Water Sampler

The local sheriff's Dept. Bomb Squad called me yesterday with a problem.
They have located two 55 gal drums of unknown substances in a lake. The water is about 15 feet and before they dive on them they wanted to have a water quality check from the location of the drums.

I rigged a medical syringe with black tape onto the jaws of the manipulator, when it opens I am able to get about 5 mls of water drawn into it. The Sheriff's folks said that would be more than sufficient for a test by the HazMat team.

I cycled it 25 times and no problem, it worked each time. I will be doing the sample for them next week and will let you know if we find anything.

Here is a photo, not very neat but it works great.
