This paper presents a smart water pipeline monitoring system to control the water leakages occurring in it. In day by day life, usage of water is increasing with proportional to increase in wastage of water. So, to overcome from this, a smart monitoring system with the help of Internet of Things (IoT) is designed and proposed. In this system, to monitor the flow of water, the water flow sensor is used in the pipeline and also to measure the contamination of water a turbidity sensor has been used. Flow sensor works on the principle of a hall effect. Nodemcu microcontroller, is one of the most common microcontrollers used for IoT purposes has been used in this system. Main purpose of this microcontroller used is because of its interrupt pins. The values measured by the water flow sensor and turbidity sensor are uploaded to the cloud server. For storing the data in the cloud, the ThingSpeak cloud server has been used for this system, because ThingSpeak cloud server is open and free to use. With the values measured by the water flow sensor the data is displayed in the ThingSpeak cloud webserver. The system has a water flow sensor, a microcontroller to interpret the data for evaluating the leakage content and to store the data in the cloud. So, monitoring of the water flow in the pipeline will be done very easily.
