How to Detect Leaks and Conserve Water

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates that in a single condo residence, leaky faucets can waste up to 10,000 gallons of water annually. In commercial spaces, this loss can ascend to over 1,000 gallons of water per week!  So, the question is, can we monitor this consumption while promoting conservation?  The answer is quite simply, yes, by installing submeters.

Benefits of Submeters

Inefficiencies such as leaks or consumption abnormalities are actually quite easy to spot, yet building owners/operators must first understand how the building presently consumes water.  Submetering systems provide tracking data in real time and current data models illustrate that post installation, a consumption reduction of up to 35% annually is possible. Mapping consumption over time helps achieve your reduction objectives without wasted effort.
