Rainwater System

Company Reference: 

Talking Tanks monitors water levels in rainwater tanks, automatically releasing water at a controlled rate if required. The system preempts the release of water from set points chosen by the user according to rain or storm predictions, which are received via a communications link to the Bureau of Meteorology. An advanced algorithm analyzes how successful the capture of rainwater was and adjusts accordingly for future events.
