Have you ever wondered how much water you’re losing in your system due to leaks or unbilled usage? How about the dollar value of that lost water? Is it even worth your time to address this loss?
The answer is – absolutely! In the U.S. alone, approximately $9B of non-revenue water is lost to leaks or unbilled usage, of which up to 75% is recoverable (1A,1B).
How can I determine my cost of water loss?
The Siemens Cost-of-Water leak detection calculator will help you determine potential savings you could experience by reducing water loss in your system. Our leak detection calculator will assist you in quantifying water loss by analyzing the water released to your system compared to that which is accounted for. The real water loss is then calculated in dollar value to highlight potential savings in your system. In addition, there are calculators available for calculating motor energy costs and savings through economy pumping.

How can I realize the savings in my system?
While working to reduce your water loss, it is critical to have accurate and reliable water meters throughout your distribution network. This will allow you to determine losses and pinpoint areas of concern.
First, utilize existing meters to identify where water loss is occurring in your system by comparing the output of source meters to the sum of all sub-meters.
Next, install meters at critical locations that aren’t currently monitored for increased transparency into the system.
Finally, incorporate logic in your system to perform the analysis and alert operators promptly when an issue arises.
