It’s the data, stupid!

Thank you to AutomatedBuildings.com for publishing some original Aquanomix content on water and data centers.

Be smart! Read about why it’s tough to manage what you can’t, or don’t, measure here.

Save the drinking water for drinking and not for flushing.

That’s the goal of new legislation that would require many large new buildings in San Francisco to use gray water — waste water from baths, sinks and other kitchen appliances — for toilet flushing and in their irrigation systems.

Check out how Symphony can support not only California’s Title 24, Part 6 Regulation, but also support the city of San Francisco’s new legislation on gray-water use, in a new one-sheet available for viewing here.

The legislation applies to yet-to-be constructed buildings that are 250,000 square feet and larger and in the city’s “purple-pipe” district.

Did you know: at perhaps the greenest building in the state, the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission building is using treated sewage water from about 1,000 employees to flush their toilets and irrigate some of their plants.

Their HQ at 525 Golden Gate consumes 60% less water than similarly sized buildings.

  • One of the first buildings in the nation with onsite treatment of gray and black water
  • An onsite “Living Machine” reclaims and treats all of the building’s wastewater to satisfy 100% of the water demand for the building’s low-flow toilets and urinals
  • The “Living Machine” system treats 5,000 gallons of wastewater per day and reduces per person water consumption from 12 gallons (normal office building) to 5 gallons
  • The building’s 25,000 gallon rainwater harvesting system provides water for irrigation uses around the building.

 

SF Title 24

An Innovative Water + Energy Management Solution in Real-time

It’s never been done before!

But why?

The value in a technology that marries energy and water quality data is powerful. It reveals transparency of operating costs and water quality management at such a granular level. The data supports swift and intelligent decision-making processes, which can save money and improve outcomes in performance.

View our newest one-sheet here.

And don’t forget! Aquanomix Managing Partner Robert M. O’Donnell will be speaking at Data Center World in September. It’s a presentation you won’t want to miss.

Brochure: When it’s life or death – should you really take a chance?

Creating the safest hospital requires maximum transparency of your building’s overall HVAC conditions.

Nearly every facility relies heavily on HVAC systems, but hospitals are vastly different from data centers, and have a different set of specific needs.

Without exception, hospitals cannot endure any shutdowns or interruptions. This applies even during planned maintenance, making proper preparation a vital factor to reducing human errors, equipment failure, and downtime.

Across industries, unplanned downtime at healthcare organizations cost an average of $7,900 a minute per incident, up 41 percent from $5,600 per minute in 2010.*

Reliable, efficient, scalable.

84% of data center managers would rather what?

84% of data center managers would rather walk barefoot over hot coals is than endure data center downtime, but 91% experienced an unplanned outage in the past 24 months, according to an Emerson Power study.

Data Center Downtime Sucks.

Have you checked your cooling system water quality recently? It directly affects how well your system runs.

Approx. 35% of data center downtime are water related.

Downtime sucks. Especially in a data center.

What’s your Nexus Number?

What is risk? – George Costanza

Risk Management 101: Even if George Costanza is in charge of your facility’s risk management, Symphony can support mitigation of critical asset failure and debilitating operational downtime.

You continuously monitor your entire building with real-time data. You monitor everything except your cooling water, correct? Let’s help you change that.

Let us ask you one question. What risk can you afford?

We know water, so you don’t have to. Continuous commissioning and real-time data of one of the most variable parts of your cooling system: water quality.

 

Aquanomix as Top Industry Mind at Smart H2O Summit

Managing Partner Rob O’Donnell will be presenting as one of the top industry minds and key water stewards at the Smart H2O Summit in San Francisco in August. Please join us for a robust roundtable surrounding the challenges of today in water – as well as how our newest technology, Symphony, can support the critical water issues at hand.

Check out the deets here.

Anchored by conference and training programs that offer tracks in Management, Operations & Technical Solutions, the Summit will focus on water and sewer infrastructure, long-term water supply re-use and desalination, financing for capital improvements, the impact of big data on managing this resource, and public understanding of water resources, systems, and services.
