Getting smart about plumbing and water management

Case study preview.

With water becoming a scarce resource, there’s a pressing need to reduce overall water consumption. Manufacturers are responding by introducing innovative control and monitoring features to water fixtures that can optimize water consumption in houses and buildings.Manufacturers are required to do the proper testing, based on applicable standards, to confirm that their smart devices still meet the requirements set by regulators or local Authority Having Jurisdiction. Identifying the technical requirements set by relevant standards for innovative products that rely on different technologies—and the proper tests to assess conformity to those requirements—is not a simple task.

This white paper explores how the complexities of smart devices may impact performance and reliability

This white paper covers the following topics:

  • Water shortages and the need to reduce consumption;
  • Smart plumbing devices and new levels of complexity; and
  • Navigating the technical requirements to bring smart devices to market.
