How might we (preventively and cost-efficiently) manage, monitor and maintain decentralized, circular water systems?
Sensors and combination of data will be the key to the solution.
Keep in mind:
Management (volume & quality): measurement and follow-up, invoicing, technical operation, limit values
Monitoring: quality alarms, technical operation, use of system
Maintenance: remote reports and diagnostics
Households 100-200 m³/year
SMEs 200-2000 m³/year
These can be different levels of water quality, not necessarily drinking water quality.
We see remote monitoring of water quality here as the biggest challenge. This requires innovative thinking!
