What is Aquamonitor?
The Aquamonitor Smart Water Consumption Monitor is a new to the world product, designed and manufactured in Australia. The product provides water users with the benefits of smart metering, which allows water consumers to understand, manage and reduce water usage and to prevent water wastage from leaks and abnormal usage.
In times of low rainfall, during water restrictions and with increasing water costs, the Aquamonitor is an invaluable tool with breakthrough affordability. The alerts and indicators provided by the monitor are designed to stop water wastage which is a cost to users, to the community and the environment. As an educational tool the Aquamonitor is ideal for discovering and comparing water uses and usage within the home. Outside the home, it can be used in a wide variety of applications including toilet and shower blocks, in washing and cleaning operations, for water efficiency management and sustainability audits.
An indoor Display Unit shows real time water consumption from a water meter and provides visual and sound alerts if there is a potential problem such as a leak. One Display Unit can connect to one Mains Sensor and show the consumption of the connected sensor. This means that you can monitor the total household consumption from all water sources. Other information includes quartertly consumption figures and water costs, weekly and daily (24 hour) history and per person usage.
Mains water usage is monitored by attaching a Mains Sensor to an existing water meter. The sensor is powered by a single AA battery and sends flow information to the Display Unit every minute using a wireless connection. It is designed for self-installation and doesn’t usually need any plumbing changes. The sensor is non-contact with water and makes use of the ‘pulse output’ facility that is built-in to most water meters. The arrangement of the pulse output depends on the type of water meter and so the Aquamonitor Mains Sensor is available in a range of models to suit different types of meters.
