Keeps water use on the level

Written by  Mark Daniel

Rural folks wringing their hands about tank water levels will welcome a device from Davey Water Products.

Household tensions rise as tank levels fall and rain holds off, so you give up and order a tanker-full that usually arrives just before the heavens open.

Davey’s new TankSense allows real-time monitoring of tank levels; it plumbs into the delivery feed from the tank with a single ¼-inch BSP fitting.

The TankSense works via a smartphone app to the householder informed of tank levels; it delivers alerts as levels get low, predicts rainfall based on weather forecasts and is customisable to individual households or businesses. 

The system also tracks monthly water use and predicts how many days supply remains in the tank.

Compatible with iOS and Android devices, the system has a 50-100m working range via a Bluetooth connection, pressure accuracy of +/- 1% and a battery life of 24 months.
