Global Water's SP250 quick release water sampler is ideal for sample removal from wastewater, shallow wells and surface water, including lakes, ponds, and holding pools.
The SP250 quick release water sampler is ideal for sample removal from wastewater, 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 draw water samples at a wide range of speed. A power cord, 10 ft (3.05 m) long, is included with each quick release water sampler. The power cord is fitted with alligator clips for easy connection to most 12-volt DC batteries, including car batteries or small 12V, 5 AH gel cells.
To provide high sample integrity, the water sample only contacts the norprene and polyethylene tubing. The tubing is easily cleaned or replaced. The Masterflex easy load design and adjustable tubing retention system allow for multiple tubing sizes and for changing the tubing without removing the pump head from the drive. To avoid cross contamination or lengthy decontamination procedures simply change the inexpensive tubing between samples.

How should I set up the intake strainer?
The intake strainer should be submerged under water and should be situated to avoid contact with the bottom.
How does the sampler receive power?
The water sampler operates using an external 12 volt DC power source such as a battery. A 10ft power cord is included and fitted with alligator clips for easy connection to most 12V batteries, including car batteries or small 12V, 5 AH gel cells.
In the wake of various water quality crises from Flint, Michigan and Puerto Rico, there is a growing interest and demand among consumers for home water testing. Enter DIY water testing kits like Tap Score by SimpleWater. Tap Score in particular was conceived of and launched by former UC Berkeley grad student John Pujol and co-founder and CTO Julio Rodriguez. “In 2015 we began testing small and rural communities for arsenic in their water,” Pujol explains. “We found it much more frequently than we expected, and also discovered that people in these towns greatly appreciated someone telling them what was in their water and how to fix it.Read More
For most of us, when we think of nitrate and agricultural pollution, we think of the nitrate that comes from fertilizers and leaches quickly through the soil. The effects of this kind of pollution are realized quickly, but researchers from Lancaster University and the British Geological Survey have recently revealed an underground time bomb of nitrate in rock. In the recent paper , lead author and hydrogeologist Matthew Ascott and the team quantified the vast amounts of nitrate that exist within the layers of rock between the soil and groundwater tables for the first time. They discovered that there is about twice as much nitrate lurking in this rocky vadose zone than there is in the soil—up to 180 million tons—nitrate that has been omitted from global scale nitrogen budgets.Read More
In a state that knows water is perhaps the single most decisive factor in its continued existence, the Arizona Water Center (AWC), part of the United States Geological Survey (USGS), plays a critically important role. James Leenhouts, Director of the AWC and a hydrologist by training, has lived in Arizona for decades, and devoted his career to helping Arizonans cope with the unique challenges water presents. “A key part of what we do is provide information for resource managers to answer their questions,” Leenhouts explains. “For example, if someone wants to put wells in a certain place in the aquifer, how will it affect nearby wells?” It's a fair question.Read More
