Add a few drops of summat like fairy liquid to the water otherwise the meniscus (surface tension) will hold the float up in the water so you tend to overshot the float... and when you get to your local lake your float sinks

Honestly, get a sensas dosapiombo shotting gauge, the come in two different sizes, standard and large

all you need is a jam jar then, place the float in the dosa, then just add shot until the required length of tip is showing

seriously easy to use and accurate

I've got a dosapiomba. It's a brilliant bit of kit.

I got one of those glass tubes with plastic fish in it, threw away the fish and use that, (it's about 70 cms long).
