The BioBailerTM is a quick and easy way to sample groundwater. Simply lower the bailer into your well and it fills with water as it submerses. When you pull up to retrieve the bailer the check-valve closes, trapping approximately 1L of water inside.
BioBailersTM are made from landfill-biodegradable* PVC, and will only start to biodegrade once in a microbe rich environment such as a landfill. They do not require high oxygen or temperature to biodegrade such as in a commercial compost. Achieve the same groundwater sampling integrity as non-biodegradable bailers but more responsibly.
Need to sample LNAPL / PSH?
The easiest and most cost effective way is with the Hydrocarbon only or HC BioBailers.
HC BioBailersTM allow you to collect floating LNAPL / PSH from a well, without collecting water.
The ball valve is denser than LNAPL but lighter than water so it pushes water out of the bailer while keeping the LNAPL. These bailers also have a wider mouth than regular bailers, allowing you to collect more LNAPL with each bail. Like all BiobailersTM they are landfill-biodegradable.
