Water data service provider Watermetrics has appointed Lee Hart as its sales engineer for lower Southland.

Watermetrics says it has significant clientele in the Southern Regions and Hart's appointment recognises improved technology and increasing demand for water and irrigation management tools.

Hart has worked in water automation and instrumentation and also has over 10 years experience in pump sale and flow meter installation and verification.

The company says Hart understands irrigation and efficient water use and is ideally placed to not only introduce its new technologies  but install the right choice of equipment and service it.

Hart will be responsible for liaising with clients, sales, and servicing in Central Otago and Southland area.

Watermetrics says water use and storage has to be monitored for compliance purposes and increasingly to prove efficiency for Farm Environment Plans (FEPs). Watermetrics supplies, installs and services all related equipment. The collection of data from this equipment and its presentation for easy management decisions ensures the best use of water.

An example is combining rainfall and irrigation in graphical displays to show the effect on soil moisture. Such displays provide accuracy in soil moisture management and it's clear every situation has different responses.

This simply changes irrigatin management and saves water, the company claims.
