The Problem

The facilities manager at the football ground had been told by Severn Trent that, by reading the revenue meter overnight, they had identified that somewhere in the grounds was potentially a very large leak. The facilities manager did not know where to begin, so consulted Quensus to locate the problem(s).

How did we help?

Using LeakNet, they could see their monthly consumption rate, including contribution from different areas of the site, which allowed them to check where the leaks were coming from.

What did we find?

We found several faulty urinals, but it was the tanks (located in the loft) which had the most overnight flow rate, potentially wasting up to 21,000 litres per day.

What was the result?

They fixed the faulty ballcocks in both tanks and saved up to £12,000 per year, giving a payback in less than 2 months. But that’s not all…

Using our software to compare the internal usage with the external revenue meter, we proved that there was a supply pipe leak costing £82,000 per year!

After fixing the issue, we were able to negotiate a 12 month rebate of £57,000 credited straight into their account from their water supplier (through the water retailer).


Continuous monitoring, coupled with automated alerts, is by far the best way to spot problems, minimise waste and keep bills low.

The football club saved up to £94,000 per year!
