It’s been a long time coming…but, ya know, Rome wasn’t built in a day! We’re excited to finally show you what we’ve been working so hard on.

Introducing Detail+

Detail+ offers you a brand new look at your water by showing you how much water the appliances in your home are using! Detail+ allows you to see what percentage of your water use comes from your toilets, showers, dishwashers, water softeners, sprinkler systems, and more. If water comes out of it, you’ll know! With new daily, weekly, and monthly comparisons, you’ll  experience total control over your water use.

New Ways to See Your Water

With Detail+, your water use will now be separated by the individual water appliances in your home! See how much water your shower, toilet, water softener and more use. You’ll also see what percentage of your overall usage each appliance uses, so you’ll know exactly how much of your water bill your irrigation is taking up (cue: a google search for “how to xeriscape”).

New Comparisons, New Insights

In addition to an individual appliance breakdown, you’ll also be able to compare your current water use measure against your past usage. This applies to your individual appliances too, so you can see just how much more water gets used when it’s sports season for the kids. Detail+ comparisons give you the ability to visualize your water use trends so you can figure out the best way to save your money and your water.

How Does It Work?

The Machine Learning Engineering Team at Flume has a dataset of A LOT (like seriously…so many) water usage events and each of the event’s labels. Through a process of advanced machine learning, Flume has used these patterns and many more, to build tools that can figure out what appliance is generating each drop of water!

We’re constantly working on expanding and perfecting our machine learning database. Down the line, we’ll be bringing you even MORE appliances with precise measurements!

Detail+ is only available for Flume Insight subscribers who are currently using a Flume 2 device. To learn more about the many other features Flume Insight offers, or to purchase a Flume 2, please visit


We are very excited to share this project with you and can’t wait to see what you can do with this data!
