Water efficiency app

Utilities now have powerful new field tools for water efficiency. By running Neptune's NGO™ app on an Android device, and pairing it with the R900® Belt Clip Transceiver, personnel can quickly analyze data-logging information on the spot -- and present it to customers. Knowing when and how much water they used, customers can adjust their consumption patterns, saving time, money and precious water.

Product video

Val-Matic's "Air Today, Gone Tomorrow" video on its YouTube page demonstrates the importance of using air valves in water and wastewater pipelines. The presence of air in pipelines often raises many questions for operators; however, deaerating the pipeline will safeguard against various air-related problems. The video demonstrates how Val-Matic's Air Release Valve, Air/Vacuum Valve and Combination Air Valve solve such problems. Currently, the valves are used in water and wastewater operations for their ease of maintenance and operations.
