Water Pressure Management

Controlling and regulating the pressure in the water distribution network saves resources and reduces the level of non-revenue water (NRW) loss. Pressure management is one of the most beneficial and cost-effective leakage management activities that can have an immediate impact.

What Is Water Pressure Management?

Water pressure management is the control of water pressure in distribution systems. It is a critical component of NRW reduction. This reduction reduces the over-pressurization of water pressure at specific times on the aging pipe network, leading to fewer leaks and damage from fluctuating pressures.

Why Is Water Pressure Management Vital?

Pressure management is important for environmental and water conservation, decreasing leak flow rates and consumption components. Water pressure management is also vital in providing water utilities and customers with energy savings, chemical use reductions, reducing bursts and leaks. Fewer leaks and damage mean fewer repairs, reinstatement costs, minimizes public liability and negative publicity. 

Water pressure management also means active leakage control, deferred infrastructure renewals and the extension of the asset life of all service and main connections. This increased longevity impacts distribution and customer service connections, resulting in fewer customer complaints.

Add in the capability of monitoring flow right along with Pressure monitoring or modulation control and you exponentially increase the savings on all fronts.  These two tools combined are being found to combat the increasing growing addition of softer pipes in distribution systems which are already hard to listen to acoustically for leaks. Allowing agencies of any size to actively approach NRW loss.
