nents to you for immediate or short term


delivery. You can easily wire these parts
together to customize your own monitor-
ing system, and you can reconfigure and
expand as required without difficulty.

Our sales engineers and technical sup-


port staff are knowledgeable of the entire
water instrumentation industry, and they
specialize in water instrumentation and its
integration. They can recommend prod-
ucts that will address your application’s
requirements (even if those products are
not offered by Global Water), and they can
provide you with guidance in putting to-
gether systems that will meet your needs.

Integrated Solutions
Many of our clients prefer fully con-
nected and tested systems that will work
out-of-the-box with little or no assembly
required. We offer several pre-packaged,
integrated systems to monitor and control
a variety of parameters, including: the FSS
Flow Sampling System, the WQS Water
Quality Sampling System, the WQMS Wa-
ter Quality Monitoring System, and the
WE800 and WE900 Weather Stations.

In addition, unlike many other instrumen-


tation suppliers, Global Water has the ad-
vantage of our expert team that can help
to design and integrate custom instrumen-
tation solutions. Our sales engineers will
work with you to plan a custom system to
address your specific application, and our
technical engineers will build and test this
system at our factory prior to shipment.
Our technical support staff can follow up
by providing exceptional help answering
any questions you may have. Please con-
tact us to learn more about factory cus-
tomization and systems integration.
