Watersave Australia have been nominated as a finalist in two categories of the 2009 Banksia Environmental Foundation National Awards, Australia’s environmental awards. Established in 1989, the Banksia Environmental Foundation National Awards acknowledge excellence, dedication and leadership in various areas that contribute to the environment and a sustainable future.
The awards are presented for innovative and leading products, services, designs and new business models that achieve new efficiencies and/or reductions in energy, materials, resources and waste from a lifecycle perspective. Watersave Australia have been nominated as a finalist for both the Eco-Innovation and Environmental Services categories for their Smart Meter solution.
Watersave Australia work with commercial and government organisations around the nation to monitor and minimise their water usage. Watersave Australia solution includes the Watersave Smart Meter, which has been developed by them to monitor water usage on-line through a secure website in real-time. The real-time data acquisition feature of the Watersave Smart Meter does not delay data transfer caused by power supply limitations.
The Watersave Smart Meter can also send an SMS or email alert in the event of abnormal usage and allows remote control of water usage through a solenoid valve. This approach to data acquisition enables quick identification and rectification of abnormal usage and leaks, saving lost water through leaking pipes, taps left running or a leaky cistern.
Watersave Australia sustainability solutions feature a range of water saving products and services, including the Danish designed Uridan waterless urinals, water minimising tap ware, low flushing toilets and rainwater tanks. Watersave Australia also provide leak detection services that enable quick rectification and savings in water usage and costs.
