MASTER CONTROL APP INSTRUCTIONS

Introduction

The Aqueduct Setup app is a mobile application that allows you to view and modify the settings and behaviour of your Well Water Cooler.

Supported devices:

You can install the Aqueduct Setup app on mobile devices that have either the iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod) or Android (mobile phones and tablets) operating systems. Set up takes 5 minutes and once done you have complete control on all your coolers via Bluetooth from your mobile or other devices.

How it works

The Aqueduct Setup mobile app communicates with your Well Water cooler using Bluetooth technology.

When the app is launched, it will automatically begin scanning for nearby Bluetooth-enabled devices, in order to detect the cooler.

Once the app detects your cooler (it does so by your turning the cooler off for 3 seconds, and on again), you instruct the app to connect (via Bluetooth) with your cooler.

You can then use the app to view and modify settings, to calibrate the cooler weighing scales and to order water boxes.

How to get The Aqueduct Setup mobile app

Open your mobile device (phone or tablet).

Depending on your mobile device, open

Apple’s App Store app, or

Google’s Play Store app.

If the search field is not immediately visible, tap the Search icon.

Enter Aqueduct Setup in the search field.

Select Aqueduct Setup app from the search results.

Follow the standard installation procedure.

Bluetooth Location Permission Settings

The Aqueduct Setup app uses Bluetooth to communicate with the cooler.

When the app is launched, it will automatically begin scanning for nearby Bluetooth enabled devices, in order to detect the cooler (make sure you have turned the respective cooler that you are trying to pair with off for 3 seconds, and on again).

iOS and Android mobile apps must ask permission to use Bluetooth functions – you must allow this permission.

So, the first time you open the app, after installing it, you will be prompted to grant the app access to your device’s location.

The options provided are:

  • Allow While Using App / While using the app: If you select this option, your device will remember your selection, and will not have to prompt you again every time the app is re-opened – Pick this option.
  • Allow Once / Only this time: If you select this option, the app will prompt you to grant access every time you open the app.
  • Don’t allow: If you select this option, the app will not be able to communicate with your Well Water cooler.

Note: If you select “Don’t allow”, the app will not prompt you to grant access again, not even the next time the app is opened. In this case, you will have to manually set the Bluetooth location permission access setting in your mobile device

You can change your device’s Bluetooth permissions as follows:

  • For iOS: Settings > Privacy > Bluetooth > Aqueduct Setup.
  • For Android: Settings > Location > App access to location > Aqueduct Setup.

Using the Aqueduct Setup App

Opening the Aqueduct Setup App

Tap the Aqueduct Setup app icon on your phone to open the app.

When the app is launched, it will automatically begin scanning for nearby Bluetooth enabled devices, in order to detect the cooler.

To enable the app to detect the cooler, turn the cooler’s power switch off (for 3 seconds) and then back on.

When the app detects the Well Water device it will display its name on the screen.

To begin using the app with your Well Water cooler, tap on the cooler name (“Well Water”).

The Aqueduct Setup app will then open its System Page, allowing you to view and modify settings, and to navigate other app pages.

Navigating the Well Water app

The user can navigate between any of the three app pages using the navigation buttons at the bottom of the screen.

The three app pages are:

Energy: View and modify the coolers energy saving settings.

Take advantage of the cooler’s energy saving features by programming which days of the week the cooler is in use, and the time of day that it is in use. SLEEP Mode saves energy and money and does our bit for the planet!

Weight: Calibrate the cooler’s weighing scales and view the cooler’s estimated water content.

Calibrating the weighing scales enables the cooler to automatically estimate and display the current amount of water. It informs you when the water level has reached pre-set reorder limits and this page also provides a link to the Well Water website, for ordering more water.

System: View and modify the cooler’s settings.

Access the cooler’s general settings, including the cooler’s display mode and the cooling fan speed/noise control setting. For example, if ultra-quiet is required in Board room the fan speed can be turned right down.

When the app is launched, it will initially open on the System page.

Note: When you are finished using the app, either close the app or select the DISCONNECT option (available at the bottom of each page), to end the Bluetooth communications between your device and the cooler.

App Page: System

Allows the user to view and modify the cooler’s settings.

General Settings | Enable the Cooler

Use this slider switch to Enable / Disable the cooler.

When the switch is to the right (on/green), the cooler is Enabled:

When the switch is to the left (off), the cooler is Disabled. The cooler will not control the water temperature, and the LED display will be off:

General Settings | Cooler error indication

Use this slider switch to Enable / Disable error notification on cooler display.

When the switch is to the right (on/green), error indications are Enabled. An error code will be displayed on the cooler’s LED display if an error condition exists:

When the switch is to the left (off), error indications are Disabled:

Temperature Settings | Set water temperature

View and modify the Water Cooler Target Temperature.

This is the target temperature that the cooler will attempt to cool the water to.

Temperature Settings | Cooler temperature display

This setting allows the user to specify which temperature is displayed on the cooler’s LED display.

  • Water temperature: The cooler LED display will display the current temperature of the water.
  • Target temperature: The cooler display will display the Water Cooler Target Temperature.

Note: Target temperature is the factory pre-set, and the temperature setting that we recommend.

Fan speed / noise control

Adjust this slider control setting to modify the speed of the cooler’s cooling fan.

The sliding control can be set between 0% (low) and 100% (full on).

Moving the slider control to the left will:

  • Reduce the cooling fan speed.
  • Reduce the fan noise.
  • Reduce the cooler’s rate of cooling.

Moving the slider control to the right will:

  • Increase the cooling fan speed.
  • Increase the fan noise.
  • Increase the cooler’s rate of cooling.

App Page: Energy

The settings on this page allow the user to take advantage of the cooler’s energy saving features, by letting the user specify when the cooler should automatically switch itself on or off during the week.

Day Saving

Select which days of the week the cooler is to be turned on.

Tap on an individual day button to toggle that day’s setting:

  • The ‘On” days are displayed with blue text and a light blue background.
  • The “Off” days are displayed with grey text and a white background.

In this example, the cooler is set to be ON (enabled) every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday:

Time Saving

Define the duration of time that the cooler is on each day.

Use the two time-picker controls to define the “Start” and “End” times.

For each of the “On” days selected in the Day Saving section, the cooler will turn on (start cooling) at the “Start” time and turn off (stop cooling) at the “End” time.

The “Start” time-picker control is on the left.

The “End” time-picker control is on the right.

In this example, the cooler is set ON (enabled) between 7:15 am and 5:45 pm each (enabled)day:

Combining these two settings, this example shows that the cooler will be ON (enabled) between 7:15 am and 5:45 pm every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. The cooler will be OFF (disabled) for the entire day every Monday, Thursday and Sunday:

If you wish the cooler to remain on for the entire day (for each enabled day), set both times to 0:00:

App Page: Weight

The app’s Weight page allows the user to view the cooler’s current estimate of its water contents, to calibrate the cooler’s weighing scales, and to order water boxes from The Well Water website.

Water Boxes Image

The water boxes image displays the cooler’s estimate of its water content (number of water boxes).

Order Water

To order more Well Water boxes, select the ORDER WATER button.

Your device’s web browser will then bring you to the Well Water e-commerce website: www.thewellwater.com/shop

Calibrating the Cooler

In order for the cooler to estimate the amount of boxed water it contains at any time, the cooler’s weigh scales must first be calibrated. Calibrating the scales is a two-step process.

  • First, zero the scales (with all water boxes removed), so that the cooler can record its digital weight reading for zero boxes of water – see Step 1 below.
  • Then calibrate (with one water box), so that the cooler can record its record weight reading with one box of water – see Step 2 below.

Once the cooler’s weighing scales are calibrated, you may place further water boxes in the cooler.

Step 1: Zero

To zero the cooler weighing scales, first, remove all water boxes from the inside the cooler, so that there is no weight on the cooler’s scales.

Then select the ZERO button.

The cooler’s weighing scales will then be zeroed, by recording its digital weight reading for zero boxes of water.

Step 2: Calibrate

To calibrate the weighing scales, place one water box on the weighing scales.

Then select the CALIBRATE button.

The cooler’s weighing scales will then be calibrated, by recording its digital weight reading for one box of water.
