Water is most important resource which needs to be managed smartly. Managing house water supply in a society consisting of water tanks, motors, and pumps automatically is an important task for efficient consumption of water. In this paper, we propose a smart solution for leakage detection in the tank using its dimensions and sensor data. The data from each house is stored on the cloud for analyzing the water consumption of each house in a society and main water supply, through GSM/GPRS 900a module. A hybrid application, Smart Water Grid, is responsible for monitoring the water level in the tank continuously, to control the motor automatically, and it consists of an inspection mode to detect the leakage in the tank and its dimension.
