Commercial Remote Monitoring
As a Secondwind commercial water treatment customer, you place a lot of value in the quality of your water. You’ve invested in our water treatment equipment for your own particular needs, whether it be great tasting beer, clean molds for your chocolates, sanitized medical equipment, or proper humidification, to name just a few possibilities.
In spite of this commitment to water quality, some of our customers don’t have knowledge, in real time, of the status of their water supply, pumps, storage, and controls. They don’t necessarily know if and when there is a problem of some sort. This lack of knowledge can lead to costly accidents, unhappy customers, spoiled products and more.
Luckily, there’s an easy solution! You can easily have an affordable remote monitoring and alarm system with remote access added to your water system.
There’s a gas gauge in your car so you don’t run out of gas.
Why not have a status gauge on your water so you don’t run out of water?
Our monitoring system has the capacity to:
- monitor your well(s), pumps, flow rates, and water pressure;
- keep tabs on station temperature, station flooding, and intruders;
- continually assess storage volume, treatment functions, power supply, and pump cycles.
Alarms functions alert you if a well delivers less flow than expected, if atmospheric is too low or too high, if the discharge pressure to the community is too low or high. If a well fails, you then know it before you run out of water. Frequently this information helps you to avoid running out of water.
A live website monitors these functions, and you are able to log in at any time. You can view graphs and reports for a day, month, year, or custom timeframe. You can view reports on alarm status and history, and more.
You customize your notifications. You can receive real-time texts and/or emails to alert you when something is wrong as well as ease your mind to tell you everything is okay.
Large water systems have very sophisticated and expensive Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems. Even the name is intimidating. This type of system was often out of reach for smaller water systems. Luckily, more and more remote monitoring systems are being designed for smaller water systems and they are very affordable.
Remote Monitoring Standardization
These monitoring and alert systems are now pretty much standard with any new control panel. This doesn’t mean older systems have to miss out. The monitors are also easy to add to an existing water system. More and more of our commercial and public water system customers add this function to their existing water treatment equipment.
While this system is designed primarily for PWS use, it has many other commercial applications. It can be used to monitor the water supply in any building, especially for water critical applications. For example, if you have equipment that requires RO (reverse osmosis) or DI (deionized) water to operate, this system can provide remote visibility to your supply and alert you by text and/or email if that supply is compromised. We used this system in a seasonal lake house so the property manager would always know the water was operational before the owner got there. It eliminated the possibility of the owner showing up and finding there was no water.
These remote monitoring systems are typically thousands, not tens of thousands of dollars. They are worth considering for an aspect of your system that is absolutely essential and one of your important investments.
