 Water Balance Diagram
 Water Balance Series (this page)
 Water Balance Bar Chart


In this page the user can analyze the evolution of any water balance component along time, for any zone. The water balance components are calculated as explained in the Water Balance Diagram page. This page may be useful to help the user understand:

  • Is my revenue increasing or decreasing in this zone?
  • Is the volume supplied to this zone increasing or decreasing? 
  • Are my losses increasing or decreasing? Why? (real losses or apparent losses problem)
  • How were the volumes for the same period of the previous year?

Time Range

Lets the user select between a time range of "Last year" or "Last 2 years". If data is not available for eth entire period, only those times from which data are available are displayed.


The user can select the zone to graph the time series for. Only one zone can be viewed at a time.

Note: the user can select which components to see in the graph by directly clicking in the respective component legend, below the graph. Repeated clicking can toggle the series on or off. Hovering over any point in the chart with the mouse will display the numerical value for that point.

Most utilities manage their systems based on bigger zones (usually called operational zones or distribution systems), being each operational zone or system composed by several smaller zones (usually called DMA). In WaterSight it is possible to consider these two levels of zones hierarchy, but it is also possible to consider three or more levels of hierarchy (for example a town, that is composed by several distribution systems, being each system composed by several DMA). 

In the example below, it is being considered a bigger zone (Oakville Zone) that is divided in two smaller zones (Oakville Low Zone and Oakville High Zone). In this case, in the zones configuration table inside the administration page, both Oakville Low Zone and Oakville High Zone should have as parent the Oakville Zone. Please note that in this case the sum of the volumes of the two smaller zones should equal the volumes of the bigger zone.
