Welland Launches $100 Flowie Incentive Program


See original article here.


The City of Welland is taking a smarter approach to assisting consumers with water conservation and leak detection. City Council approved a partnership with Alert Labs to assist Welland residents with the purchase of real-time water sensors. Alert Labs is a unique Ontario based company committed to water conservation through technology.


Welland Residents Get $100 Off Flowie


The City of Welland is offering $100 incentives for residents to purchase a Flowie water sensor. The regular price of Flowie is $395, along with a $95 annual monitoring fee. The first 100 Welland residents to participate in the Flowie Incentive Program can purchase Flowie for $295 and will receive one year of monitoring for free.


Flowie: Water Leak Detector


The Flowie water sensor straps onto residential and commercial water meters. It detects water usage and sends alerts to the customer’s phone when it identifies high or unusual water consumption. The Flowie can also detect silent water leaks, frozen pipes, temperature drops, and high humidity. It also generates detailed water usage reports and continues to work during a power outage.


Floodie: Flood Sensor


For homeowners with flooding or water damage concerns, Flowie has an optional companion sensor, Floodie, that alerts homeowners to the presence of unwanted water. Floodie fits easily under a hot water tank, dishwasher, washing machine, or beside a sump pump to help protect against water damage


Real-Time Water Use Data


“Residential water meters in the City of Welland are currently read and billed quarterly. As a direct consequence, staff’s ability to provide up-to-date consumption data lags up to three months,” said Erik Nickel, Acting General Manager of Infrastructure Services. “A customer’s ability to receive early notification of possible water leaks is not a service the city currently offers customers; however, with the installation of the Flowie, customers can be alerted of leaks immediately.”


Promo Code: WELLAND100


Residents are urged to take advantage of the Flowie Incentive Program and contact Alert Labs directly with inquiries or to purchase the real-time water meter sensor online at www.alertlabs.ca/welland.

Within days of initial implementation, facilities management staff received their first high consumption alert on a Friday evening. Staff quickly responded to investigate that evening and they found grounds watering had been taking place and was mistakenly left on. Without the immediate alert from the device, the water may have been running for hours or even days resulting in wasted water and unnecessary cost.
