In spite of water being so fundamental to human survival, an astonishing 32 billion cubic meters are lost to leakage globally in urban water distribution systems every year according to the World Bank which is on average 25% of all urban drinking water. Reduction of these levels is not being addressed by traditional ‘find-and-fix’ methods which contribute primarily to maintaining leakage levels. Aggressive measures to reduce leakage in bulk are carried out through extremely costly high-end trenchless or traditional water mains renewal/replacement. Traditional methods also suffer from high and prolonged levels of social disruption.
With our unique Trenchless, Automated, Leakage Repair (TALR), water utilities can now benefit from a service that automatically detects, seals and cures typical leakage distribution network pipes without the need for digging up streets.
