Water Flow Monitoring
Understand and manage water use.
You know you use a lot of water. But how, and where? With water rates rising exponentially, you can’t afford to not know. Banyan Water’s Flow Monitoring solutions, the Banyan Water Bracelet™ and Irrigation Insight™, deliver real-time water intelligence to help clients understand and more effectively manage water use.
Most property and building managers only find out how much water is used 60 days later, when the bill arrives. Our Flow Monitoring solutions help you estimate water costs in advance. Then dashboards let you know – in real time – when your consumption is outpacing your expected use. The system also detects and alerts you of any leaks or other spikes in use. And when you need to audit or validate utility readings, the system acts as a “shadow meter” to compare to the water company’s meter – but with much higher data granularity.
Banyan Water Bracelet™
The Banyan Water Bracelet is a water flow meter that provides real-time intelligence to control indoor water use and cost with no water main pipe cutting or service disruption. This non-invasive approach provides flexibility to monitor water use at whatever location best achieves the system insight to drive efficiency efforts on your property.
System leaks are responsible for a significant portion of irrigation water waste, so we designed Irrigation Insight to address exactly this efficiency opportunity. Our flow monitoring solution tracks water use in your irrigation system in real time and alerts you to any leaks or anomalies. Through Banyan Water Central, our web platform, you can react to alerts by shutting off the water to your irrigation system to avoid further water waste or property damage until the system is repaired. Irrigation Insight is designed to work with any irrigation control solution and can help you avoid big surprises when your water bill arrives.
