Importance Of Control Valve Training


  Why is training so essential for water utilities, engineers and operators? There are continuous changes in regulation of water distribution systems, changing laws and water quality mandates. In order to ensure compliance, utilities and their staff need proper training on the tools and methodology to keep up with an ever-changing industry. Understanding pressure management as it pertains to system pressure controls, tank turn over, flushing, water quality, remote pressure monitoring and leak detection are of great importance to utility managers.

Most utilities understand the need for pressure reducing valves, but there are many more benefits to accurate pressure management than to just control pressure alone. Leakage and non-revenue water loss continue to be a major concern for utilities as well as maintaining overall water quality. By understanding how to implement a pressure management program, the amount of recoverable water losses can be staggering, as well as have a significant reduction in pipe breakages.
