FIKRA-SAVE

Abstract

Our project has as main objective, the control of the use of the water thus allowing a flexibility at the level of the exploitation of the water,

The user will adjust the product by indicating the interval of the temperature of the water that wishes to have in his shower. The water that is not hot enough instead of losing it and mixing it with the wastewater FIKRA-SAVE product automatically deflects it to another pipe for later use according to the need of the user.

FIKRA-SAVE also has a warning system that detects gases, indeed if the amount of gas exceeds a certain threshold an alarm is automatically triggered and cut off water, and if the system will always detect the presence of gas, it sends a message to the family members and to the closest people stating that the user is in danger, it must be saved immediately (but it goes into the improvement of the product later).

all users of gas water heaters

What problem does this idea/product solve or what market need does it serve?

The water heaters are designed to heat the water, their response time varies from one manufacturer to another, that means the time required for the hot water to circulate in the pipes and will reach the user it is an essential factor that the user takes into account when buying such a product. To have hot water in the faucet, the water stored in the pipes must be evacuated so that the response time of the water heater will pass, which will result in the loss of an immensely large amount of water. In the industry this problem is solved using a cascade control, which requires a servo system, but in home use it is not profitable, because of the cost of implementation, where the need to have a control system to manage well and enjoy the water as much as possible, without losing any drop.

Mr AMQRANE Mouad said :« I lost my uncle because of a gas leak in the water heater, unfortunately Chinese brand, indeed a quantity of gas mixed with the water was pumped directly into the shower before it has detected his presence. That's why I thought to implement more in my project an intelligent gas detection and warning system according to the amount of gas detected »
