Combined with analysing weather patterns, the software aims to indicate water usage and the condition of water networks.
(PRWEB UK) 7 August 2013
According to the BBC on July 30, cloud based software is helping to monitor water usage. TaKaDu, who monitors water networks around the world, is analysing the data collected from sensors and meters connected to water companies’ supply networks, as well as looking at industrial and domestic water usage. Combined with analysing weather patterns, the software aims to indicate water usage and the condition of water networks.
The World Bank believes that 50 billion cubic metres of water is lost per year due to bursts and leaks in water networks’ pipes, and the software hopes to help address this problem. TaKaDu have indicated that one client saved 1 million Euros last year after the software helped them to reduce water leakage.
Speaking of the software, Moshe Tamir, from TaKaDu, told the BBC that:
“We built a very smart algorithm that can spot anomalies in the network’s behaviour, from a small leak to a burst water main, enabling water utilities to plan and react much faster than before. And when you save water you save energy.”
Well-known for their Southwark plumbers, the specialists at We Fix Now keep up to date with developments in the industry and were interested in this recent news. A spokesperson for the firm shared their thoughts:
“It is encouraging that software has been created which helps tackle the problem of wasted water. While water companies can put measures in place to help conserve water, there are simple steps that members of the public can take too. In the home, leaking taps and pipes can account for significant amounts of wasted water. One way to help save water, as well as money, is to regularly check that taps and pipes aren’t leaking. If you think you have a leak, contact a qualified plumber straight away who will be able to sort the problem.”
