Vista Irrigation District Smart Leak Detector Rebate 

Vista Irrigation District residential customers are now eligible for a $100 rebate when they purchase a qualifying smart leak detector device.

What is a Smart Leak Detector?

May contain: electronics, mobile phone, cell phone, phone, human, and person
 Monitor your water use from your smartphone.

Smart leak detectors allow you to monitor your home’s water use in real time, 24/7. The detectors sync to a smartphone and alert you if there is high consumption or a leak at your property. This can help you manage your daily water use and protect your home from expensive leaks. There are two types of smart leak detectors: plumbed devices and external devices.

Plumbed Devices
Plumbed devices are plumbed into your existing water lines. Most of these devices can automatically shut the water off at their point of installation, or allow you to shut your water off remotely, in case of a leak. Since these devices tap into your existing plumbing system, a licensed plumber and permit may be required for installation. Plumbed devices are typically more expensive than external devices.

External Devices
External devices attach to the outside of your water  meter or main water pipe, typically with some type of strap, making them simple to install. Since external devices are not directly attached to your plumbing system, they do not have the ability to automatically shut off your water, or allow you to shut off your water remotely, if a leak occurs. External devices are typically less expensive than plumbed devices.
