Bailers

Canpipe carries a large inventory of Waterra Clear EcoBailers for your groundwater monitoring needs.

These bailers are as heavy (or heavier) than conventional weighted bailers without the addition of bulky and costly weights. A better weight distribution allows the Clear PVC EcoBailer to sink straighter and the efficient valve design makes it the fastest sinking bailer available.

Features:
  • faster sinking than polyethylene bailers
  • clear tube allows sample inspection within the bailer
  • connects directly to inline filters for easy filtration, no pressurization needed
  • requires less material to produce, resulting in less waste and cost to the environment
  • PVC ball with no leakage
  • PFAS, PFOS & PFOA free
  • Available in 4 popular sizes
Type Length Capacity
0.46” O.D 3’ 80ml
0.70” O.D. 3’ 200ml
1.50” O.D. 3’ 1027ml
1.5” O.D. 1’ 347ml

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 bailers come with the handy Bottom Emptying Spout. It assists in collecting non-aerated samples from the valve end of the bailer, which is ideal for VOC sample collection.

All Clear PVC EcoBailers are easily adapted to the Waterra Groundwater Filters 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 a Waterra 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 litre sample can be filtered in under 2 minutes using this method.
