The Alert Labs Flowie water flow sensor does not interfere or compromise water meter readings. Flowie does not break or damage the meter’s seal. It acts as a passive listener, counting the magnetic ticks on the water meter. Flowie does not contain any magnets and does not impede the water flow data collection by the meter.
We partner with municipalities across North America, including the City of Guelph, Canada’s largest city that uses groundwater. During Flowie’s development, their water authority field-tested the water sensor to diagnose wasted water issues within their community.
If anyone from your municipal water authority has questions about our water flow sensors, we’d be happy to provide them with details about Flowie, including its technical specifications and how it works.
