The science of Sutro: The Smart Water Monitor

A quick map of the Sutro system

Tracing the journey of a drop of water in the Sutro

The drop(s) of water are pulled into the floating monitor

Small amounts of reagents are then dosed

  • pH — phenol red (the red color that you’d usually use to measure pH)
  • Free chlorine — DPD1A and DPD1B
  • Alkalinity — Total alkalinity indicator and super light sulfuric acid reactant

Then, an array of colors is measured

Flying across, the data gets sent to the hub

From the hub, up and to the cloud it goes!
