Groundwater Sampling

Over 25 years ago, QED installed the nation’s first dedicated bladder pump groundwater sampling system at a landfill in Wayne County, Michigan. Since then, we have led the industry in producing the most accurate, cost-effective ways to collect groundwater samples. More Well Wizard® bladder pumps are operating in monitoring wells worldwide than all other dedicated sampling pumps combined. Years of QED efforts to promote low-flow sampling, plus the introduction of MicroPurge® control equipment, have helped these methods become widely accepted practice as the ground water monitoring community looks for higher sample accuracy and lower costs. QED's state-of-art groundwater sampling product line includes portable and dedicated pumps, control modules, flow cells, water & drawdown meters, inline filters and more!

wellwizardWell Wizard® Dedicated Bladder Pumps

Over 75,000 Well Wizard bladder pumps are in use – more than all other brands and types of dedicated ground water samplers combined.

  • The most precise, reliable sampling pumps, with EPA-accepted low-flow sampling accuracy.
  • Models for every well -- low yield, short water column, depths to 1,000 feet (304.8m), well I.D. down to 1.25" (31.75 mm).
  • Exclusive PTFE bladder formulation rated for years more flex life than other bladder materials.
  • Proven reliability since 1982, with the industry's first standard 10-year warranty.
