LAS VEGAS (KXNT) - It's being advertised as a groundbreaking simple-to-use household device that's set to save Southern Nevada residents on their water bills, thanks to a generous rebate provided in partnership with the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA).

The innovative Flume Home Water Sensor now costs just $99.50 for local residents who redeem the exclusive rebate, which represents a 50 percent savings off the $199 retail price.

"Flume is a game changer for anyone who cares about the cost of their water consumption," said Joe Fazio, Flume's VP of Business Development. "You no longer have to wait for your water bill to know where you stand, and you no longer have to worry about leaks going undetected," Fazio added.

Flume is a first-of-its-kind device that puts the power of daily water use monitoring into the hands of homeowners. Flume allows homeowners to (1) accurately track their daily water use both inside the house and across the outdoor irrigation systems; (2) detect small unknown leaks before they inflate water bills and cause damage; and (3) receive real-time alerts on suspicious water activities while away from home.

Flume's water data is delivered to users via a free companion app available on Apple iOS and Android devices. There are no subscription fees to use Flume.

The Flume device is battery powered and simply straps around a property's water meter-no tools are required for installation, which typically takes less than five minutes. Water usage data is then sent from the device to a small included "bridge" that plugs into a household power outlet and wirelessly relays data to the companion app.

The rebate for the Flume Home Water Sensor is now in effect for residents of Las Vegas, Henderson, North Las Vegas, Boulder City, and unincorporated Clark County.

"After launching similar programs in Texas and California with exciting results, we're looking forward to putting our technology in the hands of Southern Nevada residents, so that they, too can save money, gain peace of mind and conserve water," said Eric Adler, CEO of Flume, Incorporated, makers of the Flume Home Water Sensor. "This is a win-win for both residents and the environment," Adler continued.
