Why SENSOR DDS® LID is so unique
The Sensor DDS® LID product is unique in that it measures the soil for actual leakage, this means that leakage can be caught at a very early stage that is currently not possible with existing techniques. In addition, pipe made of plastic or of large diameters that present a problem for sound-based leak location systems present no issue to LID. This coupled with the fact that LID is networkable and retro fittable means that at last a truly smart pipe monitoring system has arrived that is fit for purpose in the smart cities of the future.
Even where water is in relatively plentiful supply, water companies face huge costs associated with leakage and the 3rd party damage that results from leakage. Installation of partially effective low-resolution systems is already widespread. The cost of the LID system is less costly than others and provides high resolution leakage information.
