Abstract : The patent concerns a water sampling device using essentially a laboratory-type container preferably an 'Erlenmeyer' flask, which has openings at the top and bottom thereof to permit the passage of water therethrough as the device is lowered to the desired depth. The flask is of a conventional design modified to the extent of cutting the opening in the base. Means are provided to close each opening at the selected water depth to capture a water sample at that level. When the device is raised to the surface the necessary laboratory analysis can be conducted in the sample container without the need for transferring the sample, minimizing the likelihood of contamination.
