Household water meters tend not to measure low water flows caused by leaks due to broken taps, poor aging pipes, bad water maintenance at homes and offices, poor quality of underground assets and pressure changes that cause pipe bursts and more. Water meters become less accurate due to sudden and intermittent changes in the pipe pressures, they age and filled with scale and not maintained or changed on time. Leaks lead to Water Loss in the system reaching 5%-25% of total water supply to residential users.
These small leaks remain unnoticed for a long time. Today, the small low flows causing leaks are unnoticed since there is no device or system on the market that can detect these leaks and alert utilities and customers online as they actually happen. The leaks keep going until they form damages to properties and noticed after a long time.
