Don’t Give Water Away For Free

CASE STUDY

An existing mechanical meter was integrated into the WaMSS by connecting an Isoil GPRS logger. Every morning the Water Manager observed the normal day/night flow pattern. Things ran smoothly until one Wednesday morning when he saw the flow rate collapse to zero and stay there. Line pressure continued its normal trend. He suspected a catastrophic failure of the mechanical meter. On-site inspection revealed damage to the rotor and grit lodged in the internals which caused the turbine to lock up.

Without the WaMSS, on a normal monthly measurement cycle it would have taken 3 to 6 weeks for the zero readings to be identified. During this time the flow would be unbilled, leading to a loss of revenue and inaccurate water balance. WaMSS saved the day - and made sure all the water was metered and billed!
