In this case study, we delve into how Legend Property Management overcame challenges with their previous water monitoring system and successfully improved their water management practices using bluebot.
We explore how bluebot’s sub-metering capabilities, flexible installation, and low maintenance requirements empowered Legend Property Management to optimize their operations, substantiate usage accuracy, and achieve significant reductions in water usage.
The Challenge: Reducing inaccurate water usage measurements and high maintenance requirements
Legend Property Management had been utilizing a water monitor that strapped onto their city meter. However, this solution presented several issues. The batteries in the previous system depleted quickly, requiring frequent visits from their maintenance staff to replace batteries and screws. Moreover, the limited compatibility and lack of sub-metering capabilities led to inaccuracies in water usage measurements. As a result, the city notified Legend Property Management of excessive water consumption, creating an urgent need to address the situation.
