Lower The Water Bill™ valves are Flow Management Devices that reduces excess Air in the Water Supply Lines to combat the Inefficiency of the Metering Device to provide you the Volume of Water your facility requires. By bringing Efficiency to your Supply and Demand requirements a Lower The Water Bill™ Valve will help reduce your Metered Consumption. The Lower The Water Bill™ Flow Management Device ( FMD ) uses our patented technology to compress air that is entrapped in your water system. This proprietary process will have a positive effect on stabilizing the flow entering your properties water circuit. Essentially Acting as a “Shock Absorber” for incoming spikes of entrapped air caused by ruptures in your water providers circuit. Moderating Current or Seasonal High Water Pressure Conditions providing a truer water usage and measurement. Without any reverse in flow the Lower The Water Bill™ fundamentally acts as a Primary(in residential applications) and a secondary backflow device (in commercial applications) that prevents any reverse flow of water back into the main water system.
Our technology its far beyond any other product in the market and its designed to provide more water by volume. The valve is positioned on the owner’s property near the main water supply or meter regulating the consumption of water for all commercial and residential properties.
Research on water control and back-flow principles have been at the forefront of Lower The Water Bill™ technology and design, concluding in the evolution of several generations of valves which have resulted in a reduction of consumption in the range of 15% to 40% with corresponding reduction in water consumption expenses.
The process of water delivery and consumption has numerous innate factors, which directly influence your water usage and expenses. Water system pressure (PSI) and flow rate (GPM) make up the bulk of these troubles. A water pressure of 65 PSI is the maximum capacity that water fixtures are normally intended to handle. The water pressure usually exceeds this amount. This can potentially causes greater quantities of water forced into your fixtures. This results in greater expenses and causes the malfunctioning of seals and gaskets, such as leaks; since their purpose was to only control 65 PSI.
Water meters are designed to measure not only water volume but air volume as well. Therefore, the less water pressure flowing through the pipes will make the air volume greater. The issue arises due to the fact that water meters cannot distinguish the difference in volume between water and air, which instead the total volume of both is calculated. Another disadvantage in the way that water meters function is that they only are configured to be reliable within a limited flow range and if this is surpassed it will make the meter spin too quickly.
There are noticeable increases and decreases in flow of the water pressure in municipal areas, which eventually trigger malfunctions to water systems and fittings. These differences can dramatically change from very little pressure to high pressure in only moments.

Your water travels through a maze of pipes and fixtures from your water providers distribution system to your facility or home. Through this maze your water will flow through many different size pipes and piping fixtures (elbows, T’s, bypasses, shut off valves, etc.) generating friction or for lack of a better term impedance to the flow. This impedance (Friction) will generate a miniscule amount of air, visually in the form of a bubble. As the water flows through this system it experiences these various extreme conditions that also creates turbulence. Unfortunately, commercial water meters cannot effectively measure turbulent water, so they end up measuring too much and charging you for more than you have actually used.
By placing a Lower The Water Bill™ Valve just downstream of your water meter, it uses this minuscule amount of air in conjunction with its oscillation process to reduce the turbulence by breaking the air into smaller particles. This fragmentation process reduces the turbulence, allowing the water meter reading to be more accurate and correcting your billable consumption resulting in lower utility charges.
