Smart Water Management for Healthcare
Medical and healthcare facilities by nature are large water users. Between sanitation, cooling towers, irrigation systems and in-building water fixtures, there's quite a bit to consider. WaterSignal takes the hassle out of water management for healthcare facilities with our smart water monitoring solution.
Featuring remote access and a customized dashboard, WaterSignal allows users to see an in-depth view of campus water usage data on an hourly, daily, and monthly basis.
One of the biggest advantages of installing a water meter monitoring device is being able to catch instances of excessive water usage in real time. WaterSignal’s leak detection alerts via email and SMS empower facility staff to address issues immediately, as opposed to waiting to discover them later on after receiving an outrageous water bill.
Toilets & Fixtures
Toilets and fixtures tend to be the most common culprit implicated in water leak situations. A running toilet can waste up to 2,000 gallons per hour! Without a real time water monitoring solution, costly toilet and fixture leaks can easily fly under the radar and quickly add up, especially in larger and mixed-use buildings. WaterSignal provides analytics for average gallons per day and goes even further by providing a look at overnight usage for slower moving leaks.
With WaterSignal, users are able to monitor the make-up and blowdown meters of the cooling tower and provide an inside look at the efficiencies. This remote monitoring capability eliminates the tedious day-day operations of the on-site team by removing the manual process of reading these meters. By monitoring the cooling towers, you are able to proactively monitor for leaks, mitigate water loss and water damage, and justify evaporations credits with the local municipality.
According to the EPA WaterSense program, some experts estimate that 50% of water used for irrigation is wasted due to evaporation, wind, or runoff caused by inefficient irrigation methods and systems. WaterSignal monitors water usage at the meter on an hourly basis to note trends and spikes that may indicate a leak, such as abnormally high usage outside of irrigation schedules.
