Three well pumps service a mobile home park. As the water level of the main storage tank drops, one of the pumps needs to cycle on to fulfill the water system's needs.

Turning the pumps on and off required someone to manually measure the storage tank level, then walk out to one of the pumps and turn it on. To automate the pump control, the mobile home park manager installed three pairs of DX70 radios.

Water towers are used to add water or water pressure to small communities or neighborhoods during peak use times to ensure water pressure is available to all users. Defined water levels are established with both float switches and a submersible pressure sensor. When water levels drop, a wireless signal sent to the Gateway turns on a series of pumps to bring more water into the system.

Snap sample is a name for a method of sampling a liquid at a known depth without contaminating the sample with air. In a sewage plant, samples are taken hourly and placed in an evacuated jug in a refrigerator. When the jug contains 24 samples, it is removed for analysis. The chemical composition of the snap samples are analyzed to determine the extent of the contaminants. A wireless solution eliminates manual collection and potential exposure to harmful pathogens.
