We installed our AMR Devices to water meters at HMP Holloway. Within days of installation, high levels of continuous consumption were detected by the Fusion Portal.
Continuous consumption can mean many things; an indication that assets have been left running, legitimate consumption or a potential leak.
Continuous consumption is shown in yellow on the Portal screenshot below.
Automatic alerts enabled our team to quickly highlight a potential issue with Peabody and check if this was legitimate consumption or a potential leakage issue.
After discussing the live data with the client it was clear there was a leakage issue which needed to be resolved. We were delighted to support Peabody with a follow up site survey, locating and fixing the leakage issue within days.

On arrival at site, we located the water meter which was displaying high levels of continuous consumption. All meters were then checked visually and sounded for water loss noise. We identified that the underground water network was showing both visual and auditory signs of leakage. The chamber was filling with water once emptied and a high-pitched noise was detected on the valve connection using listening sticks.
Once repaired, the consumption was again reviewed on our Fusion Portal, showing extremely positive results (see below).
The meter was now showing continuous consumption of 24 litres per hour as opposed to the 709 litres per hour it was previously recording.
The savings were instantly shown on Fusion.
Based on £2.50 per 1 m3 for water and wastewater charges, this would give an annual saving of c. £15k per annum!
