Good Water Management Saves R3.3 million a Year
An Isoil battery powered mag flow meter with built-in logging was installed in July ’15 and leak detection/repair and rationalization programs were set in motion.Rationalization and repairs were completed on 7 August.
The average flow rate before 7 August was 149 m3/h. After repair and rationalization the flow rate averaged 72 m3/h. This is a saving of 77 m3/h.
Costing the water at R5.00 per m3, there is a cash saving of R385.00 per hour which translates into savings of R277,200.00 per month.
This is an excellent example of how accurate flow measurement together with flow logging informs you what is happening within your network, alerting you to leaks or other problems. The benefits of good water management are clearly proved.
