Water Meter Solutions was started by multi-family housing property owners and entrepreneurs who were tired of getting high water bills due to leaking and running toilets that went unreported by their tenants.
The team began talking with larger multi-family housing property owners and managers. They found that leaking and running toilets presented a large problem to owners and managers of all sizes. They also talked with hotel managers and found that they also had a need for immediate leak detection and an overall interest is guest water usage data.
Unable to find a solution that:
1) provided real-time data
2) didn't require batteries or an external power source
3) didn't require a tenant/guest to self-report a water problem
The team decided to partner with one of the nation's leading hardware design and development firms - Logic PD - to bring these self-powered flow monitors to market.
Water Meter Solutions is in the process of designing and developing the second generation of their solution. This new version will be available in late 2016, early 2017.
