Global Water's SP200 variable speed portable peristaltic pump sampler is ideal for removing samples from shallow wells and surface water, including lakes, ponds, and holding pools.
The SP200 variable speed portable peristaltic pump sampler is ideal for sample removal from shallow wells and surface water, including lakes, ponds, and holding pools. The water sampler is lightweight, rugged, easy to use, weather resistant, and requires minimal maintenance. The peristaltic pump is designed to take a manual sample and has the ability to back flush the sample hose once you are finished taking the sample.
The water sampler operates using an external 12 volt DC power source that can supply at least 2 A continuous. The variable speed motor is reversible and can sample at any speed from a trickle up to 500 ml per minute. A power cord, 10 ft (3.05 m) long, is included with each variable speed peristaltic pump sampler. The power cord is fitted with alligator clips for easy connection to almost any 12 volt DC battery, such as a car battery or a small 12V, 5 AH gel cell.
To provide high sample integrity, the water sample only contacts the norprene and polyethylene tubing. The tubing is easily cleaned or replaced. To avoid cross contamination or lengthy decontamination procedures simply change the inexpensive tubing between samples.

What does "minimal maintenance" mean?
The SP200 sampler is rain resistant and rugged making the only required maintenance a wipe down of the carrying case and routinely rinsing the pickup hose and debris strainer with mild soap and water.
What is the max flow rate?
The max flow at 4 ft. head is 500m per minute.
With an average rainfall of only 12.5 inches per year and a population that's growing faster than the country's , Arizona is a state that faces unique challenges, especially when it comes to clean, safe water. The Water Quality Division of the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) protects and enhances public health and the environment by monitoring and regulating drinking water. And although they make use of the latest scientific methods and new technology, given the current state of Arizona's water system, they also rely upon low-tech equipment and cooperation from members of the community to monitor water quality in the state. Team members in the Groundwater Protection Program work to sample, test and characterize groundwater quality in all 51 of Arizona’s basins.Read More
William Anderegg, assistant professor of biology at the University of Utah, has spent years studying drought-stricken trees all over the world. As climate change is expected to cause increased drought severity in the future, the work of Anderegg and his colleagues becomes increasingly important. In a previous interview for the Environmental Monitor , Anderegg found that a tree’s hydraulic safety margin was the best indicator of whether a tree would survive drought. The hydraulic safety margin is an expression of how the tree reacts under drought conditions, where there is very little water being pulled up the tree’s transport system and air is being pulled up instead. “It’s like a heart attack for the tree,” he noted.Read More
You've probably heard of the Four Corners region of the United States; that's where the corners of Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado meet at one point. These same four states are also part of the Colorado River Storage Project (CRSP), which began to change the face of the American West in 1956, enabling the population explosions in places like Phoenix and Los Angeles to continue thanks to usable water. Glen Canyon Dam is 220 meters high and 480 meters wide, and this massive structure has changed this section of the Colorado River all the way to Lake Mead dramatically. It has also increased low-flow magnitudes, decreased peak flow magnitudes and volumes and caused fluctuations in daily discharge levels that the area relies upon for generation of hydroelectric power.Read More
