Reactions to Sensor Industries Solution

The speed of leak detection:
“As soon as we installed the gateway and sensors, we started getting alerts of, you know, leaking toilets!”

How the system works in their maintenance department:
“I use the dashboard daily; I check it first thing in the morning to keep track of any leaking toilets.” and “We can keep track of tenants who don’t report leaky toilets.”

Handling leak notifications:
“The first thing I do when I get a notification either via text or email, I call my maintenance guy who is assigned to that building, to go assess the unit. Once we go into the bathroom with the leak, we first make sure it is not leaking outside, make sure the supply line is good. If it’s leaking inside (the toilet), we check the components (the flapper), which is usually the main cause of the leak.”

The dashboard:
“What I like about the dashboard is that obviously it gives me all the data for every single toilet there in the 522 unit building.”

Working with Sensor Industries:
“My overall impression with the Sensor Industries system is that it’s been great. We’ve caught a lot of leaks and we’re managing all of them.”

“What makes the system valuable to my team is number one, we’re saving water. This system has saved the department money, and most importantly, it has saved us water.”
