SDS SYMBiotICenables the remote and autonomous control of any number of stormwater management devices, ensuring they continuously perform at their optimum operational efficiency.

SDS SYMBiotICprovides real time access via a web portal to a comprehensive range of operating data. Customer bespoke data extractions and reporting information feeds can be linked to notifications or alarms, for example via mobile and desk-top, for immediate action as required.

SDS SYMBiotICTM systems deliver key environmental and commercial benefits to the water and construction industry. Ultimately, they help water companies to reduce CSO spillage and pollution, identify and limit leakage and meet supply demand. These systems also support water companies that are adopting SuDS assets to manage the surface water drainage process.

SDS SYMBiotICTM comprises of a control box, sensor, cable and aerial and its equipped devices include SDS Aqua-Swirl® and Aqua-FilterTM stormwater treatment systems, Weholite attenuation tanks and SDS greywater recycling and rainwater harvesting systems.
