A recent report developed by the American Water Works Association estimates that it will cost nearly $1 trillion over the next 25 years to upgrade the nation’s water system. While part of the problem is fragile, hundred-year-old water mains, it also falls on property owners to ensure they are doing their part to save water — for both the environment and their wallets. But how? The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) suggests building owners and operators consider installing a water monitoring system with remote communication capabilities that provides instant feedback on all metered water use in a central location.
The premier choice for water monitoring and management is WaterSignal, offering a real time, non-invasive device that allows property managers, maintenance workers, and owners to analyze their building’s water usage from any internet-enabled device. WaterSignal measures water flow in real time by evaluating the pulse of the water meter – be it a main domestic, irrigation or cooling tower. The data is then wirelessly fed into a secure portfolio dashboard, allowing users to view consumption by year, month, day, or hour. In the event of a leak or anomaly, WaterSignal will send an instant alert via text message and/or email, depending on user preference.
Additional benefits provided by a WaterSignal water monitoring device include:
● Actionable data to improve water efficiency
● Simplified facility benchmarking
● Eligibility for evaporation credits
Ultimately, WaterSignal’s device offers proven savings on a building’s water use, and in an average payback period of 90 days.
“We began utilizing WaterSignal to monitor water consumption for our commercial office,” explains Brad Cahill, former Operations Manager of Columbia Property Trust. “Six days and two alerts later, in our eyes the benefit outweighed the cost. The two alerts would have gone unnoticed until the next bill arrived. The cost of peace of mind – priceless.”
Next to air, water is the most essential resource on the planet. Doesn’t it make sense to start saving it today? For more information, contact us today!
