Modern Water Leak Detection Technique

The introduction of AMI and acoustic technologies has come as a big boon in reducing water loss and lower carbon footprint and at the same time improve operational efficiencies.

Two-way AMI systems

According to an estimate by the Environment Protection Agency, there is a leakage of over 1 trillion gallons of water from U.S شركة كشف تسربات المياه. homes each year that were pumped out, treated and carried at an enormous expense.

These figures highlight how leakage of water is responsible for wastage of energy. Fortunately, the synergy of advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) and acoustic technology are proving an efficient way to reduce wasted energy and non-revenue water (NRW) and at the same time saving time and resources.

It needs mentioning here that AMI is also useful for gas utilities as well. For any gas leak, one can detect the fault accurately and take necessary measures to reduce loss resulting from the leak.

Two-Way AMI for Better Billing Information

Using the two-way AMI systems, the meter reading-to-billing process is streamlined, along with linking meters, control devices, distribution sites in a single date network. This has resulted in these networks automating the process of determining exactly the amount of water the customer is using for a given period of time, and also provides information that acts to reduce water loss efficiently as the consumer can act to improve water leaks and conserve in the process.

Getting Main Leak Detection Automatically

By making use of highly sensitive acoustic sensors and advanced algorithms along with two-way AMI networks, one can identify and detect distribution main leaks, all from a distance of few kilometers away. The information provided can help prioritize repair projects efficiently thus help utilizing saved time and resources.

Empowering Consumers

Consumers find it beneficial to keep water bills down and also get accountability of household water usage. The two-way AMI systems are finding greater usability with the availability of web-based portals that presents usage data to consumers in a graphical manner. The displayed format helps consumers to check their water consumption, compare results of different periods, set budget and alerts for better conservation goals. Facilities exist to use PCs and Smartphone to access the portal and monitor household water usage in different time frames.
