We have a water monitoring system, which fits into the Hive Scale system. Why travel hundreds of kilometres to check if the bees need water when you just look at your smartphone, tablet or computer and see how much water they have left.
Typically when large operations need to maintain an essential water supply they use IBC's. And IBC is really like a large hive so the load cell and its supporting structure is beefed up to take the knocks of a one-ton brick in the bush. The Water Scale measures more than 1000 kilos or 1000 litres of water.
