ADTS Beats Projections - Saves Multifamily 9%

In October of 2020, Water Matrix Corporation, Evolve's exclusive multifamily distribution partner in Canada, supplied and installed the Auto DivertingTub Spout System (ADTS) in 65 showers at Minto Groups' Sherwood Apartments located in the Toronto's Yonge and Eglington neighborhood. 

The ADTS units were installed for the purpose of reducing hot water and energy waste associated with the shower warm-up period, leaking tub spout diverters and, inefficient showerhead flow rates. 


AUTO DIVERTING TUB SPOUT SAVINGS PROJECTION

Based on a review of existing shower/tub fixtures and historical water data, Water Matrix estimated water savings would range between 5%-7% for the Sherwood property after installation of the Auto Diverting Tub Spout Systems. Achieving 7% savings would produce the following results:

  • 7% Reduction to Overall Water Use 
  • 180 m3 Saved Per Month
  • 2190 m3 Saved Per Year
  • $8,913.30 CAD Saved Per Year
  • 16.2 Month Projected Water Savings Payback

AUTO DIVERTING TUB SPOUT WATER USE BEFORE INSTALL

During the 30 days prior to installation, the two Sherwood buildings (11 & 25) showed combined water consumption of 2,750,000 Liters per monitoring conducted with Alert Labs Flowie Devices.


AUTO DIVERTING TUB SPOUT WATER USE POST INSTALL

During the 30 days post installation, the two Sherwood buildings (11 & 25) showed combined water consumption of 2,339,000 Liters per monitoring conducted with Alert Labs Flowie Devices.


ADTS REAL-WORLD PERFORMANCE - 28% GREATER SAVINGS THAN PROJECTED

After completion of the installation, Water Matrix reviewed post installation waterdata from Alert Labs Flowie devices to determine the following water savings achievements as a result of installing Evolve's Auto Diverting Tub Spout Systems. Real-world annualized results were:

  • 8.98% Reduction to Overall Water Use
  • 231 m3 Saved Per Month
  • 2810 m3 Saved Per Year
  • $11,438.74 CAD Saved Per Year
  • 12.6 Month Water Savings Payback (@ cost of $185 CAD per unit)
