The Smart Water Valve
The Problem With Water
- It’s a simple fact that along with the volume of water passing through your water meter is a volume of air. The volume of that air will vary as the water pressure fluctuates between static and dynamic pressure. The problem is that over 99% of water meters measure by volume, regardless if that volume is water or air.
- Water meters are designed to be accurate within a specific flow range (GPM). If the flow rate exceeds this range it can cause the meter to measure inaccurately, charging you for more than the actual use.
Pressure & flow Stabilization
Another way in which water meters can be inaccurate is during very high or low flow, or during a pressure surge. Water meters are designed to be accurate within a specific flow range. If the flow exceeds this range it can cause the metering to overread consumption. This is especially true during a surge, such as when there is no water flowing resulting in a higher static pressure, which can create an initial surge when the water line is opened and pressure suddenly drops to the lower dynamic pressure. Surges can also be caused by variability in the municipal water supply.
The SMART WATER VALVE’s™ proprietary variable spring-loaded technology eliminates these peaks and valleys and creating a smooth, even flow that keeps your meter readings more accurate and protects against damage that can occur from a surge.
The Smart Valve™ will:
Keep the water line pressurized at the meter to avoid being charged for air volume
Keep your flow rate in the desired range for additional water meter accuracy
Reduce excessively high-water pressure
Eliminate over consumption due to high pressure
Conserve water, especially in facilities without pressure reducers or flow regulators
Act as a shock absorber against pressure surges and drops
Provide Tremendous ROI Capabilities Through Savings
The Smart Water Valve will save you money and water, and it works unobstructed 24/7/365.
