An Automatic System to Detect Presence of Water in Supply Lines and Maintain Water level of Underground and Overhead Tanks
Commonly most of the houses rely upon the overhead and underground tanks as the main source of water. People usually turn on the motor when their taps go dry and switch off the motor when the tank starts overflowing. This results in needless wasting of water and the lack of water in emergencies. This water is mostly coming through supply line pipes installed by the government through different schemes. The timing of this water coming is mostly irregular because it varies time to time, and in areas where it is fixed, the time is inconvenient for domestic residents to switch ON their motors and fill their tanks. Either the water comes late at night or in the daytime when the people are mostly at their jobs, so they are unable to turn ON their motors. This paper presents a solution to both these problems, a hardware model has been developed using Arduino as the main microcontroller, ultrasonic sensors to detect the level of water in tanks two pumping motors one for underground and one for an overhead tank. And one a water flow sensor is used to automatically detect the water coming in supply lines and switch on the motor. The proposed system saves water, electrical power and human efforts as the whole system is automatic.
