How It’s Done
Determine where water is being used in the facility Examine and analyze all areas of water use Calculate and account for water use Propose site specific measures to reduce water use Information Review Determine savings and provide a cost benefit analysis End Result How Does It Work? BASIC OVERVIEW OF THE STEPS INVOLVED IN A WATER AUDIT Water Audit Water Balance Efficiency Measures
Level I Desk Top Analysis Level II Preliminary Site Audit Level III Detailed Site Analysis Focus of Audit Building use and square footage Demographics Rough estimate of savings No / low cost measures Water consumption by end use More rigorous estimate of savings potential No / low cost and capital measures Detailed analysis of water use by subsystem Investment-grade estimates of savings potential Identify Capital measures Inputs Utility bills Site drawings Aerial imaging Phone Interviews Level I items Identification of water using equipment Measurement of flow rates on domestic equipment Level II items Measurement of all non-domestic equipment As built listing of all water using equipment Outputs Checklists Engineering estimates of savings potential Spreadsheet calculations More complex spreadsheet calculations Computer water models Domestic savings potential based on actual flow measurements Financial evaluation of estimated capital investment and projected savings Detailed construction grade listing of all products. Detail summary report Auditing Levels Provided
Toilet and Urinal China and Valves Any residential or commercial fixture; tank, flush valve, pint-flush, etc. Faucets Common lavatory, kitchen, patient, or laboratory-type fixtures. Showers Traditional, ADA, or gang-style units. Types of Domestic Fixtures Audited

Traditional Methods of Data Recording Walk through site. Write down data. Take pictures Enter data into spreadsheets. Enter data into computer. Re-enter to calculate savings and cost. Write proposal.
WMI’s Method of Data Recording Walk through site. Input data to tablet. Take pictures with tablet. Upload to cloud. Download to calculate. Write proposal.
WMI utilizes the newest technology to streamline the auditing process. Use of tablets and software developed specifically for audits reduces mistakes and increases efficiency. Project-defined data entry. Building and room oriented domestic fixture entry. Fixture specific list of needed data. Drop-down menus for all data inputs. Pictures taken are logged with building and room ID’s. All project data is synced to our server, where it can be downloaded anywhere in easy-to-read Excel spreadsheets. Smarter Auditing Technology
Reducing redundant keying of data from application to application. Reducing the time it takes to get the information from the field to the office. Reducing errors from paper notes to be transcribed and rekeyed. Increasing the ability of field staff to capture graphical representations of buildings and obtaining customer signatures in the field. Allowing bar code scanning of the inventory item used on a job. The Advantages of Tablet Auditing Motorola Xoom with WMI Software
