Water is the essence of life and so it enables life on the earth. Today, we are living in the world where clean water is increasingly scarce and it needs to be conserved. The water usage has increased tremendously throughout the globe. The amount of water available per head has decreased globally. So, the access to clean drinking water available per capita has gone down. There are various modern and traditional approaches employed to enhance the water management. Reuse of water is an example that has served as an essential water resource management. This research paper focuses on the reuse of the greywater in the houses using an electromechanical system. The proposed work employing a pH sensor and particulate sensor that operates the Electro-mechanical System comprising of Motor and flaps for the diversion of water. The motor facilitates the opening of appropriate flaps in the system. Using the pH sensor and particulate sensor in conjunction with water separation mechanism, considerable amount of water can be saved for other purposes. After sensing of chemical (pH) and the solid particles (particulate sensor), water can be diverted to the sewer line or not, and after passing both the tests, water can be reused. The system with proper positioning of the flaps, operated by the electro-mechanical system can accomplish this separation. The electromechanical system receives its input from the sensors. Precise 90 degrees of rotation of the motor shaft and the linkages to operate the flaps is accomplished by using embedded system. The two flaps which are positioned inside of the Y joint, one opens the recycle tank and the sewage tank. The whole process is analyzed, experimentally tested and modelled from the view point of informatics, simulations and optimized before the final implementation of the work.
