about arden town apartments

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.


result: 26% reduction in water use in 1 month

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.

 

Water use monitoring graph shows before and after leak was detectedFlowie’s real-time water use data made it easier for Bitwise Properties to resolve the leak faster and reduce water costs.


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.
