High Flow Leak

This alert will monitor and detect water moving in your system. This is generally a more significant leak when no irrigation is running. If you use this alert, make sure you allow residual water to pass back and forth through your flow meter, which can give false alerts. We recommend setting this between 1-3 GPM.

Slow Leak

This alert monitors if we detect water moving in your system; this is generally a smaller leak, as no irrigation is running. The system looks for the total amount of water movement, within an hour. This measures slow water leaks that occur over a period of one hour, so you can be notified if there was any leaking of "x" amount of water within the last hour.
