Atlanta-based company installed 260 systems in 2015
David Taylor, senior vice president of Atlanta-based WaterSignal, has announced that the company installed 260 systems in 2015, a 170% increase over the previous year. While sales have been strong on the company’s home turf—Georgia, Florida and Texas—the company realized growth in states such as California, which has a 25% water reduction mandate; Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and Washington D.C. Collectively, WaterSignal has over 950 systems installed in 19 states.
“From commercial buildings to multi-family apartments to large college campuses, property and facility directors share a common frustration: high water usage and costs with little technology available to change the status quo,” states Taylor.
“From a wireless device on a water meter, our systems read water flow in real-time and send the data to an easy to use dashboard for the facility manager to measure, compare against other buildings and even analyze use down to the hour. As a result, managers save approximately 14%. With water rates rising, our system essentially pays for itself in six to eight months.”
In addition to real-time data, the WaterSignal system features instant alerts in the event of a major leak, much like an energy surge popping a circuit breaker. The alert can be sent to both a computer and smartphone, and can be customized for business hours as well as after hours and weekends.
“We look forward to continuing our expansion to provide building and property owners a solution that not only saves them water, but can greatly reduce their costs in the process,” says Taylor.
