Today's water usage

In this section, you can quickly see how much water you have used today. You can also see how today's water usage compares to your rolling 10-day average. This icon will be green if you are using less than your average usage, and it will be red if you are using more. If you are a Flume Insight member, you can also see minute-by-minute usage by the hour clicking on the hour you would like to view.

Water Status

Your Dashboard will show you if your water is running or not. If you’re a Flume Insight member, the water status icon will also show what rate the water is flowing. Be aware that this information is delayed up to 1 minute, and does not reflect what is happening in real-time. Also, you must refresh the page in order for this water status indicator to update. To refresh the page, simply pull the page down to refresh.

Last 24hr Usage

On the graph, you can see how much water you used in each of the last 24 hours (in 1-hour increments).

You can move the graph left and right by simply holding and dragging it. By default, the graph shows your usage broken down by the hour. If you are a Flume Insight member tapping on one of the bars on the graph will show you your usage broken down by the minute for that particular hour.
