    Non-Revenue Water Loss Lessens With Better Metering Analytics

    Installing or upgrading to an advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) solution may only happen once-in-a-lifetime at a water utility. So it is important to take the time to understand the specific circumstances and outcomes that you wish to hit before making your purchasing decision.

  • The Basics: ORP and Free Chlorine Monitoring
    The Basics: ORP and Free Chlorine Monitoring

    Oxidation Reduction Potential or Redox is the activity or strength of oxidizers and reducers in relation to their concentration. Oxidizers accept electrons, reducers lose electrons. Examples of oxidizers are: chlorine, hydrogen peroxide, bromine, ozone, and chlorine dioxide. Examples of reducers are sodium sulfite, sodium bisulfate and hydrogen sulfide. Like acidity and alkalinity, the increase of one is at the expense of the other.
