Tail end problem in water distribution
Solution to Tail end problem through Pressure and Flow Control Valve
It is very common to see, that in a colony or area; plots which are near to the water supply point (UGR- Under Ground Reservoir) get maximum water; whereas plots which are at a distance from water supply point get minimum or no water, during water supply periods. Such problem, in a water distribution network is known as ‘tail-end problem’.
This ‘tail-end problem’ exists everywhere i.e. in every dwelling unit or in a colony or area.
At present, to solve, this problem none of the proven method or technology is available. However, to handle this problem a hit & trial method like reduction in ‘nozzle-sizes’ or water pumping/boosting based on SCADA, a computer based system, is being used.
Present device, has potential to solve ‘tail-end problem’ problem in a very efficient manner. To solve this problem, present device is needed to be installed at the beginning of every distributary line.
Use of present device has following benefits:
If sufficient water pressure is available till a user end, then this device can easily be used to arrest illegal water withdrawal, by using mono-block pumps (by individual consumer) from water lines.
