An increase in flow or decrease in pressure on a water network can indicate leakage or other kinds of water losses. Aquam’s consultancy team can help clients implement remotely managed, real-time flow and pressure monitoring.
This means that an alarm can be raised and operators alerted in the event of a significant change in flow rate or drop in pressure.
Once the figure for total network consumption has been calculated, the minimum night flow (MNF) on a given network can be determined. This can then be used as a threshold for raising any alarm.
Acoustic leak detection technology can also be incorporated into this system by capturing and interpreting frequency differences in the noise emitted by leaks.
