Anyone tried these at master water meter properties?

Looks interesting Sid. Rated well. Just not sure if it would last long enough to pay for itself in water savings... --24.20.xxx.xxx

Why would you pay for a device to tell you something you can find out for free?

Do you suspect a leak in a toilet? check the tank's water level and notice if the fill valve comes up every so often to re-fill the tank.

Do you suspect a leak somewhere else? check the main meter, it has a spinning red triangle, which should not move when all faucets are off. --99.59.x.xxx

Fred (don't know if you'll be back here, but just in case)....

I'm looking at a place with master water meters. The goal would be to have a device on each toilet to alert the tenant if there is a problem. As you're aware, a leaking toilet can waste a lot of water, so this would be more for the tenant's benefit. If I were to buy this property, I would install in-line water use meters on toilet supply lines so I could easily identify if someone is allowing the water to be wasted. The nice thing about these devices is they make loud sounds/flashing lights to alert someone if there are problems. Eliminates the "I didn't hear the toilet running" excuse. We would go over the process of how the meter and device works at lease signing, to ensure everyone knows what's supposed to happen when/if leaks are found.

Device failure would not be an excuse, however. Water wasted is water wasted. Probably have something like X-gallons per month included in the rent. More than X = back-bill for utility waste. We're allowed to sub-meter and bill here. Others, maybe not.

So ultimately, this device would be a courtesy to my tenants. --173.20.xxx.xxx

Does it have a removable battery? Like smoke detectors can tenant "shut it up" however i do see some benefits in tenant training ! --99.203.xx.xxx
