Quizmaster Dipping on Intelligent Water Systems

In an article recently published in Construction Executive magazine, ESD Technical Director for Plumbing Engineering James Dipping explores ways to maximize the benefits of intelligent water systems.

In “Pop Quiz: How to Get the Most Out of an Intelligent Water System,” Dipping explains how the use of water management plans can mitigate health and safety risks and help avoid potential lawsuits for negligence. Here are the questions Dipping addresses:

  • It’s all about conserving water, right? (Spoiler alert—it’s not!)
  • How does an intelligent water system reduce the risk of pathogens?
  • Why can’t I just crank up the temperature (to make water safer)?
  • What are the economic benefits?

Dipping concludes, “For a water management program to succeed, there should be a comprehensive strategic plan and vision in place.” He says understanding current water uses and systems allow building owners 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.
