Note: Text based on automatic Optical Character Recognition processes. Please use the PDF version for legal matters

Claims:

1 . A method of controlling fluid distribution in a water basin, the method comprising: detecting the presence of a user;

controlling a first valve connected to a water source to fill the basin;

detecting a filled condition and controlling the first valve to stop filling;

if detecting a lower limit of water in the basin while the user is still present, controlling the first valve to fill the basin again; and

if detecting that the user is no longer present, controlling a second valve to drain any remaining water.

2. The method of claim 1 , further comprising determining an amount of water consumed and providing data to a server, service, or app.

3. The method of claim 1 or claim 2, further comprising determining an ID for the user using a short-range communication protocol when the user is present.

4. The method of claim 3, wherein the short range communication protocol is RFID, and is triggered by a proximity sensor that detects the presence of the user.

5. The method of any one of claims 1 to 4, wherein the filled condition and lower limit are detected using conductivity probes in the water basin.

6. A system for controlling fluid distribution in a water basin, comprising:

a control system for operating valves to control water entering and draining the water basin according to claim 1 ;

at least one sensor for determining a presence of a user and an identifier for the user; and

at least one sensor for determining fill levels in the water basin.
