Global Water’s PL200-G Water Pressure Datalogger makes it easy for you to verify low water pressure complaints, locate water pressure spikes, and even provide data for water distribution system modeling. With its standard ¾" garden hose connection and compact, water-resistant enclosure, you can use the PL200-G to record water pressure data just about anywhere.
The unit’s massive memory buffer will store over 81,000 readings, with user-defined intervals from 1 per second to more than 1 per year. You can easily capture momentary pressure spikes and dips with the PL200-G’s fast, 10 water pressure samples per second sampling mode. You can also use the unit’s programmable start and stop alarm times to synchronize multiple PL200-G’s to start at the same
time, delay starting until a preset time, or limit the number of recordings during a day.
The unit operates on two standard 9 volt batteries, which it monitors so you will not be caught off guard with dead batteries. Data is stored in nonvolatile flash memory so your water pressure data will be safe.
The PL200-G is equipped with a standard USB data port and includes our user friendly Global Logger II Windows software, which allows for easy setup, calibration, upload, and data transfer to a spreadsheet program on your laptop or desktop PC. The Global Logger II software also has online help files that are easily accessed using drop down menus and links so that you can quickly find the answers
to your questions.

Enormous amounts of excess nitrogen hit water bodies all over the globe, including the U.S., due to runoff from agricultural and other human activities. This nitrogen can cause dead zones and harmful algal growth. Before it reaches the ocean, microbes can process and remove some of it from stream sediments, connected aquifers and tidal freshwater zones. Thanks to this process, coasts can have a decreased likelihood of harmful algal blooms.
Keeping coastal waters clean is important for many reasons, including the fact that about 60% of the U.S. population lives on coasts. But despite the importance of these nitrogen processes, researchers have not fully investigated how they work.Read More
The Chesapeake Bay is the site of recurring seasonal dead zones: areas of low dissolved oxygen where aquatic life struggles to survive if it can at all. In 2020, a dead zone in the Maryland portion of the bay was one of the smallest since 1985, when record keeping began. The hypoxic area in the Virginia portion of the bay was smaller and briefer than many years previous.
But the problem isn’t gone yet, and looking forward, climate change will play a big role in determining the size and severity of dead zones throughout the bay. It could make it harder to get hypoxia under control in some places.Read More
As climate change lifts the sea level in the Gulf of Mexico, it’s lifting levels of enterococci bacteria on Texas’s beaches, too.
New research out of the Gulf shows that high levels of enterococci bacteria, which come from humans and other animals and can cause disease, are correlated with proximity to large human populations and sea level rise and are increasing over time.
The research highlights an area of growing concern for public health and safety on popular recreational beaches. While sea level is projected to continue rising, it’s not a guarantee that bacteria levels will as well.Read More
