Prevent Sample Contamination with Geotech’s No-PFC Bladder Pump

PFC’s (per fluorinated chemicals) are all the rage right now. Groundwater polluted by PFC’s are becoming more and more common. In November 2016, the USEPA set a health advisory level of 70 PPT (parts per trillion) for two common PFC’s. With such a low level, sampling plans must consider and prevent possible contamination from sampling equipment. The last thing you want is a false positive that puts your site on the news!

Geotech is pleased to announce the industry’s first bladder pump made without PFC materials! With the sans-PFC option, you can be assured that measured PFOA and PFOS concentrations are not from Geotech’s pump!

Made with stainless steel and other non-PFC materials


  • Constructed of 316 stainless steel
  • Portable turnkey systems available
  • Easy-to-open housings
  • Quick-change bladder configuration
  • Drop tube intake option for deeper sampling
  • Extra bladders are readily available
  • Tubing
  • Compatible with the Geotech Geocontrol PRO & BP Controller units
  • CE rated for quality


A Quick Background on PFC’s:
PFC’s are compounds used in household goods such as nonstick cookware and even microwave popcorn bags. PFOA and PFOS are the two most commonly used PFC’s. They are currently the subject of several lawsuits alleging contamination and negligence. They are also used to make aqueous film forming foam (AFFF) to fight fires - the contaminant of many remediation sites.

36in and 18in Portable Bladder Pumps
1.66" x 36" and 1.66" x 18" sizes

The EPA has been working with manufacturers to reduce use of PFOA and PFOS since 2000. In March 2014, the EPA listed it as an emerging contaminant of concern, and listed it as a health advisory late last year.

The EPA’s current health advisory level is 70 PPT for PFOA and PFOS (combined). Whenever a sample comes back higher than 70 PPT for either or both contaminants, water systems must inform their state drinking water safety agency. Additional sampling must occur quickly to assess the level, scope, and localized source of contamination.
