Wastage of water in the current scenario, merely due to overflowing tanks, which is not affordable. Conventional water tanks can neither monitor nor control the water level in tank, leading to large amount of water wastage. Some other technologies had certain drawbacks in some or the other way. The need of removal of these short-comings and providing an efficient and economical solution has been the main focus of this project. Our project is for water level monitoring as well as controlling with IOT and android application. The IOT platform we are using is Arduino which is an open source. The water level in the water tank is divided into maximum, minimum and nominal levels indicated by different colours for each. An HC-SR04 ultrasonic sensor is placed on the surface of the tank to sense the water level and the distance from water level to the sensor is measured and sent to the android application through Arduino. We can monitor the tank manually using an on/off button provided in the android application. The android application has a user interface which displays the tank layout, a button for manual operation and an LED for indicating the motor status.
