Thanks for taking your time to read our reviews on the best spirit levels that are currently available on the United Kingdom marketplace.
These are used for a wide range of purposes and mainly by brick layers. However, there are plenty of uses for these around the home, and even if you only do the very bare minimum of DIY, you should still have some sort of level in the house

Spirit Level Conclusions
You have seen some top quality spirit levels here and that's putting it lightly. Each and every one we have reviewed are excellent and will do a great job for you.
There are a few rules or things you should look for when buying a spirit level. If you aren't going for one we have recommended then make sure you have the following covered.
- Get one with unbreakable vials ( where the bubble is held ). They should be magnified and luminescent also.
- Make sure it is of strong construction and is shock proof and dust proof.
- Check the sensitivity as too much either way makes them hard to use. A sensitivity rate of 10mm/m is about right for a standard spirit level
- There are some really well priced spirit level sets on offer at the minute, so they may be worth checking out too
You cant go that far wrong so don't be worrying, really they are only a bubble in a holder after all! I actually use a laser level for these types of jobs and some of them are not that expensive if you only need to use it for the odd job.

As well as our many tool reviews, we have also included a whole range of articles, on how to use them. This will include the many tasks that you may have to do at home. That could include putting up a shelf, drilling through tiles, drilling through concrete, laying carpet, fixing a leaking tap, and just about any other thing that you can think of.
The site is managed and run by myself Enda, an electrician by trade, and by my friend Geoff, a plumber with many years of experience.
