If you missed our most recent webinar “Water Loss Audit is done…What can I do with the information?” be sure to check out this recording. In this webinar, presenter and Wessler Project Manager Andrew Gordon, P.E. discusses why you should complete a water loss audit, key terms to know, interpreting results, and what next steps to take.
