What is that thing called that is used to check the foundation level of a house?
It looks like a long and narrow rectangle, and it has 3 tubes of liquid with 1 bubble in each tube.

The simplest is called a a level. They have more complex and integrated ones such as a dummy level or builder's auto level. Basically what you see Surveyors peeking through when they are making up plans for road work on laying out for a new building construct.
Also there is something called a an electronic water level or digital leveling system (see link below).Source(s): http://edo1.vci.net/waterlevel/

You describe a spirit level, but to check foundations over a distance,
there's probably a red dot laser involved as well.
We used to do it with a water filled hose with clear tubes on the ends.

What you describe is called a beam level. These are used anywhere level over a long distance needs to be checked.Source(s): Experience

It's known as a Spirit Level in England. God knows what they may call it in North America?

It's a level, but I'm sure it must have some fancy name other than that.....
