Well and Tank Systems, as it can be clearly inferred from their name, are systems used to provide the control between wells and tanks. Tanks mentioned here are surely water tanks.

Nowadays, agriculture and industry are in need of high volumes of water. Trying to meet the need from city’s water supply network, as mostly there is no need for refined water, is pointless from a financial aspect. Most reasonable way to meet the need is using the water directly from natural sources. And wells and tanks are the tools for this method.

Water is withdrawn from natural sources with pumps and kept in tanks in order to be used when needed. Just like every system, this process also contains potential problems and needs. Frequent check-up’s are needed in order to keep the system working stable & efficient and also to identify and eliminate possible issues.


Wells drilled to provide water are mostly located in different places than tanks. Furthermore, a tank can be provided with water from different wells. Or a well can provide water to multiple tanks. At this point, a network that needs to be controlled appears. If this network doesn’t get controlled on a regular basis and necessary actions are taken, it causes cases such as overflowing of tanks or pumps working without sufficient water.

Normally, wells must be in touch with tanks but if the process is being operated from a different HQ, all of the parts must be in touch with the HQ. You can try operating this process with traditional ways, using phonelines between personnel. But this way would weaken your ability to take actions. It would cause delays. On the other hand it requires keeping qualified personnel on all points in the system 7/24. Besides you become vulnerable to man-made errors.


At this point, remote well tank control systems are needed. By getting remote control systems set up at every point on your network, you can constantly monitor everything that happens on every point from a home base. You can stop water flowing by making this data integrated with your automatic control system, by automatically stopping water in pumps considering water levels momentarily or restart pumps and start the flow again when water levels are low.


  • Simplifies your way of water supplying, enables it to be managed with lesser cost.
  • Identifies problems and inconsistencies in the system very quickly. Thus provides immediate responses.
  • Enhances effiency by preventing system to run on no load.
  • As it provides productive work, reduces the risk of malfunction.
  • Helps the enviroment by stopping natural resources from going to waste.


Wireless well and tank control systems are the most common way used in distant communication. Major reasons are wells and tanks usually being in remote places from each other. Even if establishing cable lines between these distances doesn’t seem too hard, maintenances of these lines create serious costs and challenges. In the case of their halting, malfunctioning, or at worst case their being physically damaged; rendering them to a stable state would take time.

As for wireless systems, communication is much more stable. Even if communication devices break down they can be quickly replaced and system can be stabilized.

Wireless well tank systems has two different communication methods.


GSM well control system is being done with devices communicating via GSM technology. Just as we communicate with cellphones. Communication is being done with SIM Cards inserted to devices. In need, these devices call and inform each other about the situation on their location.

They can be used in everywhere with GSM network installed. They can form stable connections and communicate without distance limits. Expenses resultant from GSM operators come into question.


RF well control is provided with devices communicating via radio frequences. To simplify it, it is same as how we listen to a broadcast made from a radio station.

Communications of RF systems are totally free. They communicate with each other like walky talkies. But there is distance restrictions. They can’t send signals to far distances. Further the signal distance get, more expensive they become. Also their communication qualities can be affected by weather conditions and the terrain.
