“Water, water everywhere but not a drop to drink”

Not less than a year ago Chennai was facing a huge amount of water scarcity in most part of the City. Long queues of tanker lorry across neighbourhoods became a common sight. Families in rural areas had to survive with only three pots of water a day. The improper allocation of resources towards saving water made it more unbearable and made us realize that the crisis was pretty much man-made.

This evoked some serious questions amongst us. So should we start conserving? If so, how to do it?? The answer is very simple. That is to invest in a proper technology which can do the work for you. This is where the automatic water level controller and the water level indicator come into scene. A simple water level indicator with a buzzer system indicates you when the tank is full with a loud buzz and LED indication and the sensor automatically stops the water flow preventing the overflow of water.



The automatic water level controller comes in a wide range of models as per the requirement of the customer. Water level controllers and indicators are available both fully automatic or semi automatic. The fully automatic one is mostly preferred because there is no need for individual attention towards it.
