    Reduce Costly Non-Revenue Water with Real Loss Leak Detection

    Put an end to expensive leaks with help from our team at Pipe Tools. Our preferred products, modern strategies, and decades of expertise—partnered with your unique challenges—will result in custom solutions that can enhance your ROI.

Stop Real Losses

...with leak detection and a pipe condition assessment from Aquarius Spectrum and our Pipe Tools team.

Pipe Tools uses the Aquarius Spectrum Water Leak Detection and Monitoring System to identify leaks. Aquarius underground water leak detection equipment offers a modern approach to the older, more manual leak detection process.

Here's how Aquarius Spectrum works:

Listen for Leaks

Patented fixed sensors (Ground Hydrant Sensors, Below Ground Valve Sensors, Hydrophones, and specialty multi-purpose sensors) listen nightly for the telltale “whooshing” sound that lets us know there’s a leak.

Collect Data

That sound data is collected by the Aquarius software and turned into immediate user-friendly and actionable insights about the leak, its location, and its size.

Analyze Insights

Those insights are used to make strategic decisions around pipe repair and leak priority.

With Aquarius, we’re able to identify small leaks, service leaks, bursts, leaks on hydrants, valves, and leaks on water mains up to 30” in diameter. Even better? All of the leak detection data is delivered to your desktop every day. Not yearly or every few years, but every day.

Non-revenue water can be costly for water departments and municipalities. Water loss from pipe leaks (also known as “real losses”) keeps treated water from reaching its destination.

The US lost an estimated $7.6 billion of treated water in 2019 due to leaks.

Detecting and repairing these leaks not only reduces the cost of operations, it can also reduce and prevent: property damage, inflows to streams and sewer plants, administrative pressure from not addressing the leaks, and the potential for bad publicity.
