In most situations, a container on a telescopic handle is a vast improvement over the old “can on a rope”. The container can be positioned to take the sample in the middle of the stream, or under a discharging pipe. Samples can be taken “through” bushes and brambles and an accurate sample taken without dragging the stream bed and dislodging sediment.
Please Note: Standard Handles are made of fibreglass and do not conduct electricity. Short and XL Handles are made of Aluminium and will conduct electricity. Please be aware near pylons and electric fences.
