AUSTIN, Texas, April 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Banyan Water, a leader in the emerging field of smart water management, today introduced Irrigation Insight™, a water monitoring system that tracks all irrigation water use on a property and provides alerts if leaks are detected. Irrigation Insight can be instrumental in helping facility managers take control of water use and comply with local or state water restrictions enacted during droughts.
"Our research shows that implementing water restrictions does not always result in reduced consumption, but monitoring water use in real time can make a direct impact by pinpointing leaks immediately to help facilities stay in compliance and avoid waste," said Gillan Taddune, chief executive officer of Banyan Water. "Many areas in Texas have been under water restrictions for years, and our 24/7 water monitoring solutions have saved our clients – in Texas and elsewhere – a significant amount of water while maintaining healthy landscapes."
Irrigation Insight works in conjunction with Banyan Water's next-generation water management platform, Banyan Water Central. Irrigation Insight provides users with water use data, alerts and master valve control immediately after installation, giving Banyan Water clients the ability to remotely shut off water to the system if a leak is detected so no additional water is wasted before it is repaired. Ideal for small- to medium-sized landscapes, the flexible and easy-to-use system is the only solution that provides real-time flow alerts and data with the ability to compare performance across multiple facilities in a portfolio.
Key Features of Irrigation Insight:
- BANYAN WATER CENTRAL - monitors and displays all irrigation water use on properties.
- ALERT CENTER - provides real-time alerts that detect leaks in the irrigation system and watering on restricted days.
- MASTER VALVE CONTROL - allows users to remotely shut off water to their irrigation systems to avoid further water waste or property damage until system is repaired.
- FLEXIBILITY- designed to work with any irrigation control solution.
"The recent water reduction mandated in California is an early indicator of how water management needs to be taken more seriously by other municipalities in the United States," added Taddune. "Banyan Water works with clients to help them maintain their landscapes while simultaneously cutting back on water use. Our smart water management technologies also provide the tools to help property managers improve the bottom line, even as water rates rise. We are continually looking to offer technologically advanced smart water solutions that deliver real results."
Banyan Water is dedicated to being a part of the solution to water scarcity and rising water prices in the United States. The company works with clients to control water costs through smart technology and a comprehensive suite of water management services. Pioneering smart water technology, Banyan Water is the only company of its kind that offers advanced real-time measurement solutions to generate immediate savings on water use.
Drought Management Recommendations for Businesses
Perform a Water Assessment. Review water bills and perform an on-site system inspection to check for leaks and inefficiencies.
Water Sparingly. Make sure your irrigation system adjusts to rainfall and evapotranspiration. For many properties, one watering per week is enough to keep landscapes healthy.
Monitor Continuously. Conduct frequent system inspections to help locate leaks and inefficiencies before wasted water violates water restrictions or costs money.
