Waterwatch Water Level Sensor

The Waterwatch LS1 is a highly configurable non-contact remote liquid surface level sensor ideal for water storage monitoring. Trusted by water utilities, councils, regional government, and homeowners around the world, the LS1 is the gold standard in water level monitoring.

The LS1 can be configured to take measurements at intervals between every 5 minutes to daily, providing from 3 to 10+yrs battery life.

Effortlessly monitor dams, ponds, troughs, and open tanks to ensure they are working effectively and you are maximising the use of your water assets. Liquid level measurements are collected by the LS1 and communicated to the Waterwatch Live cloud platform providing up to date measurement information. Rising, falling and rapid change alarms can be set and used to positive results.

Case Study

Carwoola Station (MLA)The historic Carwoola Station near Canberra Australia relies heavily on the river that runs directly through its heart. Water is pumped from the river to holding tanks and ponds, for irrigation and stock. The river provides for the station but it is also one of the biggest hazards when in flood. A significant productive area of the station is within the river flats that are subject to flooding from time to time. Waterwatch LS1  sensors were mounted at three points along the river providing river level visibility to station staff while on or off the property. With built in level threshold triggers and rapid level early warning capability the staff are  always aware of when and where it is safe to cross the river.
