WaterCompass

Real-time monitoring for leak detection and
water conservation

Comprehensive water management requires an in-depth, real-time understanding of both indoor and outdoor consumption and a way to stop unexpected waste fast. WaterCompass is a non-invasive, clamp-on flow monitor that lets you continuously monitor leaks and water usage of one site or across an entire portfolio from a single dashboard, including domestic water, cooling towers, irrigation systems and water-based fire suppression systems. Our Hydro Analysts keep an eye on anomalies and proactively reach out so you’re fully aware of all issues and have pertinent data at your fingertips. It’s the ideal solution for property managers, facilities engineers and management and sustainability professionals to solve high water use and be warned of leaks.

WaterCompass in Action

WaterCompass Dashboard

Your WaterCompass dashboard provides summary information, including total usage, total cost, and total usage per square foot across a site or a customizable group of sites.


WaterCompass Interactive Analytics

Interactive analytics allow you to dig deeper into the detailed data coming from WaterCompass, including yearly usage fluctuations, weekly or daily usage patterns, and even how typical usage is for a selected day and hour.


Usage Heatmap

A heat map averages usage on an hour-by-hour basis over multiple days providing typical usage during a given time of the week.
