Detecting Leaks in Water-Distribution Pipes

  title={Detecting Leaks in Water-Distribution Pipes},
  • Published 2000
  • In most water-distribution systems, a large percentage of the water is lost in transit from treatment plants to consumers. The amount of water that is lost or unaccounted for is typically 20-30 percent of production.1 Some systems, especially older ones, may lose as much as 50 percent. Water loss can be attributed to several causes, including leakage, metering errors, public usage such as fire-fighting and pipe flushing, and theft. Leakage is usually the major cause. Leakage occurs in different… CONTINUE READING
