I have some exciting news!!! Helix Water District has a NEW Rebate Program (that I implemented of course, we got $10,000 from Metropolitan Water District for a pilot study, for both Helix Water Customers and Sweetwater Authority Customers)! https://hwd.com/helix-launches-smart-leak-detector-rebate-program/
In February I got a Flume System (can buy it on Amazon), a Smart Leak Detector, and I personally installed it on my meter and it is amazing! I can read my water usage real time on my phone and on my computer (wifi from house to meter), I get notified if I have a leak (water running over two hours (ie. irrigation line leaking, kids leave the bathroom sink on) and/or above 5 gallons per minute).
So, YES, finally, there are these new cutting edge technology devices for the water wonky residential user who wants to know their water usage or when there is a leak or business user to install on their own! Since, Helix customers do not have Automatic Meter Infrastructure installed and you don’t know how much water you used till you get your bill 2 months later, (system would have cost millions), you can do this on your own and we have a REBATE ($100) to make it more affordable, devices run from $200 and up! Some you can have an automatic shut off, but will need to be installed by a plumber, see flyer for the different types.
Remember this is a pilot and we only have 100 $100 rebates to start, so, if you are interested, get yours now!
