Wastewater effluent sampling can be challenging for wastewater treatment plant operators. Every wastewater sample is valuable. Missed samples and failures can lead to loss of data in reports, overtime for grabbing additional samples and even compliance issues. Vacuum pump water sampling technology offers a significant improvement over peristaltic pump technology for water sampling in that the peristaltic pump uses a squeezable plastic tubing as the pump which often requires replacement. A municipal wastewater plant in Ohio had experienced multiple water sampler failures in the past and was looking for something simple and more reliable to replace thier peristaltic pump which was experiencing repeated failures. Their solution was to purchase and install automatic wastewater sampling equipment which used vacuum technology to obtain the samples.
