Detecting leaks to reduce water loss and disruptive bursts

Looking for a way to detect and locate leaks in your network so that you can reduce non-revenue water loss and avoid disruptive bursts?

While rolling out digital meters across their network, South East Water saw an opportunity to include advanced sensors to gain greater insights into the network and move to a predictive stance. Integrated into the meter, Sotto® uses vibrations in the water pipes to detect the existence of leaks enabling them to be accurately located.

The deployment so far has exceeded expectations and Iota looks forward to commercialising what promises to be a game-changing technology for the water industry. Details of South East Water’s experience to date were shared at the recent Water New Zealand Conference where it won Paper of the Year.
