The Flume App in combination with the Flume Water Sensor notifies you of water leaks and lets you look at your water usage in realtime.
Ever had a low flow leak that damages your house for weeks until someone notices? The Flume System will notify you of potential leaks within hours.
Track your water usage.
Monitor in real-time how much water your house & irrigation are using. Compare your water usage to others that have similar households. Set budgets to help control how much water gets used and receive notifications when you are approaching your limits.
Anyone can install the Flume Water Sensor, no need to hire a plumber. The Flume Water Sensor simply straps around your existing water meter. The Flume App will walk you through the simple installation process.
Advanced Leak Detection
There is a new toggle for "advanced low flow leak detection" - when this is on it will filter out likely irrigation events from leak detection. So for example if you have a rule set to trigger if water is running for 2hrs, but your irrigation runs for 3hrs the rule will no longer trigger. .
Notification Subscription Update
For each subscription type (push/email/text) you can now individually turn on/off leak/budget subscriptions.
Added on-boarding quick tour to the end of installation. This helps users understand the features of the app. This is accessible via the settings menu at all times.
- Fixed iPad issue that would crash the app when taking the meter image.
- Fixed iOS 13 issue that prevented users from connecting the Flume Bridge to Wifi
- Fixed devices connecting bug during installation
Ratings and Reviews
Non Invasive Detection
I purchased this device several weeks ago and it has saved me a lot of money. I installed the device over the meter as described and proceeded to calibrate. After about 30 minutes I received a notification that I had a leak. I assumed I messed up the calibration. I checked that all water usage had stopped, then recalibrated. Thirty minutes later another leak notification. I then walked the perimeter of the house and sure enough I saw an unusual pool of water on the side of the house. I dug it up to be sure there was nothing there. To my surprise I found a pipe which had a leak. Amazing.... My water bill subsequently arrived and it was more than $400 over our normal baseline. Without this device I expect it would have taken several more weeks to discover.
Thanks for an amazing and seamless product. The only thing that I would love to see is support for HomeKit going forward.
Great Money Saver... It pays for Itself!
I installed my Flume water sensor about half a year ago. The installation process was super easy, and didn't take much time. I am impressed with how accurate the device is! The data showed me that most of my water usage was from 5-6am, which is when my irrigation system runs. After I learned this I focused my efforts on ensuring that I wasn't overwatering my landscape. I made some changes to my irrigation schedule, and since then my water bill has been much lower!
The sensor is extremely accurate. The mobile app let's you drill down into data about your water use, like the exact time a toilet was flushed.
I also like the feature in the mobile app that shows your water usage compared to similar households. It makes me a lot more conscious of the amount of water I use.
Did Not Expect To Be Blown Away
I expected to have the Flume Water Meter & App just be another gadget in my home automation toolkit but it has completely blown me away.
My water meter pit is a good 100 feet from my stand alone back house and it has no problems communicating to its receiver. Installation was beyond simple and everything needed came with the device. Even the tool to open up the pit.
I even get notifications when it is disconnected from my WiFi (Frontier internet is horrible) and I use that disconnection data to show my service provider how inconsistent their service is and got them to come out to rewire the ancient box on the side of my house.
I also found out that my sprinkler system had a pretty serious leak and it was accounting for 30-50% of my daily water usage! I never would have noticed this otherwise. I was even able to look at the data and pinpoint exactly where in the sprinkler cycle the leak was occurring! The device will pay for itself within the year due to the savings from that.
I do get leak notifications when using a little water for small sporadic periods like washing off camping equipment but I was able to tweak the leak alert settings to fit my water usage and it’s been great ever since.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
