Water Services NZ working in partnership with TagIt Technologies has installed the Halo Water Monitoring Systems (Halo) on the farms of many of our clients.
Water Services NZ has installed Halo at Tau Ke, Tau Ke Farming Ltd, on Poihipi Road, just North of Taupo.
Tau Ke Farming Ltd, wanted to manage their water system and environmental resource better, to have more efficient use of their farm water and to reduce unnecessary waste.
Water Services NZ installed Halo at Tau Ke in the beginning of 2019. Halo provides information electronically to monitor the water flows in the water system. The information is transported to your electronic device so that you can monitor your water system remotely. Halo has alerts that indicate a change to the usual water flow patterns in the water system and the location of the alert. This information has helped farm management act faster to find and fix leaks.
The information recorded by Halo, gives farm management a detailed analysis of the use of water in their system, identifies any pressure points, and can help in being more efficient in the delivery of water when needed. This information is stored digitally, to enable farm management to refer and correlate measurements with current data input.
Water Services NZ technicians have been trained how to interpret the Halo reports and help with any issues the farms have with implementing Halo. Water Services NZ together with TagIt Technologies offers backup support and service to help keep Halo running smoothly.
Water Services NZ has recently installed Halo, on Rangitaiki Station, one of the Pamu Farms of New Zealand.
Rangitaiki Station is a large–scale intensive farming operation. The watering system is extensive and complex and has many different features. It has multiple submersibles and surface pumps, using generator and mains power.
Due to the size of Rangitaiki station, if there is a leak in the water system it can take time for water lines and reservoirs to dry up and the leak to be found, and still more time for the system to refill once the leak has been fixed.
Installing Halo will mean that the water system can be monitored and allow for better management of the water system and the ability to keep up to stock demand.
Water Services NZ specialise in the design and installation of all types of Halo monitoring systems. This super easy-to-use technology makes life a whole lot easier when dealing with water/effluent/ milking systems, which gives great peace of mind by identifying any issues before it’s too late and from the comfort of your own home too!!
From single water meter monitoring to full farm system monitoring Halo has it all, you don’t need to be a computer or phone wiz to use the Halo monitoring system, the dashboard is super easy to use.
Here are some key points of the benefits of installing a Halo System:
• Water Take Control/ Council Data Collection/ Consent
