Title: APPARATUS FOR MEASURING WATER QUALITY
Abstract:
The present invention related to an apparatus for measuring water quality in-line in a water pipe. The apparatus comprises a manifold block and a tube. The manifold block comprises a plurality of apertures in which may be disposed a plurality of sensors. The sensors are attached to these apertures prior to the manifold block being attached to the pipe. The manifold block is then attached to the pipe and is held in place by the tube. The tube is threaded at one end and is screwed into a pipe such that the manifold block is firmly held in place. The arrangement of the manifold block and the tube is such that it enables the manifold block to be positioned in a predetermined location with respect to the pipe and locked in place with a single hand.
