Rainbow Municipal Water District (RMWD) has spent the past few years exploring various ways to provide our ratepayers with better time-of-use water usage information. The challenge was to find a cost-effective way to provide our ratepayers with access to this type of data. We believe we have found a viable solution. During the course of our investigations, we learned of a simple monitoring device that was compatible with our existing metering system.
This device measures the amount of water flowing through the meter on a minute-by-minute basis. It is simple to install, providing you have a local Wi-Fi network and only takes approximately 10 to 15 minutes to complete. Furthermore, not only does it record usage data, it monitors this usage according to alerts you establish for yourself, including low level leak detection, high volume leak detection, etc. These alerts are sent directly to your smart phone in the form of a text message. In fact, you can use your smart phone to check and monitor your actual water usage, just like your solar system monitor, should you have one.
