ecobailer weight system
For a super fast sink rate you can utilize the 7/8' stainless steel weight. This weight can be easily screwed onto the bottom spout of the bailer and reused when needed. No other bailer offers this innovative, inexpensive and reusable weight system!
Ecobailers are made of clear virgin PVC with a density of 1.31 whereas most disposable bailers are made of polyethylene which has a specific gravity of 0.96 to 0.98. PVC is also transparent whereas polyethylene is translucent, because of this, when you use the Waterra EcoBailer you can inspect your sample while it's still in the bailer.
These bailers are designed with a special valve and valve seat to provide more positive sealing and less clogging when removing the bailer from the well. All Waterra bailers, including the narrow 0.7' and 0.4', come with the handy bottom emptying spout. These longer bottom spouts help prevent silt from interfering with the check ball and causing potential leakage. They also assist in collecting non-aerated samples from the valve end of the bailer, which is ideal for VOC sample collection.
adapts to disposable filters
All Waterra Clear PVC EcoBailers are easily adapted to the Waterra FHT-45 Disposable Groundwater Filter for collection of samples for metals analysis directly from the bailer. A short length of 1/4' OD or 1/2” OD LDPE tubing along with the bottom emptying spout can be used to easily connect the FHT-45 or FMT-45 inline disposable groundwater filter to the bailer. This allows the bailed sample to flow by gravity directly through the filter and into a sample container. In many cases a 1 liter sample can be filtered in under 2 minutes using this method.
