Your water bill is just the tip of the iceberg.
The total cost of water adds up quickly. Consider sewer charges, leaks, misuse, unplanned downtime, asset destruction, repair, and business disruptions. And don’t forget to add the wasted energy used to heat, cool, and distribute water. Savings opportunities are everywhere.

Measurement points, or nodes, are the foundation of our service. Each node has two components: a hardware device to connect a “smart” water meter to our IoT network and software to give you access to real-time analytics, reporting, and automated alerts. The software subscription renews annually. See Apana Terms of Service for details.
Installation: We help configure the solution and coordinate third-party installation for turnkey ease. If necessary, we can recommend an Apana-certified plumber in your area. You contract directly with the installer, or your staff can do the work. We are not a water meter company, but we do work closely with leading manufacturers to assure compatibility. We can add water meters to the project, or you can purchase them directly.
Service & Support: Apana provides two levels of on-going Service and Support: Basic and Premier. Both are backed by our friendly, knowledgeable staff who have deep solution expertise and understand complex water systems. Download our Service and Support Options for more information.
Quarterly Reviews: Once the solution is installed, our customer success team meets with you each quarter to review key metrics, identify potential issues, and suggest best practices to maximize ROI.
