WATER LOSS AND LEAK DETECTION RESOURCES

  • Hydra-Stop’s Insta-Valve 20-24 Delivers Performance Under Pressure

    Hydra-Stop’s solution kept the water running in a highly active and populated area while repairs were made.

  • Centuries Old Infrastructure Gains Control With The Insta Valve 250

    Hydra-Stop’s solution allowed the city to gain control of their infrastructure where no valves were present.

  • The Insta-Valve 250 Puts A Stop To A Month-Long Water Loss Of 150 GPM

    Hydra-Stop’s solution allowed a targeted shutdown to stop a massive and costly water loss.

  • Why Material Selection Matters

    The Tri-County Water Authority (TCWA) was formed in 1991 as a not-for-profit water utility serving portions of Jackson, Cass and Bates counties, Missouri. When the system was first established, about half of the pipe installed were ductile iron and half were plastic PVC. Today, the authority’s 120 miles of pipe are approximately 75% ductile iron and 25% plastic PVC.

  • The Drive Towards Digital Transformation

    It seems that everywhere that you go in the water industry at the current time, somebody is talking about digital transformation…or if we go back five minutes, it was Water 4.0…and 10 minutes ago (it seems), it was “smart water.” These are all very well used buzzwords that the industry is destined to think about for a short-term and then promptly forget about. In reality, though, we as an industry have been hit by a number of different concepts for a number of different technological aspects for a good number of years now. For almost as long we have had a term for all of this — “widgets.”

  • The Iron Bowl And America’s Water Pipe

    Saturday will be the 84th playing of the Auburn vs. Alabama football game. The first was played in 1893, and following a tie in 1907, the game was not played again until 1948 after a mandate to resume by the state legislature. It’s as well-known as any college football rivalry, and many fans of other teams will acknowledge it as the nation’s most intense.

  • Early Leak Detection Efforts Already Yield Significant Savings

    A large municipal water utility in the southwest operates multiple facilities that provide more than 170 MGD of drinking water to residents and businesses. The utility, which spans 100 square miles, is prone to leaky pipes because parts of its distribution system have been in place for nearly a century. Also known as non-revenue water, or NRW, these leaks significantly drive up the cost of production.

  • The Insta-Valve 250 Minimizes Disruption During An Emergency

    Like so many municipalities, the City of Miamisburg has an aging infrastructure of valves that had not been excercised in decades. Read the full project brief to learn how Hydra-Stop’s solution allowed greater control that minimized shutdown when a water main ruptured.

  • Water Loss Control — From Audit To Action

    Non-revenue water loss is a problem from coast to coast, but California has taken a lead and set an example — with resources from AWWA — by adopting and sharing best practices to help solve the issue.

  • Solutions To Reduce Water Loss And Gain Revenue

    Most utilities understand they have a nonrevenue water problem, but few know how to deal with it correctly. Start by learning more about how the issue affects your utility and what options are available.

WATER LOSS AND LEAK DETECTION SOLUTIONS

  • Echologics Trunk Main Leak Detection

    Virtually every water utility has at some point experienced a catastrophic failure of a large-diameter trunk main, resulting in damage to both the water main itself and the surrounding infrastructure.

  • Water Distribution System Wireless Monitoring

    Trimble Telog offers the industry’s leading remote data acquisition system including the most comprehensive family of battery powered, environmentally rugged wireless monitors available from any single supplier.

     

  • Echologics LeakMonitor - Permanent Leak Detection

    Pipelines are a valuable asset and leakage or failure can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars in direct and indirect costs.

  • Aclara RF Network ZoneScan Solution

    Find and fix leaks fast with the Aclara ZoneScan II leak-detection system. The industry’s leading, remotely correlated acoustic leak detection system cost-effectively identities small leaks before they become major problems, and will give you immediate insight into non-revenue water losses in your water distribution network.

  • Aclara RF Network 3400 Water MTU

    The new 3400 On-Demand Meter Transmission Unit (MTU) for water uses the efficient, low-power, high performance two-way Aclara RF Network technology to transmit hourly, interval usage data to the utility. The MTU supports up to nine-digit registers and delivers time-stamped reads on a time-synchronized network, allowing for advanced water distribution management. Enhanced features such as on-demand reads, firmware over the air, on-board storage of readings, market leading security,meter-generated alarms and flags and remote shut-off valve control bring market-leading AMI capabilities to the Aclara RF Network.

  • EchoShore-DX Permanent Leak Monitoring Platform

    Early leak detection is vital for distribution systems, with the ability to identify system failure points before they impact customer service levels. When water resources are limited, early leak detection is a valuable tool in reducing non-revenue water and extending pipe asset life. The EchoShore®-DX platform is a fixed leak detection technology that is changing the way water main leaks are identified and repaired.

  • How To Install The Insta-Valve 20-24

    The Insta-Valve 20-24 is a permanent asset designed to provide decades of trouble-free operation, and can be capitalized and depreciated over time, much like a traditional gate valve. The Insta-Valve 20-24 is installed under pressure, without the need to mill or remove a section of pipe. With one-day installation, the Insta-Valve 20-24 is the smart, economical investment to help you eliminate shutdown and reduce the cost of system maintenance and repair by up to 30%.
