The conventional method of testing water quality is to gather samples of water manually and send to the lab to test and analyze. This method is time consuming, wastage of man power, and not economical. The water quality measuring system that we have implemented checks the quality of water in real time through various sensors (one for each parameter: pH, conductivity, temperature) to measure the quality of water. The ZigBee module in the system transfers data collected by the sensors to the microcontroller wirelessly, and a GSM module transfers wirelessly the data further from the microcontroller to the smart phone/PC. The system also has proximity sensors to alert the officials by sending a message to them via the GSM module in case someone tries to pollute the water body. This system can keep a strict check on the pollution of the water resources and be able to provide an environment for safe drinking water. © 2017 IEEE.
