Demand for clean drinking water is rapidly increasing, while water networks are being challenged by environmental factors such as climate change and population growth.
Leak detection is a proven method of safeguarding water. If leaks are not detected quickly then immense quantities of water may be wasted. Significantly, it is estimated that 90% of leaks never show at ground level, making them much harder to identify.
Whether through fixed telemetry products like PermaNET SU or portable alternatives (including PCorr+ and DXmic Pro), HWM supplies effective leak detection technologies to water companies across the world.
Network monitoring can also be used for the prevention of leaks. Efficient pressure management can reduce the strain on a network, reducing pressure spikes and preventing bursts. With solutions like our new Pegasus 2 and Sentinel 2, HWM provides a variety of effective pressure management tools.
Here at HWM we understand the importance of effective network monitoring and have developed an innovative range of leak detection, pressure management and data logging solutions to support you in maintaining your water network.
