2.Easy To Use

  • Fewer Technicians Needed for Sampling
  • Easier to Carry and Store
  • Little to No Waste
  • Minimum Training Time
  • Safer than Many Other Methods

The HydraSleeve is one of the easiest sampling methods available, and requires less effort, less strain, and less personnel. There is little training required and they can be easily transported or shipped.

3.More Cost Effective

cost_comparison

When it comes to cost comparisons between the HydraSleeve and other common methods of sampling, there's NO comparison! In an independent study, the HydraSleeve was the most cost effective methods of sampling available.

Costs included equipment and labor per well averaged over 20 wells.

4.Reduced Carbon Footprint

  • 58% Reduction in CO2
  • 99.8% Reduction in Wastewater
  • 49% Reduction in Sampling Days

The HydraSleeve can reduce your carbon footprint. In a very recent independent study that featured a comprehensive Carbon Footprint Analysis, the HydraSleeve was shown to be a drastically better choice for the environment.
