Systems and Methods for Irrigation Monitoring and Leak Detection

Description:

The current systems utilized for monitoring fluid flow and leaks in irrigation systems in residential and commercial buildings is ineffective, which results in missed leaks. These missed leaks can cause substantial damage to property along with a hefty price tag to repair both the water damage and irrigation system. This technology provides a more ideal system for monitoring fluid flow and detecting leaks in above and flow ground irrigation systems. Additionally, the technology requires no power, as it harvests and uses energy from the fluid in the pipes while simultaneously measuring and reporting data that can be analyzed for leak detection and water conservation.
