I would recommend Flowie for any public sector building. It’s affordable. It’s easy to install. The data is extremely accurate and helpful in making sure leak detection goes noticed and you’re building a great database of water consumption.”

-Jessica Kukac, Environmental & Energy Systems Coordinator, Simcoe County District School Board

Flowie has given us the ability to monitor our water consumption down to the minute. This has allowed our Operations, Maintenance, and Facilities staff to be alerted of leaks and running toilets and sinks long before any staff on site even realized there was a problem.”

... and districts

Benchmark water usage across entire school districts to identify inefficiencies and reduce water bills.

in one school district alone…

Water sensors installed at a school district revealed that 6 out of 7 schools had ongoing leaks. Water was also being used 72% of the time, well above the 30% benchmark. After receiving alerts and taking steps to resolve these issues, school administrators were able to achieve ROI for product purchase in just 17 days.
