Characteristics of the installation
Those responsible for the golf course Real Club Pineda de Sevilla had the suspicion that the sealing of one of the lakes was not right, so it could be losing more water due to seepage.
This represented a loss of water and a high cost on pumps effort to maintain the level of the lake fed irrigation system of the green. On the other hand, there was an unnecessary use of water, which was against the environmental policy of the Club.
To verify this suspicion, a Toscano T500 electromagnetic flowmeter was installed to control the amount of water used in irrigation. Additionally applied a coefficient of evaporation, and thus determine the loss of water corresponding to this effect.
At the end of the study period, and after deducting the water for irrigation and evaporation, it was concluded that indeed there was a problem with the waterproofing of the lake. After reimpermeabilización works, the irrigation and evaporation were re-inspected, showing the effectiveness of such works.
The choice of T500 flowmeter by technicians was done with integrated data logger that allows to store the last 100 records. In addition it was selected a model with the logical drive and distance screen reading for the convenience of the technicians who had to develop the study.
Toscano solution was integrated quickly and economically, and its ease of use and convenience are two advantages added to the installation.
