Sampling with the Discrete Interval Sampler
The Sample Release Device NEVER goes down the well.
- Before using the Discrete Interval Sampler, there are two important pieces of information needed.
- Desired Sampling Depth
- Static Water Level
|Setting the Operation Pressure|
|Sampler depth below grade (ft) - static water level below grade (ft) x 0.43 + 10 psi||Sampler depth below grade (m) - static water level (m) x 9.8 + 70 kPa|
|Sampling Depth is 100 ft. - Static Water Level at 30 ft. x 0.43 + 10 psi = 40 psi
Therefore the Discrete Interval Sampler should be pressurized to 40 psi for proper operation.
If no sample is coming out of the Discrete Interval Sampler, loosen the Compression Fitting to allow venting and then take your sample.
