OptiFlow

WeatherTRAK with OptiFlow is a ground breaking solution that helps manage restrictive water windows, keeping things running as close to capacity as possible and delivering water where it’s needed with the time available. Working in conjunction with WeatherTRAK Pro3 controllers and WeatherTRAK Central, OptiFlow is the industry’s first solution to optimize and maximize flow across an entire site from the cloud.


Benefits

  • Reduce your water window times by automatically optimizing flow rates across your site
  • Save valuable time and man-hours with reliable automated water window management
  • Stay in compliance with water restrictions
  • Gain visibility into water usage, budget and site configuration across an entire site
  • Be notified of flow alerts in real time

OptiFlow in Action

OptiFlow Configuration

By providing information about your pipes and stations, OptiFlow will automatically optimize watering schedules.


Optimize Flow

Manual manipulation of start times and duration is possible via a visual representation of each scheduled program.
