WaterGroup Water Optimisation Solutions
Founded in 2006, WaterGroup has quickly grown to become one of Australia’s largest corporate water optimisation companies.
The company secures water and saves money through cost-effective and sustainable solutions.
Water optimisation services
WaterGroup helps clients understand where their water goes. They provide a baseline, identify cost-effective savings, streamline implementation and find solutions that make sense and work. The company also gets the necessary approvals and ensures clients get value for money.
To achieve this, the company provides a wide range of services, such as:
Smart Metering Systems for Water Efficiency
The WaterGroup SIM Logger is used for monitoring water, gas, electricity, solar, as well as tank level and other sensors. The data collected by the hardware in the field is displayed on the WaterGroup smart metering portal.
This is a highly customisable user interface where data can be viewed and managed in multiple layouts and formats. Data can be manually exported as a CSV file to be opened in Excel. Automatic delivery of data can be arranged via multiple methods. A hierarchical user access allows certain users to have different levels of permissions.
Automatic alarms and reports ensure clients get notified of any unwarranted usage and can take immediate action to secure savings.
Water Loss Management Solutions
WaterGroup’s water loss management encompasses strategies and tools to assist water utilities in their important goal of reducing non-revenue water. This can be achieved by decreasing real losses due to leakage in the water network or reducing apparent loss due to inaccuracy in revenue metering. Water utilities regard water loss management techniques as one of the most cost-effective interventions in saving water.
Water Efficiency Consulting Services
WaterGroup has unparalleled expertise in providing water efficiency consultancy services.
As part of its services, the company works with clients to:
- Determine where water is used
- Identify how much water clients can save
- Find out where potable water could be replaced with other sources
- Capture rainwater or stormwater
- Recycle grey and black water or sewer mining
- Report how much it will cost
- Implement the savings measures
- Achieve and sustain savings
WaterGroup specialises in engineering turnkey solutions for today’s value-conscious and constantly changing markets.
We look at innovative solutions that make sure clients end up with an integrated system that is appropriate for your needs, including the ongoing operation, monitoring and maintenance.
EPC / Performance Contracting Project Solutions
WaterGroup has delivered a number of energy performance contract (EPC) projects or performance contracting projects whereby we provide our clients with a range of water efficiency solutions that generate guaranteed savings.
The company’s solutions include flow efficiency fittings, smart metering, and water substitution measures.
Past WaterGroup projects
Examples of WaterGroup’s projects include:
- With a $230,000 investment, the company’s water-saving interventions are saving a major food processor more than $45,000 in water bills a year
- After installing a $54,000 Smart Metering System, a large campus stopped $78,000 worth of water from being wasted
- Designed and constructed by WaterGroup, two of the world’s largest rainwater harvesting systems now collect $38,000 worth of water free from the sky. The design includes our innovative peak flow diversion system and integrated monitoring for further system optimisation
- Development of corporate ‘water trees’ and policies, help corporations work out their water use across the board. Fully aware of increasing cost and environmental pressures, we also know how best to respond strategically to regulatory pressures
- Grey and black water recycling
- Management of approvals
Products and Services
Gas SIM Logger
WaterGroup smart meters are IECEx approved for safe use connecting them directly to gas meters.
The Sebalog N-3 network provides you with the latest measured data on a day-to-day basis with automatic data transmission to the server.
Sebalog Dx Flow and Pressure Data Logger
The Sebalog Dx data logger is a highly flexible data logger with up to four inputs, which can even include internal pressure transducers.
Sebalog P3 Pressure Logger
The Sebalog P3 data logger is a purpose-built pressure logger for use on water supply networks.
Water Loss Management Service
How much water is being lost from your water supply system? Whether it is through bursts and leaks, inefficient treatment practices, under-registration of billing meters or plain theft, it is important to 'account' for where your water is going.
Water Management Service
Smart metering systems are usually installed with consideration only to the hardware and software components such as installing the smart meters and waiting for alarms to identify leaks.
Water Recycling, Water Treatment and Rain and Stormwater Harvesting
We build water recycling, water treatment and rain and stormwater harvesting plants. We install and provide smart metering services for water, gas, power and solar. We provide products and we operate plants and networks.
Water Use Assessment
One of our core skills is our inside-out understanding of water-use at buildings and facilities. We have smart meter calibrated water balance models that allow us to quickly determine where water within your facility is used, why, when and what can be done to reduce it, how much it will cost and what it will save.
Seven Simple Steps for Internet of Things (IoT) Troubleshooting
The current trend of innovation in Internet of Things (IoT) solutions is projected to create billions of internet-connected systems over the coming few years, including many that have never existed before.
Examining the Benefits of Modern Ultrasonic Flow Meters
Recent advancements in ultrasonic flow metering technology have meant that the systems' long-held reputation for poor accuracy is now dated and largely no longer applicable.
The Cost-Effectiveness of Sigfox-Based Water Management Systems
Smart metering and automatic meter reading (AMR) systems have traditionally proven challenging to implement across entire utility networks, due the high capital and ongoing costs that are often involved.
Five Steps to More Efficient Water Management
Many facility managers find the task of attempting to continuously minimise both their power and water usage costs a time-consuming and often exhausting challenge.
WaterGroup Smart Metering Solutions at Australian National University
WaterGroup were contracted to install standalone intelligent meter (SIM) logger systems at Australia National University, in order to provide accurate water usage data to aid in the university's sustainability efforts.
Smart Metering and Sigfox Solutions
Smart metering can be defined as the usage of digital recording equipment to log usage rates of resources such as gas, water and electricity.
Examining the Cost-Effectiveness and Scalability of IoT-based AMR Systems for Water Management
Traditional Automatic Water Meter Reading (AMR) and other smart water metering technologies are infamously cost-intensive to run, meaning many water utility companies struggle to demonstrate a clear business case for using them in their operations.
Future of Smart Metering and Internet of Things (IoT)
As a decision maker with vested interests in smart water metering, there are some significant developments taking place in the Internet of Things (IoT) world with huge implications.
Dangerous Waters: The Social, Economic and Environmental Risks of Water Leakage in Mining
Water is an essential and shared resource, growing increasingly scarce across the globe, especially in Australia, where almost all regions are experiencing rainfall deficiencies.
