Automation Technology for Effective Building Water Management

Historically, premise plumbing systems have been designed, installed, and operated without the ability to quickly and easily monitor their operation making effective building water management time consuming and difficult. In this presentation, we review the impact of common building water issues, principles of effective water management, and how emerging automation technology supports key water management objectives, including fundamental legionella control strategies, improved user experience, and plumbing system optimization.

Learning Objectives

List common building water issues impacting water safety and efficiency.

Explain key water management principles for minimizing risk associated with premise plumbing.

Identify emerging technology available to support effective building water management.

Describe how emerging technology supports key water management objectives: user satisfaction, water and energy optimization, and drinking water hygiene.
