Grundfos SCALA1 brings intuitive water boosting to Malaysian homes through intelligent pump control

An all-in-one booster solution designed to achieve convenience and customised control over home water system right from the smartphone

Grundfos has announced the launch of SCALA1 in Malaysia. The water booster pump offers intelligent connectivity that allows control over home water systems right from the smartphone.

With 77.2% of Malaysians currently living in urban areas, and digitalisation becoming a prevalent part of everyday life, urban homeowners are increasingly attracted to smart homes, which are integrated with digital solution capable of anticipating and meeting their needs. These solutions will also enable them to control their smart home ecosystems remotely from anywhere with an Internet connection.

The new SCALA1 offers seamless connectivity. The latest addition to Grundfos’ SCALA range of fully integrated water booster pumps, SCALA1 is a compact all-in-one solution that is deigned for pressure boosting in domestic and light commercial applications, such as garden irrigation or pressure boosting in one- and two-family houses and apartments.

In line with the SCALA range which achieves optimal pressure boosting for water on demand through intelligent pump control, SCALA1 is an all-in-one unit, integrating pump, motor, diaphragm tank, pressure and flow sensor, dry-running protection, controller, and non-return valve.

SCALA1 comes with a built-in two-way communication system, allowing users to track their water system anytime when in range. The Bluetooth-enabled solution allows users to monitor, control, and schedule water use from their smartphone with the intuitive Grundfos GO REMOTE app, which is available for both iOS and Android operating systems.

The Grundfos GO REMOTE app alerts the user via a series of alarms that indicate issues such as leakages, dry-run, or when a pump has exceeded its maximum runtime. Users can easily access pump diagnostics, create and e-mail reports onsite from the app. The app also includes a calendar function designed for boosting in homes and gardens.

Giancarlo Roggiolani, regional sales for director domestic building services – APAC and China, Grundfos, said: “Water plays a crucial role in how we enjoy our homes, and yet low or varying water pressure continues to be a disruptive issue for many households. Technology like SCALA1 holds great potential for turning a house into a smart home, through greater connectivity and intuitively responding to our needs.

“The launch of SCALA1 will mean homeowners can control and customise their water supply experience with ease via the app and achieve optimal pressure boosting all while conserving energy and water without sacrificing comfort or convenience.”
