Apparent water losses are one of the most pressing problems water utilities face, and one of the hardest to detect and quantify. On average, apparent water loss accounts for up to 2 percent of a utility’s operating revenue. Xylem’s Hidden Revenue Locator unlocks that top-line revenue through the power of advanced data science, helping a utility not raise rates.
Deployed as an end-to-end solution that combines a subscription-based software with operational guidance, Hidden Revenue Locator identifies individual meter issues with the largest revenue gain potential to help utilities create a prioritized plan for customer meter replacements. This actionable information allows the water utilities to optimize daily field maintenance activities and implement more efficient meter testing and replacement programs based on asset performance rather than age.
