ABOUT THE STUDY
WaterNow Alliance is conducting a pilot study to characterize the typical water savings – both from leak detection and water conservation behavior – that households experience following installation of a next-generation leak detection device. These devices utilize advanced technology to monitor for abnormal or inconsistent flow that might be an indication of a leak.
Leak alerts are sent through smart phone apps where customers can remotely shutoff water to the home, preventing potentially significant water waste and/or property damage. These apps also encourage conservation by providing real time water consumption data to customers – raising water use awareness and allowing customers to make more informed decisions about how they use water.
WaterNow Alliance, together with its partners, is seeking participants for a random control trial study of next generation leak detection devices. Applications will be accepted till the study is filled. Single-family homeowners in the City of Burlingame, Foster City, Santa Clara, and San Jose Municipal Water System are eligible to apply today!
