Up to 40% of homes experience undetected water leaks and related damage. When left undetected, leaks can waste thousands of gallons of water and cause thousands of dollars in damage. Flume’s Smart Home Water Monitor tracks water use via a mobile app and can be set to send notifications if it detects leaks or excess water use. 70% of new Flume customers find a leak, which can save homeowners from costly repairs and water bills.
According to the Texas Water Development Board, between 50% and 80% of water consumption is used outside the home. Studies done by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Agency show that more than half of landscape irrigation water is wasted due to overwatering, inefficient watering practices and broken or poorly maintained irrigation systems. Flume’s Water Monitor tracks your entire property’s water usage and provides you with detailed insights into your irrigation usage. With Flume, you’ll see how much water you’re using and when – so you’ll know exactly where you can save water.
With simple self-installation, most people can install the Flume device in less than 15 minutes. Cutting pipes, or hiring a plumber, is not required. Once installed, the device will track water usage and provide the information to help customers conserve water, save money, and protect homes from costly leaks.
Flume gives you the power to:
- Track water usage down to the minute
- Receive alerts when leaks and excess water uses are detected
- Set customizable water budgets
- Monitor monthly water use and eliminate surprise water bills.
