Community Well Water Monitoring

Posted Jan 17 2024, 09:32

Does anyone have experience with remote water monitoring for a community well system? We had a tenant updating a log daily to insure we’re don’t have any red flags or spike in usage to help detect any issues, but he’s taking a full time job and can no longer commit to the daily monitoring.

We have a Sensus flow meter that appears to have remote monitoring of options, but there’s not a lot of contacts with experience with the products and it appears to need a lot of other components in-order to access all of its functions.

We could use a whole home remote meter, but I wasn’t sure due to the total usage volume with a 26 home park if that would be an intelligent route or not.

Primary need is remote reading of the water usage.

Thanks for any insights you can provide!

We have a couple different systems we use / have used. Mission Communications and Generating Solutions are the two that we have right now. Not sure about initial install cost but they’re both $750/year or so ongoing cost. We do have them for parks as small as 31 units — installed when  pump houses were upgraded.
