MIAMI – Saving the environment and saving money usually don’t go hand in hand, and most conservation efforts cost a pretty penny. But Miami-based company Eco Systems says they’ve done both.

They say they’ve found a way to save millions of gallons of water, while lowering water bills by thousands of dollars in the process.

“We have a company that’s able to do something for the environment as well as business,” Eco Systems co-founder Lawrence Lamondin said.

Lamondin said it’s all in their technology and leak detection system.

“What we do is go into properties like condominiums, nursing homes, etc, and we retrofit, especially in the bathrooms,” co-founder Richard Lamondin said. “We don’t rip anything out. We keep the guts and make adjustments.”

Property managers were skeptical at first.

Christa Bruett, who manages the 160-unit Treasures on the Bay 2 in North Bay Village said: “My initial reaction was they were exaggerating what they could do for us.”

Bruett decided to give Eco Systems a shot, and her decision paid off.
