Eric Adler is the CEO and founder of Flume, a smart device that wraps around your water meter and detects leaks and water usage across your entire property - inside and out. He was studying chemical engineering in hopes of designing a product that would have a positive environmental impact.

Flume is a purpose-driven business that came about because in 2014, California was experiencing its worst drought in 1,200 years. Officials encouraged ways to reduce consumption, but no one really knew how much water they were using.

Eric designed Flume when he was a grad student at Cal Poly to provide a better way to share high-definition water data with people and the communities they live in. Now, Flume puts the power of water consumption and conservation in consumer’s hands, protecting their home, and improving their relationship with our most precious resource.
