Hardware
necessary tools and implements for monitoring 
Monitoring hardware is the equipment used during the monitoring 
of groundwater quality and/or quantity. Much monitoring
hardware is electric, requiring a battery or alternating
current, but hardware may also be pneumatic, manual, etc.


Examples of hardware typically used in groundwater monitoring
include pumps (centrifugal, bladder, peristaltic, suction,
etc.), bailers, data loggers (including modem for data
transfer), field measurement instruments (such as pH-meters),
water-level probes, compressors, generators and sample
containers.

For many applications, monitoring hardware must posses
specific qualities, i.e. hardware intended for field use
must be robust; hardware that comes in contact with samples
must be clean and constructed of inert materials; hardware
must be reliable, especially for equipment which logs continuously
without the presence of personnel.
