Our team members at Flowd are all experts in their fields, brought together by a shared vision to conserve water
and solve problems arising from undetected water leaks.
David Langdon – Managing Director
David’s involvement with professional water management comes from 15 years in property management as MD of Aspire Property Management, one of Noosa’s largest property management firms. Issues relating to water usage within the property portfolio led to David’s drive to find solutions for better water management.
Through Aspire, David has experienced many cases of undetected water leaks and excess water use – bill shock, property damage, insurance claims and disputes. Problematic water billing administration in strata complexes and a lack of capacity for owners to pay for water fairly, based on individual use and not a split charge, is also an issue.
At a practical level, David wanted to provide clients with a better solution. This led to a collaboration with like-minded professionals and the creation of Flowd Smart Water Solutions to provide practical and cost-effective answers to these issues.
