Adjustable Valve Testimonials
Creation of An Idea:
City “water” contains air and water
Water meters do not distinguish between volumes of water and air
Air volume and cavitation may be reduced by variable back pressure
We bought the original patent US Patent #8,707,981
We have built a Second Generation Adjustable SmartValve
It may easily adjusted on-site, in-situ with no operational interruption
The AdjustABLE Advantage
The 2nd Generation Smart Water Valve is externally adjustable. Once installed it can be quickly and easily adjusted without ever needing to turn off the water to remove the device.
Consistently better performance
The Smart Water Valve now has a wide range of effect settings - from ‘zero effect’ to ‘maximum effect’ and all points in between. Once the water is turned back on the valve may be adjusted to the perfect setting for the system. This eliminates guesswork in calibrating a valve BEFORE installation.
Ability to adjust to changes
Greater flow Rates
In the future, if the system pressure or flow rate changes up or down the Smart Water Valve can be quickly and easily adjusted to maintain maximum savings without the need to interrupt service.
Older valves are often designed to slide inside the pipe in flanged versions, or they are typically male threaded in threaded pipe sizes. This results in a significantly smaller interior diameter than the existing pipe, which therefore lowers your maximum flow rate. The 2nd generation Smart Water Valve is either double flanged (3-inch and larger) or female threaded (2-inch and smaller) – giving a larger interior diameter with no loss in flow capacity.
Facility managers and other personnel come and go. A new facility manager might not know about or be able to easily locate a valve that is installed inside a pipe. Because the 2nd Generation Smart Water Valve is double flanged and clearly marked, it will always be highly visible and easy to locate.
The new adjustable design works under the same principles as the original design and is made with the same high-quality materials and precision manufacturing. This innovative new adjustable design is covered by the same NSF 61 and NSF 372 certifications.

In Summary, How the Smart Water Valve Works
The Smart Valve air compression benefit works on all single jet, multi jet, and turbine category positive displacement meters. These make up over 99% of all water meters in use.
The science is based upon Boyle’s Law regarding gas pressure and volume and Le Chatelier’s Principal of volumetric dynamics. The Smart Water Valve is installed in your water line on your side of the meter. The variable spring loaded plunger maintains a constant pressure on the incoming water supply. This ‘backpressure’ manifests itself into a high pressure point on the other side of the water meter. When air reaches this pressure point, the entrained or suspended air becomes compressed and no longer maintains its volume. It passes through the water meter in this compressed state until after it passes through the Smart Water Valve and soon returns to its original uncompressed state. The Smart Water Valve does NOT remove the air, it just compresses it so the water meter can’t measure it.
A common example of “entrained” or suspended gasses is shaking up a soda bottle. The Smart Water Valve is like the bottle cap keeping the system pressurized. The gasses are in there but you can’t see them until you remove the cap, and neither can your water meter. You won’t notice any difference in the water coming into your facility, but you will notice that your water meter is now spinning less.
Pressure And Flow Stabilization
Other ways in which water meters can be inaccurate are during very high, low flow or pressure surges. Water meters are designed to be accurate within a specific flow range. If the flow exceeds this range it can ‘over-spin’ causing your readings to be inflated. An example is when your water is off then something is opened, this creates an initial surge then a pressure drop. These surges and drops can also be caused by variability in the municipal water supply.
The Smart Water Valve proprietary spring loaded technology acts as a ‘shock absorber’, eliminating these peaks and valleys and creating a smooth, even flow that keeps your meter readings accurate and protects against damage that can occur from a surge.
Any time you insert anything into a water line it will act as a flow restrictor to some extent. The Smart Water Valve creates a minimal amount of flow restriction that will save the user additional money in non-volumetric water uses such as showers, sinks, hoses and the like. This can also be used to convert an entire facility to a water conservation low-flow profile without the need to install individual flow regulators or replace older fixtures.
Furthermore, almost all water devices are designed for approximately 65 psi water supply. A higher psi can cause excessive water use and leakage at seals and gaskets that often goes undetected. In these cases a pressure reducer is typically used to maintain a 60-65 psi to the facility. Unfortunately these devices require maintenance and often fail. The Smart Water Valve acts as a pressure reducer in high-PSI water systems, eliminating the problems caused by excessive water pressure.
By virtue of its design the Smart Water Valve act as a secondary back flow preventer to protect the municipal water supply. This is becoming more and more important as municipalities seek to better protect our water reserves from contamination.
Adjustable Flow Management Advice can be adjusted in-situ without removing the valve.
