From time to time, a friend of Sealevel brings interesting opportunities to our team for assessment. Recently this friend introduced us to representatives from a company that manages wastewater facilities for municipalities. Heavily regulated by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA), the company must record data from their operation, including pump performance, pressure and flow — and adjust as needed.
Without a dedicated system in place, representatives were making routine visits to each facility their company manages. The remote locations of treatment plants made regular travel between multiple stations time and resource intensive. The wastewater management company wanted a solution that would enable them to monitor and report performance and status without frequent plant visits.
Key Application Requirements
- Monitors and records pressure readings
- Senses dry contact closures to assess pump performance
- Interfaces with a rain gauge to monitor flow
- Features cellular service with maximum range
The Sealevel Solution
Sealevel recommended SeaConnect 370 devices at each pool site — integrating them with cameras, sensors, and a wet weather gauge — and coordinating with SeaCloud software. Rainfall measurements and rainwater chemical analysis prompt chemical systems to refine post-rain treatments, reducing green pool occurrence. Sensors take regular measurements of pool water temperature and chemical levels. Data points outside accepted temperature thresholds trigger water flow and heating system adjustments; chemical measurements are analyzed to customize pool kits efficiently, without delay.
Sealevel SeaConnect hardware and SeaCloud software created a smart pool network that works around the clock in all conditions. As a result, costs declined, water waste decreased and chemical adjustments were streamlined.
