The Benefits of Real Time Water Monitoring for Senior Living Communities

senior livingBe it an assisted or active senior living community, rest assured, water plays an integral role in daily operations. In addition to water fountains, restrooms, showers, and kitchen facilities, senior living communities require water for sanitation and sterilization. Without access to real time water data, a catastrophic or slow moving leak can easily remain undetected, resulting in unexplainable water bill increases.

Similar to how senior living communities provide comprehensive care for the elderly, WaterSignal works as an automated caretaker for your facility by monitoring the well-being of your plumbing system in real time. If a leak occurs, WaterSignal will instantly alert property managers via text message and email, ensuring a timely resolution. WaterSignal can also detect slow moving leaks caused by faulty equipment to reduce consumption and save money.

Real Savings with WaterSignal

Holiday Toilet Malfunction

A senior living facility located in Atlanta, GA installed WaterSignal for the purpose of monitoring their domestic and irrigation water meters. On December 30th, WaterSignal alerted property managers to steadily climbing usage on the main domestic.

Working with WaterSignal data analysts, managers at the property were able to quickly track down the source of the leak, discovered to be numerous toilet flappers stuck in the open position. This is common in senior living facilities as many residents are hard-of-hearing and unable to hear their toilet running continuously.

Had the toilet malfunctions gone undetected, the property would have continued to use 250,000 gallons over the property’s weekly average; wasting $1,750/week.

Catastrophic Irrigation Leak

A senior living community located in Dunwoody, GA installed WaterSignal for the purpose of monitoring their irrigation meter. At 4am on August 7th, the hourly alert level was exceeded, immediately alerting key personnel via text message and email. Property managers were able to quickly shut off the system, and track the excessive usage to a leak on the irrigation water line. Had the irrigation leak gone undetected, the property would have continued to use almost 550,000 gallons over the property’s weekly average; wasting $9,750/week.
