Your smart phone already does this. Use a gravitameter app, set it on the kitchen counter and the manual selection on your levelers.

not only that but i'll argue that the 1/2-inch difference between the HWH system and the LevelMate would not be detected by humans. I think the operative words in the video were "perfectly level" and that's just not needed...especially at $140.00!

I just half fill a glass measuring cup and put it on the counter.
When the water inside is pretty much on the lines of the cup that's 'level enough'.
I don't require 'perfectly level', I'm OK with 'close enough'.

Looks like a solution looking for a problem. My auto level is close enough that I can't tell if if it's off by a 1/2" here or there.

Could see some benefit for those using pads and blocks to level. Give them an idea of how much is needed where.

$5 bulls eye level and used a few times and I have a very good idea of how much, which direction. And the FREE smart phone app, like the price and its geek approved.

I prefer a small torpedo level. I keep it in my side pouch, and place it on the tile floor after the auto-level is done. This way I can sit in the seat, see the level, and fine tune it. turn the level 90 deg and check other axis.

As far as levels go, the longer the level the better. Not sure about the phone apps becsue many phones are in cases.

Many people use their bathroom door as the final judge, but many doors are not mounted straight.

Main thing is that you don't roll out of bed in the middle of the night.

Regards,

Dan

Isn't there a pill joke about that?

If it feels level - close enough. Most important thing is the stove is level. Since we avoid cooking inside it is not that critical.

I recently discovered that if I put just enough water in the toilet to just cover the ball I have a built in bullseye level

Being the techie person I am, it is definitely a neat little item; however, I would never pay $140... For me, this is not worth more than $30.

Good luck!
