Abstract: Tanks are used to store water in households. Tamil Nadu faces a 40% water deficit currently. In which water tank overflow occupies 11% in this deficit. When we turn on the motor, we are not aware of the water level present in the tank, we only realize after the tank overflows. Due to these incidences water is being wasted in large quantities every day in India. When there is an overflow of water from the tank algae is formed on the roof tops and also around the tanks, which when unnoticed degrades the tank material along with the building. Water leaks into the house through the damaged roof tops. The objective of the paper is to develop an efficient method to measure water level in a Sintex tank.
