  1. Timothy Hogan

    Simple to install on the hot water tank. Downloaded the app to my computer and cell phone. After 2 days of install I decided to check on the bluebot app that I had downloaded on to my cell phone and it was showing me an extremely high usage of water. After further investigation I found a waterline under the house going to an external water faucet leaking. What a great product!! I’m going to recommend this product to all my friends!

  2. David J. Gale

    Installation is quite simple/straightforward. Performance and accuracy are better than advertised and the APP is very user friendly with data displays informative. I live in a water constrained area of Wyoming and tracking water usage is essential to conserving water and maintaining quality of life. This product delivers on these critical requirements. Some early issues with data capture and display have been corrected….working with the customer service representatives has been the most professional and forwarding leaning experience I’ve had as a consumer. I strongly recommend this product. It exceeds expectations.

    I have two wells on 20 acres and on one well went dry and the other dropped to lest than 0.5 GPM. It will be nearly two months until a well driller can be on site to help me out with a new well. I bought two of the Blue Bots to monitor flow from my well to the holding tanks and one to monitor flow to the two houses we have and19 different zones of landscaping and vegetable garden. We used the Bots to determine GPM for each zone and keep track of the tank farm fill rate. We were able to find a number of excess watering durations that pointed to a few broken drip pipes and a few zones that were being overwatered. After fixing the broken stuff and adjusting the overwatered zones we were able to reduce our overall daily GPM by nearly 37%. Not enough to matchup with our meager well output but it gave us the ability to reduce and schedule water truck deliveries more accurately.I also bought this cloud based tank level sensor from these folks to keep tabs on my water storage without taking a trip to the tank farm. PTLevel – ParemTechThe unit is extremely easy to install and the app does almost everything you want. They are supposed to be developing a web access to the cloud data and release it soon, which will be a blessing because the text in the app is small and difficult to read and I would prefer to use a larger screen.I did send them two support tickets with questions about configuring statistics, but never heard from them… Eventually figured it out myself

     As property manager for a 30k sf estate, it’s my job to help monitor water efficiency. We came across Bluebot after receiving an astronomical water bill due to a water leak that went undetected for several weeks. We tried another water monitor company but due to the size and scope of the property, it wasn’t sufficient for our needs. Enter Bluebot, Austin & Nicole! Our challenges were two fold: monitor the irrigation main and the house separately AND getting a strong WiFi connection. After a few attempts initially to connect the irrigation Bluebot, Austin realized we needed to extend our WiFi and update our network. The app let us connect but it kept dropping. Once the WiFi issues were updated, we were in business for monitoring the irrigation main. The monitor for the house was a bit more challenging, as we have a 3″ pipe and Bluebot didn’t have that size as a standard option. I think these guys like a challenge, so they custom made a 3″ for our purposes! How’s that for customer service? Now we can “see” the water in real time and better able to monitor for any potential leaks, as well as help us conserve where we can.Since Bluebot is a local business in our area, Austin and Nicole came onsite to help us get started in October 2021. It took a few months more to get the WiFi expanded for the second Bluebot that we needed to monitor the house. Here we are February 2022 and Austin showed up with the 3″ Bluebot and got us going!! Nicole and Austin were so gracious with their time and showing us how the app worked and what we could do to customize it for our needs. Patience was key, and they rock. What’s great about the app is that the primary account holder can share the monitoring with others, which I recommend only as needed.Overall, I’ve been sharing with family, friends and co-workers the benefits of using Bluebot. I also showed the landscaper the app so he can see how the live feature works and understands how the Bluebot monitors the water. Granted the property I manage is quite substantial, but for the average home user you would easily be able to set this up and get started. But if you did need to call customer service, you’ll get knowledgeable techs on the other end. For those who manage larger properties, you’ll be glad you invested in a piece of equipment that could potentially help save money and property. Anyone who has to pay a water bill, especially in California, would benefit from a Bluebot.

    I purchased two bluebot’s—one for my 1” PVC irrigation main and the other for my 1.5” copper house main line. I like that one unit can fit many pipe sizes and types. Installation was as simple as clipping to the outside of the pipe. I have never seen anything like this meter, works great. I adjusted my irrigation times as I was overwatering. The app sends me a text message if water has been running for 10min or more. My son was taking 20min showers every day, I shared the app with him and he has cut his showers to 5min.

    I had some trouble getting this installed correctly and then there were some software issues in the beginning which the staff resolved very quickly; highly recommend this as a solution to monitoring your water usage realtime and leak detection. Most importantly, the customer support and tech support is extremely responsive which is rare in any industry…the owners/founders obviously understand the importance of customer service from the start; i could recommend product solely on this fact.

  7. Phil M

    I have this connected to the main water line and it seems to be as accurate as my water bill so that is a step in the right direction.I bought this mainly to alert me when I accidentally leave the water running (bad hearing sometimes keeps me from hearing that the faucet is running). I tested it and sure enough I got my alert.So / Suoer Satisfied Customer here.

    We got this to monitor water usage for multiple tenants in a mixed office/industrial building. We had one hiccup with the app up front, but support called us back within five minutes to get it sorted out. Device installation was a breeze from there, with clear instructions and good data. Whole process took five minutes per device. The data feed back to the app is near real-time, with a delay of only about 1 second between turning on a faucet and seeing the spike in the app!I really wish more IoT/smart/Internet-ready devices were like this. It’s clearly focused more on the core tech (measuring water flow) and doesn’t replace quality with cheap gimmicks. You absolutely get what you pay for with this!

    I had a little trouble with setup. The company actually modified the software for my phone (iphone SE). Follow-up phone support was as good as it could possibly be. I’m up and running now and run around flushing toilets just to watch the software work!
