Surveying Rods

We carry all types of Rods such as Grade Rods, Level Rods, Direct Elevation Rods, Sight Rods, Lenker Rods, and Specialty Smart Rods. Grade Rods, also known as Level Rods, are a necessary tool for most building contractors, paving companies, excavation companies, concrete professionals, and plumbers residential or commercial. As an added feature on some rod models, they have measuring ruler capabilities, where you can extend the rod up to the underside of a bridge or ceiling and then read the height at eye-level. Also be aware that some rods have their measuring faces made for when using laser levels as opposed to an optical level. Keep in mind that a fiberglass grade rod will last much longer than an aluminum grade rod, given that both types are cared for (nothing can last if you run over it with a truck or heavy equipment).

We also have Surveying Prism Poles, see our selection of Surveying Poles here.

Remember, grade rods are also known as "leveling rods" or "builders rods" , and are not only used by land surveyors. Most of the time, grade rods are used by contractors that build many different things but mostly including concrete work, paving asphalt, installing concrete floors, driveways and foundations, trenching and piping gravity utilities like sanitary sewer and storm drains, as well as other work including setting finished floor elevations and finish grades for hardscapes such as sidewalks and parking lots. Some contractors use level rods for setting structures like dewatering devices and retention ponds, and setting septic tanks. Keep in mind that fiberglass grade rods typically last longer than ones made of aluminum. Also, the markings on fiberglass grade rods tend to last longer and not get rubbed or scratched off like they typically do an aluminum level rod. Many of our builders rods are sold with a soft case which helps protect the rod from the elements.
