An analysis of 28 multifamily properties showed that WaterSignal resulted in 14 percent water savings over a 13-month period. Of those properties, WaterSignal saved each property an average of $3,062 per month.

Leak alerts catch issues before they become costly problems

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.

Accurate data collection and reporting shows you the big picture

With WaterSignal, you can access your facility’s water usage data on an hourly, daily, and monthly basis. Metrics include the facility’s average gallons per day, estimated cost per year, and estimated cost per square foot per year. This type of information is vital information for facility benchmarking, and it also lets you evaluate the efficiency of facility-wide water conservation strategies over an extended period of time.

Vying for LEED certification?

If you’re trying to attain LEED status for your green building, evaluating your water practices is one of the first things you should consider. Why? Because water resource efficiency is the third most weighted LEED category. Using WaterSignal can help you benchmark and monitor water usage both indoors and outdoors, as well as determine the efficiency of your cooling towers.
