IoT based Solar Water Purification and Quality Assessment
Keywords:Assessment, Dirty water, Filters, Internet of Things, Ph, Quality assessment, Solar, Turbidity, Water purification
In the modern era where the scarcity of freshwater is increasing daily, the strain we place on our resources due to the over use is causing irreversible damage. Adding on, the purity and quality of the water is to be of great concern for water used in households. The total quality management of the water available is nowadays as important as water itself. Here we are envisioning a device that is sustainable and also portable in order to be used in remote places and during extreme conditions. The use of solar panels to power the device makes it a cleaner technology and more environmentally friendly. The water is filtered using the process of Reverse osmosis making use of RO candle filters that are available commercially. It is used so as to desalinate-detoxify-destroy pathogens and other microbes. The purified water is measured for its pH and turbidity using sensors which are IOT based and will notify the user about the values. This device is a necessity as it finds its application in military areas during emergencies like a ship wreck or an attack also for those remote locations where freshwater availability is still a mirage. This portable module can be further modified to add a garbage collector unit if needed. In conclusion this device is a cleaner cost-effective sustainable approach towards freshwater harvesting.
