The Award Winning
Snap Sampler™

In Situ Passive Groundwater Sampling

Passive sampling relies on natural flow-through in the well and "passive" equilibration between the well and aquifer before sample collection. No water is pumped from the well. Sampling can take as little as ~15 minutes per well with dedicated Snap Samplers.

  • Snap Samplers can be used at depths up to 600" (182m)
  • Snap Samplers can be chained together for multilevel monitoring
  • Snap Samplers can be employed with 40 ml (also available in amber), 125 ml and 350 ml sampling containers
  • Snap Samplers are dedicated

The Snap Sampler seals samples in situ – eliminating the pour step at the well head. As a result, samples from the Snap Sampler are more consistent with conditions in the well.

The Snap Sampler collects a downhole water sample that can be tested for any chemical – there are no analyte limitations.

Snap Samplers capture undisturbed samples from a specific position in the well without agitation. Excellent for a high quality sealed sample, turbidity-sensitive analytes (such as metals and many organic chemicals) and low yield wells.

Snap Samplers are dedicated (all water collected is utilized for sample analysis). Bottles are sent to the lab and replaced with fresh units during each sampling event.

No solid or liquid contaminated waste handling is required.

Buy your Snap Sampler today and your representative will set up a shipping schedule for sampling events.

UPEA Geopump monitoring well sampling

Rachael Smith, an Environmental Technician with U.P. Engineers and Architects, Inc., samples a monitoring well using a Geotech geopump™ peristaltic pump. "We have two geopumps that we use at this site for the semi-annual sampling. With about 15 wells to sample, we can use one pump to sample while we use the other pump to purge the next well. This really streamlines the process!"
