With 95% of properties having a Burglar/ fire alarm. Surprisingly less than 1.5% of properties have a water alarm system and an even less % of these can actually conserve water. Interestingly a property is 3x more likely to be damaged by a plumbing leak than by burglary. This would lead to a fundamental question as to why is there such a low number of water alarm systems worldwide, especially in the Real estate sector.
The answer is simple: for water monitoring in the real estate sector to be fit for purpose, it must add value to the end user in terms of water conservation with a clear ROI along with protecting your asset against the damage caused by plumbing leaks.
As part of your sustainability goals, improving water efficiency will also reduce your carbon footprint and demonstrate greater social responsibility. This can do a great deal for improving your reputation as a landlord/building owner.
