- Differences in water level between cylinder and buffer of a buffered infiltrometer installation cause the infiltration rate as calculated from outflow from the inner cylinder to be in error. The author determines the error in relation to the water level difference between cylinder and buffer, the diameter and depth of installation of the cylinder, and the final hydraulic gradient.
