Services that deliver results
Our expertise using state-of-the-art acoustic equipment combined with years of practical field experience make SAMCO your go-to experts in leak detection services.
Acoustic Leak Detection
Equipped with sensitive listening devices to detect the various types of leak sounds , experienced SAMCO technicians can identify and pinpoint leaks so you can make the necessary repairs without digging “dry holes’.
Water Conservation Consulting
SAMCO’s professional, “hands on” field experience gives us the expertise that utilities can count on for consulting services, which include
- Leak detection preventive maintenance programs.
- Comprehensive bottom-to-top water system evaluations .
- Analysis of water metering applications and accuracy testing.
- Leak detection programming
- Leak detection equipment sales and consulting
- GPS data collection at sub-thirty centimeter accuracy.
- GPS leak survey mapping design.
Global Positioning System (GPS) Services
SAMCO technicians use highly accurate Global Positioning System (GPS) equipment and state-of-the-art acoustic equipment to find subsurface leaks. We are able to detect and locate the smallest of leaks and other points of water loss in pressurized water systems anywhere in the world. Once the acoustic leak detection and location work is completed in the field, the data are imported into the Geographic Information System (GIS) for display and analysis. Subsequently GIS data may be incorporated into maps and into new or existing Geographic Information Systems (GIS) applications. These GIS data support capital improvement programming, GASB response, maintenance and leak repair implementation, emergency planning and response, and customer service relations.
SAMCO works diligently to halt and prevent water losses, so towns, cities, rural communities, utility districts, military bases and even remote islands can begin a more successful program to conserve their available water resources.
Comprehensive Water System Evaluations
In order to supplement SAMCO’s efforts to control physical losses from systems, Advanced WaterMetrics (AWM) can provide Comprehensive bottom-to-top water system evaluations. AWM is an independent, consulting Samco affiliate that has more than 30 years’ experience in water system accountability. AWM provides objective, in-depth analyses of water system operations that in basic terms help the water utility system close the prevailing gap existing between the volume of water produced and the volume of water billed or otherwise metered to end users. The comprehensive system evaluation may also provide review of meter management procedures to optimize the efficiency in customer metering, while minimizing costs associated with acquiring, and maintaining a cost-effective metering system.
Every Advanced WaterMetrics system evaluation is tailored to meet the specific needs and conditions of the individual system. While SAMCO leak detection services have a direct positive impact on the physical loss of water from the distribution system, the primary focus of the AWM water system evaluation is to optimize revenue capture and improve , metering cost-effectiveness. In this way, AWM provides a valuable complement to SAMCO’s efforts to curtail physical loss of water, thereby completing the total water accountability balance sheet.
