Leak Detection & County Councils

Posted by | May 30, 2014 | Uncategorized | No Comments

We have worked with many county councils in the past and continue to do so. Some of the work we do for councils includes leak detection, water surveys and implementing rainwater harvesting devices.

Recently we completed a water survey on a local government office for a local county council . As part of the audit we identfied key areas where they could save money by installing water saving devices such as hippo bags and aerators. We also set up a logger to track their water usage. By analysing the data collected we can determine if there may be a leaking pipe (e.g. if there is a huge volume of water being used during the night whenthere would be no one on the premises).

County Councils often refer people in their local area who are experiencing leaks to us. We have carried out work on numerous domestic leaks all around Ireland including Counties Clare, Limerick, Tipperary, Galway and Dublin. We use a range of techniques to detect leaks including the tracer gas method and finding leaks through the use of acoustic leak detection equipment.  Below is a picture of one of the leaks we found at a domestic clients home.

A county manager, Tom Curran from Kerry County Council recently warned that Irish Water has been set up too quickly and that it would not be able to adequately cope with the number of leaks on the network.

He stressed how important it is for leaks to be fixed as it is costing the water network a huge amount of money.
