A pre-project survey will be conducted for leak correlation with a goal to rank and identify entities with the most prioritized need of assistance and list development.

A Leak Detection Survey is a physical evaluation of a water system to identify specific leaks. It involves using a listening device to find leaks in pipes or fittings within the distribution system.


Water loss identification is not that difficult. It takes a conscientious approach, awareness by everyone involved in the water delivery process, and an earnest effort in maintaining a functional system. Prevention today may save dollars tomorrow. Real and apparent losses add up over time if not checked and properly recorded or fixed. Stop those leaks and stop your losses. Equipment information: How do I know which equipment I should purchase? Who should I call or talk to? How do I know which is best for my water system? How much does it cost? All of your questions will be answered, plus it will include a table top demo.
