Catching Water Wastage Early with Smart Metering 02/02/17
Supermarkets tends to use a high volume of water in the summer months. A major cause for this high usage is the use of roof sprinklers. These sprinklers are used to ensure the proper functionality of the refrigeration systems. However there are times when the sensors of these sprinklers fail and this results in constant water usage at a very high flow rate. It is during these times that their investment in a smart metering system truly pays off. A supermarket caught a 10L/min leak through the active monitoring AWARE service and saved $1,600/mth.
