What It Does and How It Works

The H2 Transformer Valveâ„¢ takes long established principals of fluid dynamics and applies them in a new and financially rewarding application.

The Problems with Water

There are a number of potential problems inherent in water delivery and usage that can impact your water consumption and water costs. The majority of these concerns revolve around water system pressure (PSI) and flow rate (GPM).

n Water fixtures in your building are typically designed for water pressure of no more than 65 PSI. The water delivered by your municipality (city) often has much higher pressure. This results in more water being pushed through your fixtures, leaking through seals & gaskets that are designed for 65 PSI and increased maintenance costs.

Along with the volume of water passing through your water meter is a volume of air. The lower the water pressure the more volume the air will have. The problem is that 99% of water meters measure only volume, regardless if that volume is liquid or gas.

n Water meters are designed to be accurate within a specific flow range (GPM). If the flow exceeds this range it can cause the meter to over-spin.

n City water pressure can fluctuate significantly causing surges and pressure drops. This will cause the meter to over-spin and damage water systems & equipment. Surges also occur anytime you go from no flow (static) to flow (dynamic), such as when you turn on and off a hose

Other ways in which water meters can be inaccurate are during very high, low flow or pressure surges. Water meters are designed to be accurate within a specific flow range. If the flow exceeds this range it can ‘over-spin’ causing your readings to be inflated. An example is when your water is off then something is opened, this creates an initial surge then a pressure drop. These surges and drops can also be caused by variability in the municipal water supply.

The H2 Transformer Valve’s™ proprietary spring loaded technology acts as a ‘shock absorber’, eliminating these peaks and valleys and creating a smooth, even flow that keeps your meter readings accurate and protects against damage that can occur from a surge.

Reduced Consumption

Any time you insert anything into a water line it will act as a flow restrictor to some extent. The H2 Transformer Valveâ„¢ creates a minimal amount of flow restriction that will save the user additional money in non-volumetric water uses such as showers, sinks, hoses and the like. This can also be used to convert an entire facility to a water conservation low-flow profile without the need to install individual flow regulators or replace older fixtures.

Furthermore, almost all water devices are designed for approximately 65 psi water supply. A higher psi can cause excessive water use and leakage at seals and gaskets that often goes undetected. In these cases a pressure reducer is typically used to maintain a 60-65 psi to the facility. Unfortunately these devices require maintenance and often fail. The H2 Transformer Valveâ„¢ acts as a pressure reducer in high-PSI water systems, eliminating the problems caused by excessive water pressure.

Other Benefits

By virtue of its design the H2 Transformer Valveâ„¢ act as a secondary back flow preventer to protect the municipal water supply. This is becoming more and more important as municipalities seek to better protect our water reserves from contamination.

The Bottom Line

The H2 Transformer Valveâ„¢ will :

n Keep your water line pressurized at the meter to avoid being charged for air

n Keep your flow rate in the desired range for water meter accuracy

n Reduce excessively high building pressure

n Eliminate over consumption due to high pressure

n Conserve water, especially in facilities and fixtures without flow regulators

n Act as a shock absorber against pressure surges and drops

The H2 Transformer Valveâ„¢ will save you money and water, and it works 24/7/365 with no maintenance needed. All you have to do is set it and forget it. The only difference you will notice will be in your wallet.
