How This California Town Utilizes Link2Valves for its Water System

“The other thing I think is really nice is the monthly report you can get sent to you in email format,” Neumann said. “When you have a bunch of different job duties, it is important to get that reminder.”

The app Link2Valves helps to make faster, more intelligent decisions on water system infrastructure. It has an intuitive and user-friendly design, with precise and easy-to-interpret data while maximizing maintenance efficiencies for automatic control valves and other water system assets.

Here to break down Link2Valves on this episode of The Valve Chronicles is Jake Corzine, Western Regional Manager for Cla-Val, and Tim Neumann, the Production Facilities Lead at Mission Springs Water District, which provides, protects, and preserves water in Desert Hot Springs, California, and the surrounding areas. The two talked with Host Tyler Kern about Link2Valves.

Neumann was introduced to Link2Valves when he worked for the City of Redlands and was tasked with monitoring 18 modulating valves, which are the lifeblood of the Redlands system, according to Neumann. There were no maintenance records on the valves, and he inquired that if he was going to do 18 valves, he should also do all the valves in the city.

“They kind of looked and me and said ‘Really?’” Neumann recalled. “It kind of went from there, and I started using Link2Valves as soon as it came out.”

One of his favorite aspects is the geo-location, especially when having new staff, as they can be directed to the valve’s location. It also provides information on the type of valve and its function, which is a significant convenience for Neumann when maintaining the valves.

“The other thing I think is really nice is the monthly report you can get sent to you in email format,” Neumann said. “When you have a bunch of different job duties, it is important to get that reminder.”
