Smartvatten Index combines water consumption and leak statistics to provide a performance indicator for your properties.
The index takes into account both water consumption and the presence of water leaks in various property types.It provides a numerical score that reflects the water efficiency and the management of leaks in these properties, with 10 representing poor efficiency and 90 indicating excellent efficiency and leak management.

Property Type Classification:
Properties are categorized by type using the BREEAM standard.
For each property type group, a median reference consumption per square meter (m²) is determined.
Consumption above or below this median value affects the Index proportionally.
The median reference values also consider statistics of average consumption, such as 120 liters per person per day in residential houses.
For every detected water leak, one point is subtracted from the Index.
Additional points are subtracted based on the duration of the leak, indicating that longer-lasting leaks have a greater negative impact on the Index.
The Smartvatten Index is represented on a scale ranging from 10 to 90, where 10 is the lowest and 90 is the highest possible score.
