This particular school in the East Midlands had 2 LeakNet units installed, monitoring 3 different areas. The system was fitted on a 28mm mains, and two 22mm branches.

Using LeakNet, they could see their monthly consumption rate, including contribution from different areas of the site, which allowed them to check if they were being charged the correct amount in their bills.

However, the greatest benefit came within hours of installation, which found water being wasted at 3,600 litres per day when the site was closed.

The school was alerted automatically, on the same day of installation, and could see which branch the leak was coming from. They then fixed some faulty cistern valves a week later.

Result


The school more than halved their water bill, saving £3,000 per year.

So the problem had been revealed, no need to keep monitoring right?

Well, 2 months later, another set of valves failed. LeakNet caught the anomaly, which was wasting over 9,000 litres per day, and sent the appropriate alerts.

Result


The school saved a further £8,000 per year!

Conclusion


Continuous monitoring, coupled with automated alerts, is by far the best way to spot problems, minimise waste and keep bills low. Have you got an effective monitoring solution in place?
