Flowie helped us quantify and resolve the huge leak we had. Every day Flowie is helping us avoid significant water costs.
- Patrick Tully, President, Bitwise Properties
Arden Town is a two-story, garden-style, multifamily community with 81 units in Sacramento, California. Patrick Tully, President of Property Management Firm: Bitwise Properties, installed the Flowie water flow sensor at the apartment to better understand why the water bills were so high.
A few days after installation, minute-by-minute water use data from Flowie showed that the high bills were due to a leak of 576,000 gal/year.
To isolate the cause of the leak, Patrick and his team used a combination of Flowie’s water use data and good old fashioned property management work. He and his team turned various water systems on and off such as the sprinkler system. Then, Patrick viewed Flowie’s data on the Building Insights Dashboard and identified the cause: a leak in the meter vault just past the city service. Bitwise Properties continues to monitor Arden Town with Flowie and has avoided subsequent high water bills due to leaks.
