Leak Detection

Minimize costly water leaks

As an industry leader, SAMCO understands the value of our water resources. Our goal is to eliminate the challenges every utility system faces with water loss from their aging infrastructure to avoid any loss in revenue. We also understand that a certain amount of our treated water cannot be accounted for, but without careful accounting and evaluation, the nature or extent of these losses cannot be defined. As such, SAMCO has the expertise to conduct a thorough water audit of your system. Utilizing the “water balance” approach, we identify the various revenue and non-revenue uses within the system, as well as the apparent and real losses of water from the system.

Using high tech acoustic equipment, SAMCO will inspect your entire water system to identify the exact leak locations. SAMCO inspects all assets and connection including:

  • Meters
  • Valves
  • Fire hydrants
  • Well sites
  • Storage tanks
  • Sample sites
  • Distribution mains
  • Service lines
  • Water pipelines
  • Water mains

We recognize that minimizing water loss is a very important strategy for water providers, and we believe water loss control is one of the most cost-effective strategies available today.

 Water loss control saves water, reduces operational costs and can improve the financial bottom line by netting uncaptured revenue and lowering production costs.
