Many industries depend on their remote water tanks. Ensuring that they remain full and free from leaks requires continual visits. But visits to these distant locations cost money related to employees, fuel, and vehicle wear and tear.
If visits are scheduled around average estimates of water use, they can fail to respond to actual conditions. This results in wasted drive time, without eliminating the chance of tanks going dry or springing leaks. Without eyes on the site, leaks can worsen, and tanks can end up dry for long periods. The solution is remote water tank monitoring.
By installing remote terminal units (RTUs) on-site, companies can monitor water levels from their central offices.
This allows them to respond to problems as soon as they arise, instead of waiting for the next scheduled visit. When they do respond, they’ll know what they’re dealing with ahead of time, enabling technicians to travel equipped with the right tools for the job.
