How It Works
Property owners will have peace of mind, as the two devices work together to monitor and detect irrigation system leaks to avoid water waste and subsequent property damage. Rain Bird’s Smart controllers automatically adjust watering schedules based on weather conditions to reduce overwatering. The new partnership will link Rain Bird’s controllers with Flume’s water monitor systems, allowing property owners to quantify the savings generated by using Rain Bird’s Smart controller features. The combined system will also measure water usage by irrigation zone to enable the user to adjust irrigation needs more accurately. These features will be available to the homeowner via each company’s mobile app.
Most homeowners have 5/8" or 3/4" water meters. Flume can detect flow rates between 0.01 and 0.03 gallons per minute (GPM) or roughly one gallon per hour (GPH). That’s precise enough to catch a drippy faucet.
Larger 1" and 1 1/2" water meters, Flume can detect flow rates between 0.02 and 0.07 gallons per minute (GPM). That is still low enough to catch even the smallest of leaks.
Flume water monitor includes sensor with attachment straps, WiFi Bridge with power cord, meter lid tool and gloves.
