How can WaterSmart help?
WaterSmart is a great tool for being able to see your own water usage so that you can:
- Set up alerts!
You can set up WaterSmart to text or email you if your water usage spikes, so that you can be notified - you might have constant consumption.
- Leak repair troubleshooting
While you're troubleshooting leak repairs, you can check to see if a leak has stopped. This is helpful for periods of time when our office is unavailable (after hours, weekends, and holidays).
- Ensure your conservation efforts
Verify whether or not your conservation efforts are making a difference. Since you can see this year's usage versus last year's usage, if you make a change (for example, in your habits or by getting energy efficient appliances) you can see how much it affects your water usage.
- Know your water score
You can see how you compare to other similar properties in Bend. Do you want to know whether you use more or less than other households like yours? Fill out the quick survey and it will tell you what the average water usage is for other properties/households in Bend that are similar to yours.
- Check sprinkler system usage
Make sure you're not over irrigating by checking to see how much water your sprinkler system is using.
