Clear PVC Bailers for Sampling Groundwater

eco Bailer for Ground Water Sampling by waterra

Clear eco bailers for Sampling Groundwater

Waterra carries a large inventory of Clear PVC eco Bailers for your groundwater sampling  needs.

All bailers are PFAS, PFOS & PFOA free.

Bottom Emptying

eco 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. The 0.46 inch (12 mm), 0.7 inch ( 18 mm), and 1.5 inch (38 mm) 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.

Adapts to Disposable Filters

All Clear PVC eco Bailers are easily adapted to the Waterra 0.45 micron 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.

Let’s get started...

What is your Application?

Make sure the EcoBailer diameter is smaller than the inner well diameter.

Do you need Bailer Cord or Filters for your field work?

Waterra Words of Wisdom

  • Use a smooth hand over hand technique to minimize sample agitation when recovering your sample from the well
  • We don’t recommend tipping over the bailer to decant your sample from the top of the bailer as it aerates the sample and is tricky to handle the bailer
  • Most popular are Clear PVC 1.5 inch x 3 feet long 1 Litre eco Bailers
  • Waterra Groundwater Filters work very nicely with the eco Bailers

Clear PVC eco Bailer - Fast Sinking

The Clear PVC eco Bailer for sampling groundwater is as heavy (or heavier) than conventional weighted bailers without the addition of bulky and costly weights. A better weight distribution allows the Clear PVC eco Bailer to sink straighter and the efficient valve design makes it the fastest sinking bailer available.

  • available in 4 popular sizes: 0.46, 0.70, 1.5 and 3.3 inch outside diameters
  • 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

eco Bailers are made of clear virgin PVC with a density of 1.31 grams per cubic centimeter versus polyethylene, which has a specific gravity of 0.96 to 0.98 gm/cc. Water is 1 gm/cc.

Since PVC is also transparent (whereas polyethylene is translucent), when you use Clear PVC EcoBailers you can inspect your sample while it’s still in the bailer.

Weighted Clear PVC eco Bailers

Weighted Clear PVC eco Bailers use the same design as the popular Clear PVC eco Bailers. They also feature a thicker tube wall than competing models. As a result, our Weighted Bailers are less likely to bend when handled. Bent bailers will oscillate when travelling down the well column and they will sink more slowly.
