Abstract

One of the most common natural disasters that hit our country is flood. Many lives have perished in this hazardous natural disaster. Early precaution and safety measures can be taken if in anyway the people can be warn about the incoming flood. Most of those who died in these floods are not aware about the water accumulating outside their house and when they finally realize about the situation, it is too late for them to do anything. The purpose of this study is to develop a portable water alarm detector that can be used at home to detect the level of water outside the house. Extensive simulations using software were performed and the solution to the flood problem is proposed. Evaluation is based on the needs of the user, the cost of production, the portability of the alarm and the types of output that can be used to warn the user about the flood. Researches done on the water alarm shows that a portable type is more convenient for the users rather than a permanent placed water alarm because the users can know about the status of the level of water from anywhere inside the house. It was found that basic features for a water alarm such as sensors, buzzer alarm and LCD to display the water level with the usage of batteries is the best method. This method showed significant improvement in safety, reliability and user friendliness of the alarm compared to the other alternative methods. The findings suggest that the water alarm should be easy to maintain, easy to use and the most importantly can warn the users.
