When the pressure builds up in the underground systems that distribute water, it doesn’t take a creative mind to imagine what could happen next. The resulting bursts can mean extensive repairs to the pipes, significant restoration to damaged property, and the prospect of lost water revenue pouring out of the system. To combat dangerously mounting pressure, systems utilize pressure reducing valves (PRVs).
To learn more about how distribution systems can stay on top of their PRVs and react to failures before costly damage is done, Water Online spoke with Kerry Hoffman, regional sales manager for Telog. He talked about monitoring PRVs, real-time data accrual, and saving on energy costs.
