Data is driving the discussion in the water industry
In the water industry, data is driving the discussion. To understand what this means requires a story about motor oil.
For decades, car manufacturers recommended that vehicles have their engine oil changed at least every 3,000 miles without fail. This was never proven practical, given that such decisions should be based on individual driving style, the conditions and climate – even the type of oil used. But these real-world conditions don't tend to factor into the carmaker's original guidelines.
