WATER LOSS AND LEAK DETECTION RESOURCES

  • Insta-Valve 20-24 Isolates Potentially Dangerous Leak Under Railroad Tracks

    Hydra-Stop’s solution stopped a potentially dangerous leak without disrupting service to nearby factories or businesses.

  • 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.

WATER LOSS AND LEAK DETECTION SOLUTIONS

  • Leak Detection One of the major causes of unaccounted-for water loss is leaking pipes
  • Leak Detection System Z-Corr, an advanced digital, correlating acoustic logging system, has been designed to utilize patented digital technology to simplify the leak detection process for buried water, steam and fuel lines
  • EchoShore®-M Transmission Main Leak Detection

    The EchoShore®-M system combines the latest generation of acoustic sensors with proven wireless communication networks in a node configuration that can be easily moved to multiple sites in your transmission main network – to search for leaks or validate acoustic POI signals. The EchoShore-M system enables utilities to quickly pinpoint leaks and significantly reduce water loss. The system is designed to be lightweight, rugged and portable, allowing a water company to monitor different sections of the transmission main from just a few hours to several days.

  • Mikron3

    A wireless electronic listening stick and ground microphone system that can be used to survey and/or confirm leaks.

  • Accurately Measuring Network Leakage

    The pressures of supplying a growing global population mean that the world’s water supplies need to be managed more closely than ever.

  • 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.
