LeakNet Water Management System

This project team are using the LeakNet system to reduce welfare facility and construction water usage.

LeakNet measures pipe flow on a real time basis and learns the patterns of water usage on site. It can then identify abnormal water use patterns. For example, a constant steady flow throughout the night would be highlighted as unusual as water usually mostly occurs during the day. The system would then send an email reporting the unusual flow, prompting the site manager to investigate. Leaks are also addressed swiftly as unusual high flows are detected and reported quickly.

The system has high resolution, taking several readings per minute. Reports can be generated for days, weeks or months hence water usage can be tracked accurately against short and long term targets.

LeakNet also allows quick feedback on water saving strategies i.e. water usage can be compared over subsequent periods to determine whether a particular initiative has been effective.
