Aquality Submitted by Timothy Daw and Jake Bjeldanes, Industrial Designers Description: water tracking system that syncs to computers to tell consumers how much water they use Designers’ statement: ‘The Aquality water tracking system is a measurement tool identifying all of your household water consumption. The three part system helps you track your water use, identify areas of waste and suggest methods of conservation. The Aquality system consists of three components: the flowmeter, the base station & your home computer or smartphone. The standard sized flowmeter ring with adapters is installed at every water terminal in your house. It uses a turbine to both assess the amount of water passing through and to gather power to transmit the signal wirelessly to the base station. The base station is easily mounted in an accessible common area, such as on the refrigerator door, so that users can access the compiled data in graphical and numerical displays. And lastly, the Aquality system includes software for your personal computer in order to organize and calibrate your water conservation system. Aquality addresses the problem of intending to conserve water without any feedback by providing hard data about all of the water consumed in your household. By tracking usage, consumers are able to understand better where water is being used and what techniques are working to conserve water.”
