Gauge Maintenance & Training

OneRainTech™ Field Services

Maintenance Services for Real-time Hydrologic Data Collection Networks

Routine, preventative maintenance is key to ensuring that a flood warning network provides accurate, reliable information during a hydrological event. 

Gauge Maintenance ReportAs part of our contracts, we perform preventative, proactive maintenance services as well as predictive maintenance and performance evaluation. Our services include:

Start-up maintenance, electronic testing, field installation, system activation and FCC licensing

Scheduled routine inspections and data analysis

Unscheduled Service Calls

End of Season field equipment maintenance and testing

New installations and radio licensing

In addition, we provide extensive Data Analysis, Reporting, and Performance Assessment. The query-based tools that OneRain uses for this analysis provide insight into battery problems, charging system failures, over-reporting sensors, plugged tipping bucket funnels and other issues.

On-site Maintenance Training - Best Practices

PT installationEven if you perform your own ongoing maintenance, local staff may benefit from a refresher course in best practices; and if you outsource your ongoing maintenance, your staff should be familiar with the network system such that minor or emergency repairs can be accomplished in-house. 

OneRain can provide specialized training to your agency in standard gauge maintenance functions to improve the reliability of your system and to reduce outage times.  We typically schedule two full days of training with your maintenance staff at your facilities. The training will include both in-field and classroom settings to cover the following:

Cleaning, testing, and replacing of power components including batteries, solar panels and charging regulators

Testing and calibration techniques for all sensors

Site visits to “typical” sensors

Instruction on system monitoring for potential problems/failures

Troubleshooting techniques

Overview of sample maintenance logs and criteria for documentation

Assistance in developing year-end report
