Remote pressure and temperature monitoring for M&H 129 dry barrel hydrants.

Track pressure and temperature changes and get alerts at a moment’s notice via smart hydrant sensors deployed across your water system.


iHydrant® remote sensors for M&H 129 hydrants

Knowing the exact moment your water grid experiences a hydraulic event or is threatened by rapid pressure or temperature fluctuations is now possible via iHydrant® remote sensors for M&H hydrants. iHydrant® operates on a secure IoT network to transmit data to the cloud, which is then accessible on your utility’s hosted dashboard. iHydrant® allows you to monitor precise fluctuations in your water system in real time that reveal money-saving data and help you recapture non-revenue water.

“iHydrant® has been beneficial to the utility by identifying different hydraulic events that impact normal daily operations. This has resulted in lower response times for repairs and a reduction in lost revenue due to water losses. iHydrant® has also helped us to identify hydraulic conditions that are occurring in the distribution system that we were previously unaware of.”

Josh Wedding, City of Redmond Water Utilities Manager

Reduce non-revenue water with up-to-the-second data from your hydrant

iHydrant® is a feature-rich monitoring tool designed to save money through grid analysis, problem prevention and rapid-response mitigation.

  • Real-time, whole system feedback allows you to identify potential problem areas and proactively maintain the system to prevent main breaks before they occur.
  • Rapid alert systems provide notification in response to system changes, reducing utility response times and water losses.
  • Remote monitoring allows for more efficient human resource allocation and job efficiency, further reducing costs associated with the system.
