Customer Review: App Store User
“This is a product that goes far beyond the other products on the market that measure water usage. As a landlord of three different tenants, I needed to be able to measure water usage without interrupting my tenants. Not only has this product proven to be amazingly accurate but also non-intrusive to my tenants, gives us the ability to print out usage amounts and bill accordingly. Awesome product!!!!”

Customer Review: Akron Energy Systems, Kevin Hohlefelder, Vice President of Sales
