The AquaPore inline filter is the world’s first biodegradable filter capsule. Having the same special patented additive as all our other landfill biodegradable products, the AquaPore filter is a disposable plastic filter which will biodegrade when discarded to a landfill. It is especially convenient when used with low-flow groundwater sampling but can also easily be used with a bailer, or with a filter flask for surface water filtering. Use the low-cost filter connectors for an easy way to connect to your low-flow discharge line (3/8″ OD).
The AquaPore has a huge internal capacity of 800cm2 allowing it to handle high levels of turbidity.
View Test Results: The AquaPore filter has been lab tested and rinsate verified for 66 trace elements complying with ANZECC recommendations.
2 great filters to choose from. The AquaPore 800 or AquaPore 500
0.45 micron inline filter in a landfill biodegradable capsule and sealed in a biodegradable vacuum bag
A 1/2″ (12.7mm) stepped barb inlet with 1/8NTP thread to make it easy to use with low-flow groundwater sampling
Connect easily to a BioBailer (see pic.2 left) with the low cost FCP16 filter connectors, or easily connect to your water discharge line if using low-flow sampling (pic below) by using the FCP12 filter connectors

Individually vacuum sealed for cleanliness
Once used and discarded to a landfill the outer shell will biodegrade* (consumed by naturally occurring microorganisms in a landfill)
Polypropylene shell will biodegrade to plant food / humus in estimated 5-10 years in a typical landfill, depending on site conditions
A responsible way to use disposable plastic products
If you sample groundwater using the low-flow method, filtering has never been easier. Simple connect to your water discharge line using the FCP12 filter connectors (see pic above). If sampling with a BioBailer use the FCP16 filter connectors.
