Did you know it will cost an estimated $1 trillion over the next 25 years to upgrade the nation’s water system to run more efficiently? 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 Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) suggests “building owners and operators consider installing a water meter data management system with remote communication capabilities that provides instant feedback on all metered water use in a central location.”
The premier choice for water management is WaterSignal, offering a real time, non-invasive, water monitor that helps property managers, maintenance workers, and owners accurately see their building’s water usage. WaterSignal monitors domestic meters, irrigation systems, and cooling towers for residential, commercial, multifamily, senior living, medical, schools and colleges.
When installed, WaterSignal’s self-contained monitoring device sends out an alert when a leak is detected based on dramatically increased usage. The device also measures water flows in real time by evaluating the pulse of the water meter. This data is then wirelessly fed into a secure dashboard, allowing property managers to view consumption by year, month, day, or hour.
Just a few of the benefits of implementing a WaterSignal monitoring device include:
- Actionable data to improve water efficiency
- LEED certification
- Easy 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.”
