SODAQ Water is designed to work autonomously, as many water sources are difficult to reach, and expensive to test regularly. Hence SODAQ Water is rated to IP 67, and monitors its location, electric circuits and battery health continuously. Anomalies are reported in the dashboard allowing for proactive maintenance or replacement planning. SODAQ Water has already racked up many years of measurements in water tanks, ditches, rivers, estuaries.
Electrical conductivity can be used as an indication of water purity, and is one of the most useful and commonly measured water quality parameters. It indicates change in a water system at an early stage. The more pure the water is, the lower the electrical conductivity (think for example, about distilled water). On the other hand, the more "dirty" the water is, the higher the electrical conductivity (salt-water).
