Remote Tank Monitoring
Remote tank monitors work over cellular networks. We put a sending unit on your tank gauge that gets plugged into the transmitter unit.
The monitor checks the tank level multiple times per day, and logs the the tank level. If your tank level is ok nothing happens, and once a week your unit will call in with the last weeks usage.
If the monitor checks, and you tank percentage is below the alarm point it will call in immediately and we can get you on the delivery schedule.
Does this work?
Yep, we've rolled out this system slowly over the last 2 years, we've had issues with less than 1% of the units. On our end we get daily reports for:
- a tank didn't check in when expected
- low battery levels
- open circuits (wire damage)
- possible stuck gauges
Why do I need this over the standard Keep Full Progam?
Our software Keep Full system works for a lot of our customers, but it's based on home heating usage, with no supplemental heat, and year round building occupancy.
It will not work when:
- You have a wood burning stove/other supplemental heat
- You have a pool heater
- You leave for the winter
- You have sporadic usage (seasonal businesses)
- You have a backup generator
- You want keepful on your Second Home
If you haven't used any gas for a month and a half, and then all of a sudden blow through 30% of your tank in 2 days, we'll know about it, and we'll be able to get you on the schedule so you can keep working.
I own my tank can you put a sensor on it?
Short answer is yes, but here is the slightly longer answer: As long as the gauge is user replaceable without having to empty out the tank. Meaning if your gauge has two screws that you can remove, and your gauge dial comes off, your tank can use a remote sensor. If the gauge is not removable from the float assembly, your equipment would require some updating/modification.
