Turbidity sensors are similar to turbidity meters in a lot of ways. These tools will both use optics to their advantage. However, one of the great advantages of turbidity sensors is the simple fact that it is possible to truly test the turbidity of an entire water source using them.
Water quality monitoring professionals and scientists will just need to position the turbidity sensors in the water source and they will be able to make progress when it comes to getting an accurate read on the turbidity of the water.
One of the other advantages of turbidity sensors is that they can be used to get a sense of the turbidity of a water source over time. With the repetitive and constant measurements that people will get with these sensors, it will be that much easier for people to be able to genuinely assess the water quality in an area.
