Keep the rod plumb during each reading. Establish equal BS and FS reading distances. Equal reading distances will cancel out any error

caused by the line of sight not being parallel with the axis of the bubble tube. This is not always possible due to terrain. Common Errors Faulty rod reading (verify reading) Rod not fully extended (high reading) Tripod movement during reading Confusion between recording BS and FS entries in the field book Can You Top That?
