To say that the world of water quality is diverse is an understatement of some magnitude. It’s much more than simply diverse.  It’s down right complex.

Avoiding the high risk of alarm floods

Too often an alarm is an afterthought – its existence driven by the realisation that somewhere in a process there is something that can go horribly wrong. As more points of possible failure come to light extra alarms are added. The system grows ‘like Topsy’.
