Quantification of Customer Supply Pipe Leakage - A Guide for Data Collection
13/WM/08/52 - ISBN: 1 84057 705 3
Understanding of the UK supply pipe asset base is limited. Although not owned by the water companies, the supply pipe is a source of leakage.
The report identifies the diverse industry drivers for greater understanding...
Alternative Methods for the Quantification of Leakage
13/WM/08/51 - ISBN: 1 84057 697 9
Currently most UK water companies use the minimum night flow method for quantifying and reporting leakage levels. As companies' domestic and commercial meter penetration increases it should be possible to carry out DMA level ...
Effect of Weather on Leakage and Bursts
13/WM/08/50 - ISBN: 1 84057 683 9
Weather conditions have had a severe impact on bursts and leakage in recent years and water companies are seeking relationships to explain and predict this impact for severe weather events. This report explores available weat...
Assessment of Low Flow Components of Night Use and the Water Balance
12/WM/08/48 - ISBN: 1 84057 646 4
The project investigated the effect of un-measured and under-registered low flows on night-use allowances in leakage calculations, and on estimates of household per-capita consumption.
The study found that the most sig...
Leak Detection on Plastic Pipes
12/WM/08/47 - ISBN: 1 84057 647 2
Conventional leak detection techniques often prove ineffective in locating leaks accurately due to the poor acoustic properties in polyethylene pipe and issues such as highly attenuated leak signals, wave speed estimates, poo...
