Home Living : July 5th 2011
8 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, July 5, 2011 Water waste all dried up HOMELIVING Top left: The Hibernating House keypad. Above: The keypad in use. A new household water management system is making it possible for homeowners to control their water usage, prevent costly water damage and achieve a greener, more sustainable home. The Hibernating House system not only enables households to monitor water consumption in real time, it protects against unidentified and costly leakages. Designed and developed by husband- and-wife team Karl and Katie Forti, directors of Melbourne-based plumbing business Your Waterworx, the system also allows households to test exactly how much water various appliances use. Mr Forti said he invented the system after identifying a need to prevent property damage and loss of water caused by burst pipes and hoses. ''A burst water pipe left undetected can waste in excess of one litre of water per minute or up to 43,000 litres per month,'' he said. ''With current water rates, this can cost a household in excess of $195 on their quarterly water bill, excluding the cost of any property damage caused.'' According to Insurance Statistics Australia, 8 per cent of total claims in Australia are due to burst pipes, representing more than $284 million in payouts per year. Once installed, Hibernating House performs three core functions to measure and control water consumption in the home: monitoring, diagnostic testing and isolation.
