In today’s world it has become increasingly easy to have a smart home. You can install smart outlets, buy smart appliances, and even invest in a smart thermostat. One place many homeowners overlook when updating their home for the 21st century is their plumbing. Did you know that you can get a smart water meter? Well, you can!

In the past, the only way to detect a plumbing leak was by the increasing stench of water damage or leaking sewage. Then, water sensors were created which helped detect moisture before water damage got out of control. Now, we have smart water meters. Smart water meters can detect leaks within minutes. This type of advanced technology helps to prevent damage and can save you hundreds of dollars in repairs.

There are several different types of smart water meters. Generally speaking, this type of technology can cost more up front, but they pay for themselves over time by allowing you to save on water consumption.


How It Works

Smart water meters are installed directly into your main water line. In order to operate the smart water meter, you will need a strong wireless Internet connection. This will allow you to easily control your water meter and household plumbing.

The smart water meter will conduct daily tests or tests as needed to check for pressure and tiny leaks. If it uncovers a problem, it will send you an alert, giving you ample time to find and fix the issue.

One of the advantages of a smart meter is that it allows you to shut off your home’s water system if a major leak is detected. Burst pipes, which can lead to catastrophic damage if left unchecked in an unoccupied home, are no match for the smart meter. The smart meter can give you the peace of mind you deserve as you travel.

Some water meters can even track your water consumption and show you how much water each fixture and appliance in your home uses. This data can help you learn to conserve more water and reduce your water waste.

If you’re interested in upgrading to a smart water meter, it is best to contact a licensed plumbing professional. They can help determine the best model for your home and install it for you.
