The TeraValve Water Conservation System is an innovative and proprietary product designed to reduce water consumption and achieve water conservation. The automation and intelligence makes it unlike any other product on the market today. This system is 100% fail safe with an engineered friendly design. The TeraValve System delivers 20 to 35% savings in non-volumetric applications with an overall bill savings of more than 10%.

The TeraValve system is specially designed to maintain PSI at a constant level throughout the distribution system. Flow speed is varied, keeping head pressure constant according to Bernoulli’s equation. As a result of this phenomenon, usage of water for non-volumetric application will be reduced substantially, helping consumers conserve water and reduce costs for both water and sewer usage. The resulting constant pressure levels will also reduce damage to consumer appliances and fittings.
In normal situations where The TeraValve system is not installed, when the water flows to a higher point the elevation head increases while reducing the pressure head.
But since the TeraValve system keeps the pressure head a constant (neglecting losses due to fittings and contractions) as the flow travels to higher elevations, the velocity of the flow reduces. Hence the water usage for non-volumetric applications automatically reduces without the end user noticing.
The consumer may not notice that he/she has used less water since the TeraValve system slows down the flow without compromising the water flow’s characteristics. For the same volume, the time it takes to fill a volume is more when the TeraValve system is installed. (i.e. TeraValve system installed pipe line will take more time to fill up a bucket.)
As the main function of the TeraValve system is to reduce the gallons per minute, it is not necessary to place the valve right after the meter. Since the most substantial saving is through flow reduction, the valve will maximize saved water and sewer cost reductions when placed elsewhere in the system in accordance with the table above.
