Predicting Leakage Issues Using The PI System

Yorkshire Water produces 1.3 billion liters of clean water and treats one billion liters of water in its waste water networks every single day. The company has 686 treatment facilities spread across northern England and 83,000 kilometers of water pipelines, which is enough to circle the earth twice. The cast iron pipework makes the system prone to leakage, which can significantly affect water availability for its five million domestic and 136,000 business customers, drive up costs, and result in hefty fines. To mitigate leakage risks, Yorkshire turned to the PI System to take a predictive approach in order to significantly shorten the time it takes to identify and fix a system leak.
