A system for remote monitoring and management of the water-supply and sewerage network
The key benefit of implementing the Smart Aqua system is an increased level of utility sales data capture and the company’s revenues. Other benefits observed after the system implementation:
- Increased level of consumption data capture
- Immediate response to the network’s measurement and system alarms
- Reduced flow losses
- Reduced direct and indirect costs of the company
- Improved image of the company in terms of innovation and technology
- Improved quality of the customer service through better management and focus on the quality of the product sold
- View of the end users’ profiles
- Network inventory: geolocation and passporting
- The volume of consumption data capture made realistic by eliminating visual readings and readings declared by the end users
Smart Aqua is a system solution for remote monitoring and management of a water-supply network. It captures, aggregates and analyses data and uses programming according to hydraulic and GIS models in order to ensure fully realistic automatic network control. Smart Aqua offers the possibility to fully manage the needs of both large and small end users, and at the same time to control the production and change. The system supports all customer/end user service processes with intuitive and friendly Customer Panel and e-Invoice modules.
Main Smart Aqua features

- customer service
- GIS network inventory
- network modelling
- analysis plus management
01. What is network control – the Smart Aqua module?
The idea behind network control in the Smart Aqua system is full network automation by direct control on the basis of data retrieved via two-way real-time communications. What makes this possible is an online analysis of the network performance and the actual external conditions. This enables the creation of self-controlled networks with minimum human factor risk involved.
