    To collect water samples for testing, we are currently using a plastic grabber which consists of a long pole with a small bucket on the end (see attached photo). This relatively simple piece of equipment costs almost £70 per unit. I am wondering if anyone can recommend another piece of equipment that is more affordable. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.

    Hi Annabel – take a look at the Citizen Science Investigations intro leaflet that I’ve attached. On the last page it shows how to make a sampler from a plastic milk bottle and bamboo cane. It is an idea we borrowed from Freshwater Watch. Works fine for our CSI volunteers – thoroughly rinsed of course and rinsed before each sample.

    If we’re sampling from bridges I just use a small bucket (a 2l paint kettle is ideal) on a length of rope.

    Best wishes
