Intelligent water systems are safer and more efficient for building owners and occupants.

ESD Technical Director for Plumbing Engineering James Dipping explores “The Evolving Role of Intelligent Water Systems” in his article for Contractor magazine. Dipping writes while your first thoughts may go to energy monitoring and HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) controls when considering smart buildings, a growing awareness of intelligent domestic water systems is trending.

Dipping’s article examines trends in water conservation, and increased focus on health and safety, as well as the economic benefits of closer monitoring of water systems. Dipping says for a water management program to succeed, a comprehensive strategic plan and vision should be clearly outlined. He says “Understanding your current water uses and systems allows you to develop a plan for greater water conservation, efficiency, management, and health and safety.”

James Dipping brings more than two decades of experience to his role as technical director, plumbing engineering. He freely shares his knowledge with other industry professionals to further ESD’s mission to improve society through the built environment.
