The main purpose of this paper is to demonstrate the savings and economics of using an automated watering system within households. The paper will argue about a device capable of optimizing water consumption allowing water reuse. Device will be automated and will use an electric and mechanical system to redirect water to different reservoirs. System will make use of a wide diversity of sensors such as temperature, presence, and volume. Since project is being developed under Mexican investigators, this system is focused in Mexican values. Due to savings made on water bill it is expected to also have a monetary saving, making it a win-win to humans and the environment. It is important to resemble that all calculation within this article were made to solve the Mexican water scarcity problem, particularly in the City of Aguascalientes, but can also be replicated to any location. The city of Aguascalientes has water scarcity problems. Because of this an analysis was made in order to preserve this natural and vital resource as much as possible. © 2018 IMEKO-International Measurement Federation Secretariat. All rights reserved.
