An article published in the January 2019 edition of Water Innovations journal has suggested that a next-generation “low-leakage water system built on proven smart control and pressure-controlling valves” is the solution to reducing leaks in the US water network that loses approximately six billion gallons of water per day.
Globally, most countries face many similar problems within their water networks. Aging infrastructure, growing populations and a higher demand for clean, fresh water increases the pressure on water companies all across the world.
Fluctuations in water pressure can cause leakage in an aging network and as such, the ability to monitor and amend pressure when necessary plays an important role in reducing leaks.
Pegasus+ is a cost-effective, rapidly deployed, remotely-managed pressure control system from HWM with the ability to set target pressure by time, flow or a combination of both.
Supporting the flexibility to modulate pressure according to demand throughout the day, Pegasus+ incorporates integral two-way GPRS communications, meaning changes can be made remotely.
Pegasus+ is a proven solution for effective pressure management and leak reduction. Severn Trent Water has successfully reduced leakage by 5Ml/d by installing over 200 Pegasus+ devices to their network.

The success experienced by Severn Trent Water, and others, shows that effective pressure control can play a key role in a successful leak prevention strategy. For more information on modulating pressure with Pegasus+ please click here.
