Water Monitoring Technology

Salamander Group has developed and patented award-winning water monitoring technology for the effective management and continuous monitoring of water quality and chlorine within water distribution networks and surface water applications.

Applications of our water monitoring technologies include:

Water quality compliance monitoring
Improving scheduling operations and maintenance strategies
Customer complaint response
Maintenance and works monitoring
Network integrity monitoring
Industrial process water quality monitoring
Maintaining water security

Proactive Network Management

Proactive management of the water distribution network can achieve improvements in water quality, reduction in customer complaints and costs savings. Achieving proactive network management requires continuous information about the condition of the network to enable managers to make informed decisions. The extensive and inaccessible nature of the water distribution network has previously made such information difficult to collect. ChloroClam® and HydraClam® overcome this hurdle through accessing the network via hydrant points, which opens up the network to continuous monitoring. Through collecting and combining data streams from across the network, via ChloroClam®, HydraClam® and existing flow and pressure monitors, network operations can now be optimized and proactively managed to deliver:

  • Cost savings through better ways of working and focused maintenance regimes
  • Reduced discolouration, taste and odour issues
  • Improved water quality at the tap
  • Reduced customer complaints

Surface Water Technology

Clam RTU logo

The Salamander Clam RTU can be used with a wide range of third party sensors to monitor the water environment. From rainfall, upland and lowland water courses, lakes and reservoirs to drinking water networks, many parameters defining water quality can be measured, stored and uploaded to the cloud based Clamnet data portal.

Third party equipment which is regularly supplied with our Clam RTUs include a variety of sensors manufactured by In-Situ and YSI.
