Does your business make a profit? Now there is no excuse for not installing a Smart Valve!

Does your business make a profit? Then Uncle Sam would like to buy you a Smart Valve! According to the latest tax code, the Smart Valve qualifies for full depreciation in the year of purchase (consult your tax advisor). How does this work? Updated Section 179 Tax Deductions for Businesses The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017increased the Section 179 benefit for businesses that buy assets and start using them. Effective January 1, 2018, businesses can immediately deduct up to $1 million for qualifying purchases of capital property, with a limit of $2.5 million. After 2018, the limits are indexed to inflation. Businesses can now also take this deduction for nonresidential real property (buildings), including: • roofs • fire, alarm and security systems, and • HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) systems. What are Section 179 Deductions?  Section 179 of the IRS Code was enacted to help small businesses by allowing them to take a depreciation deduction for certain assets (capital expenditures) in one year, rather than depreciating them over a longer period of time. Taking a deduction on an asset in its first year is called a “Section 179 deduction.” You can see that there is a benefit to taking the full deduction for the cost of the item immediately, rather than being required to spread out the deduction over the item’s useful life. For example, if you buy a computer or other office equipment for your office, under Section 179 you can deduct the full cost of that computer in one year. This also makes sense, because we all know that computers have a short lifetime or useful life. Now there is no excuse for not installing a Smart Valve!

SmartValve: Independent engineering study confirms…

Independent engineering study confirms nominal additional energy usage by booster pumps in combination with the Smart Valve.

A large Canadian property owner, who was showing great savings with the Smart Valve, became concerned that the valve would cause additional energy usage by their booster pumps. So they commissioned a study by an outside engineering company which determined the annual additional energy cost was only $77, while the Smart Valve is saving them tens of thousands of dollars annually.

The externally adjustable Smart Valve will save you as much as 30% or more on your water and sewer bill without any impact to water delivery in the facility. Contact us or your local distributor for more information.

Welcome to the SMART VALVE™ Calibration Training video.

SMART VALVE™ is a patented, precision engineered MONEY and WATER SAVING device for your water system. This simple, yet extremely effective variable flow management device solves a number of problems inherent in your water system that are causing you to overpay for your water.

Flow Dynamics is not only the INDUSTRY LEADER in flow management technology, we INVENTED it! Since being awarded the original technology patent in 2014, others have tried to imitate but nobody has been able to duplicate the success of the Smart Valve.

Now, we have changed the game again. We are pleased to introduce the world’s first and only EXTERNALLY ADJUSTABLE flow management device! Our patent pending NEXT GENERATION Smart Valve solves all the problems inherent in our original and other copy-cat designs…problems some people won’t tell you about until it’s too late. Please read on to learn why this is a GIANT LEAP forward in technology with 2nd Generation Smart Valve Advantages and why older designs are now obsolete.

In this age of rising water costs and increasing water conservation and SUSTAINABILITY efforts, it is more important than ever for you be sure you are not using more, or paying more for your water than you should.

This is a MUST read; Water Wastewater Escalation Rate Study

Clearly, we are in a new age of water resource management and water conservation. And that’s a good thing.

However, an ironic side effect of reducing water consumption is that it becomes a contributing factor to rising water rates! That’s because the amount of money a water municipality charges its customers is based on the cost of operating the system, regardless of how much water is actually consumed. They use consumption as the measure so that customers pay their ‘fair share’ of the system cost, but the system operating costs themselves are largely fixed and don’t vary much with consumption.

So, while reducing consumption is important because it preserves our precious water resource, it doesn’t reduce the operating costs of running the system. So, if the costs stay the same (or more likely go up over time), but the consumption goes down, what happens? Obviously, the amount collected per gallon must go up to make up for the shortfall.

This may only be one contributing factor, but it is clear that significantly rising water rates are what we are seeing almost everywhere, as can be seen in this report by the US Department of Energy. It shows a national average increase of 40% in water rates and 24% in wastewater rates over the past 8 years! This trend will only continue and even accelerate in many places.

How can we combat this? There are only two options: you can further reduce consumption, or you can pay less for the water you are using. That is where Smart Valve comes in!

The Smart Valve is a flow management device that will reduce your water bill by improving water meter accuracy so that you pay less for the same amount of water usage. In many cases it can also help reduce water consumption. Typical savings reported by customers is between 15-30%.

The 2nd generation Smart Valve is the world’s first and only externally adjustable device of its kind. This allows the valve to be perfectly calibrated to the water system AFTER installation for maximum results, and allows adjustments to be made in the future without any interruption of your water delivery.

TRC Management Co. 2nd Generation Smart Valve Install – apartment complex, Jersey City, NJ.

  sv_trc_post_images TRC Management Co. has reported results from a recent installation of the 2nd Generation Smart Valve in a mid-rise apartment complex in Jersey City, NJ. Having successfully installed several valves (original design) over the past 3 years, the savings results from the new installation were very impressive, showing a reduction in average water metering from 3,750 gallons per day to 3,075 for an 18% reduction over the initial 3 months of monitoring. As an historically 100% occupied apartment complex, this property has extremely consistent water consumption from month to month, so the effect of the Smart Valve is easily measured. The dollar savings will be significant since the sewer charges are also based on the water meter reading and are 140% of charges for water. What makes the results even more impressive is the fact that the building has low city water pressure. The adjustability of the new Smart Valve permitted it to be installed in the building without causing any tenant complaints about the water pressure. The Smart Valve is a flow management device that will reduce your water bill by improving water meter accuracy so that you pay less for the same amount of water usage. In many cases it can also help reduce water consumption. Typical savings is between 15-30%. The 2nd generation Smart Valve is the world’s first and only externally adjustable device of its kind.
