Water Loss and Leak Detection Podcasts

  1. Intelligent Fire Hydrants Provide Utilities With System Performance Data

    Historically, most fire hydrants sit idle after they are installed. They were there for that one day that hopefully never shows up. But in today’s connected world, fire hydrants are becoming an important asset in understanding the water distribution system, allowing utilities to monitor their water system operation and predict leaks.

  2. Leak Detection Advancement

    For those unable to attend, the Internet of Things (IoT) was firmly part of the conversation at this year’s American Water Works Association’s (AWWA) Annual Convention and Exposition (ACE) in Philadelphia. If you haven’t heard the term, you’re going to hear a lot more of it in the years ahead. None more so than in the world of water distribution systems where it can provide real-time reporting to utility managers charged with systems upkeep, maintenance and reliability.

  3. Out Of This World Leak Detection

    Solving the problem of non-revenue water starts with leak detection. Many utilities live with leaks because of the time, labor, and expense involved in detecting, prioritizing and fixing them.  

  4. Technologies For Detecting Water Loss

    As water loss continues to concern many utilities, American Leak Detection’s franchise business model continues to “plug many a hole.” As Adam Gray, Director of Marketing for American Leak Detection, explains in this Water Online Radio interview, the franchise model is effective on numerous levels, whether it be providing the leak detection expertise that a utility doesn’t necessarily have on staff or allowing leak detection experts to share their insights and knowledge across the franchise network.

  5. Monitoring Technology Improves Leak Detection

    Eric Stacey, Product Manager with Echologics, recently sat down with Water Online Radio to discuss leak detection, pipeline condition assessment, and permanent monitoring. As more and more sensors are put into the water distribution system, utilities are monitoring the formation of leaks and becoming more informed about their water loss.

  6. Non-Invasive Assessment Of Buried Pipe

    There can be few things worse than having your customer-base in a drought-plagued state like California watch as thousands of gallons of freshly-treated drinking water erupt from a burst main. In a world where water is becoming increasingly precious, utilities are becoming more proactive in identifying leaks and fixing problems before catastrophes occur.

  7. What Condition Are Your Pipelines In?

    With a heightened focus on water loss, pipeline condition assessment has become a hot topic. Armed with better data, utilities are making more informed decisions about their Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) budgets and repair or replace pipeline priorities.

  8. The Internet Of Things Meets The Water Industry

    The cost and complexity of moving data from one device to another within the wired or wireless world of water is about to change.

  9. How To Raise Your Water System’s IQ

    Water Online Radio’s Kelly Riggs asked a simple but important question to Paul Gifford, director of R&D with Mueller Company. His query, to paraphrase, was “What is intelligent water technology?”

  10. Leak Detection: Catching And Monitoring Leaks As They Form

    Echologics, a division of Mueller Corporation, is an acoustic company doing acoustic-based leak detection and condition assessment. Eric Stacey, Product Manager with Echologics, joined Water Online Radio for an interview to discuss Echologics’ lastest technologies.
