Automating Water Compliance Monitoring

Are you aware of the amount of water, time and money you can save by automating water compliance?

Fire alarm and emergency light testing are mandatory requirements along with legionella compliance.

By installing our specially developed smart building IoT wireless sensors and automating water compliance monitoring, substantial savings in labour and water usage can be made.

Manual Legionella Compliance Wastes Water and Time

Legionella grows if water remains stagnant for a prolonged period. Traditionally to prevent this issue is to regularly flush all water outlets and manually check and record the water temperatures from each outlets.

FM service providers technicians will visit their contracted buildings 4-5 times a month for on-site flushing of all water outlets and once a month to conduct L8-related temperature checks from each individual outlet.

During COVID, when offices were empty, occupiers and their service providers realised that expensive resources were being used to inspect and flush all water outlets.

To put it into context, if a building has a total of 50 hot and cold taps, - which had to be run for 5 minutes each, weekly flushing could take around 4 hours alone. This shows how manual legionella compliance wastes water and time.

An example of how automatic compliance monitoring saves money & carbon

Manual flushing still has to be undertaken at some level, but not so frequently, and say by installing 50 non-invasive IoT temperature sensors both customer and service business can save 23 working days in labour per year. Also water savings will be around 75,000 litres annually.

Our automatic sensor monitoring identifies any pipes that contain stagnant water and need to be flushed. Alerts are set if stagnant or tepid water has sat for too long and needs action. Additionally we can then map the location onto a floor plan, giving service teams with instant access so they can see the location data of non-compliant outlets quickly and easily.

This automatic process:

  • Reduces the amount of labour needed for manual flushing

  • Reduces water usage (as only the pipes that need to be flushed will be)

  • Cuts energy consumption (from wasting heated water)

  • Saves money on energy and water bills

  • Helps maintain Legionella compliance requirements.

In addition to our automatic water compliance monitoring, we have our automatic water leak detection which can be placed anywhere in a building where leaks can occur.

Finally we have a complete water-saving solution that automates toilet leak and overflow detection. With our Lorawan non-invasive Ultrasonic IoT water meters we can identify unusual low water usage in toilets, and with an average of 20% of all toilets leaking, multi-unit properties lose thousands in wasted water each day.
