Many people ask me, why do you have a water level alarm at your home. Why do I promote water level indicator? What are the uses of water alarm? So to answer this finally I have written an article to answer everyone.

What are the uses of water alarm for tank?

To answer this question, first I want to ask a question. Do you have water tank at your home? Are there fixed timings for municipal water you receive? If yes, then you should read this article.

To begin with, I will first explain to you what a water level indicator is. A water level alarm or indicator is a device which helps you to monitor water level in your tank. A water tank may be any storage tank at your home, a Sintex tank, underground tank or overhead tank. This device displays the level of water available in your storage container.

Your next question will be, why do we need a water level indicator for tank?

Guys, a water alarm or water level indicator is the most useful and nowadays the most necessary device with the house or society. This helps us maintain water level in the tanks. Also by implementing this device helps in saving good drinkable water.

Your next question will be how can a water alarm save water?

Though this is just a water alarm, this can save a lot of water. Uses of water alarm are satisfying. How? Look around, we all have motors which pump the water towards the storage tanks. We turn on the water pumps, leave them turned on until the water overflows from the tank. And when do we turn them off, when we see plenty of water wasted, draining away into the drainage. So why to waste million rupees water (pumping fresh water to your home requires a lot of money and with depleting fresh water sources, water is of million rupees). So if everyone installs this device in our homes and societies, we will save a lot of water going into the drainage system.

When I implemented this, I calculated (average 0.5 hp water pump discharge is 33 litres per minute) so just 5 minutes delay will give 33 x 5 means 165 litres per house. On an average 100 houses will waste 165 x 100, means 16,500 litres per day.
