I don't quite understand the question. If you want an insulation rated for
wet locations, pretty much anything with a W in its letters like TW, THW,
THWN, etc. If you want a metal that won't oxidize under water, gold works

water level of pipe

i need to measure the water level in a 1/2 " pipe that is buried in the
ground. the water is 100 - 150 feet down. i do not want to use an
electronic tape. any ideas?
IMO he is not giving enough information about what he is trying to do
to get useful help from this group
OP there are whole companys that specialze in instruments for measuring
all sorts of stuff
why re-invent the wheel?
or Google water level measuring
by the time you're done messing around with home brew solutions you
will have spent enough time & energy to have bought an engineered "off
the shelf" solution
OK. i would like to use a pair of wires for detecting the level of
water in a pipe. I want to place resistors every inch and as the water
fluctuates it will short out the resistors. I can then read the voltage
to determine the resistance and then the distance of the water. My
source is a 3 volt DC.
I"m having a hard time put this into words. But some how I don't think
that will work. The current flow with the water level over a resistor
or under it would be about the same. Since the current is flowing from
wire to wire. I doubt your project will work.
