The technology will help the group measure water in real time to detect leaks and conserve water
To help detect leaks, conserve water and assist with California’s water mandate, Jones and Jones Management Group, one of the state’s largest apartment management companies with more than 2,900 units in Central Los Angeles, the San Fernando Valley and East Ventura County, selected WaterSignal to install the real-time water monitoring system for seven of their multi-family properties.
The eXact iDip photometer with Bluetooth Smart technology is the first handheld photometer that pairs directly with a smart phone/tablet. It allows the ability to test more than 40 water quality parameters through a simple four-step process. Two-way wireless communication with Bluetooth Smart (4.0) allows for instantaneous software updates and upgrades, market versatility and customization.
HI5000 Series advanced research-grade benchtop meters have a color LCD, capacitive touch keys and a USB port for computer connectivity. The user interface is adaptable, allowing users to display various measurement modes, real-time graphing and GLP data. Additional features include custom calibration options and buffers, three types of data logging, programmable alarm limits and a contextual help key.
The eXact iDip smart photometer is ideal for accurate, lab-caliber water quality testing. This photometer provides two-way wireless connection (via Bluetooth smart wireless technology) with the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, as well as Android-based devices. It reduces onsite test time, increases accuracy and enhances the customer experience through real-time mobile sharing of results.
HI2002 pH/ORP, HI2003 EC/TDS/Salinity and HI2004 DO edge meters are full-featured yet affordable. Each unit is thin and lightweight, measuring ½ in. thick and weighing 9 oz. The versatile design allows them to be used like benchtop or portable meters, which can attach to a wall to free up valuable bench space in a laboratory. All meters use digital smart electrodes that feature a built-in microchip that stores sensor type, identification and calibration information that is automatically retrieved by the meter when the electrode is plugged in.
Chem-Feed C-1500N diaphragm metering injector pumps have a permanently lubricated gear motor for smooth, quiet performance. The valve body and fittings are constructed of chemical resistant PVDF. Valves have FKM static seals and TFE/P ball seat O-rings. The diaphragm is made of PTFE-coated EP. The design allows for a minimum stroke length of 5%. Time is adjustable from 5% to 100% of the repeating 5-second time interval, which results in precise, high-frequency injections. The pump is NSF, ETL, CSA and CE listed.
FCL Series sensors use amperometric measurement technology to provide accurate monitoring of free chlorine in process applications. The sensors are compliant with U.S. EPA method 334.0 for measuring drinking water. Models are available to cover 0- to 2-ppm, 0- to 5-ppm and 0- to 10-ppm ranges. The sensors’ membrane design features a mesh reinforcement clamp for stability and durability. The integral 4-20 mA isolated signal output is enhanced to eliminate ground loop errors, reduce noise and block high-voltage transient surges.
The Halo refillable glass pH probe comes with Bluetooth technology, allowing it to transmit measurement data directly to an iPad with its accompanying Hanna Lab App. This free application turns an iPad into a full-featured pH meter when paired with the wireless probe.
AWWA CEO David LaFrance thanks water professionals nationwide for keeping water safe for drinking
Dec. 16, 2014, marked the 40th anniversary of the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), which today includes regulations for more than 90 contaminants. American Water Works Assn. (AWWA) CEO David LaFrance issued the following statement to mark the occasion.
The device uses sound waves to measure water levels
Imagine turning on your faucet only to find there is no water flowing. Your well has run dry, and you have to pay tens of thousands of dollars to fix it. That is the scary scenario for communities grappling with drought, and it is a potential danger for the 43 million Americans nationwide (15% of the population) on well water.
