With support from the Ontario Water Consortium’s Water Industry Growth Program, Digital Water Solutions is reshaping water distribution network management with their groundbreaking hydrant.AI technology.
Today, many communities lose up to half of the drinking water they treat due to leaks in their distribution networks. To help tackle the problem, Digital Water Solutions (DWS) developed ground-breaking technology with support from OWC. Their hydrant.AI devices sit inside fire hydrants, gathering acoustic, pressure and temperature data from within the water column. Then, AI software gets to work, using that data to identify and localize low-level leaks — and even predict catastrophic bursts before they occur.
Smart leak detection that makes every drop count – Ontario Water Consortium
Reducing potable water waste is one of the biggest challenges water utilities and municipalities face. Every day, they lose huge amounts of water through leaks in their aging pipe networks – resulting in lost revenue, wasted water resources and higher operational costs.
AI-Powered Leak Detection Technology Reduces Water Loss – CIMA+
June 14, 2022
Two disruptive technologies are working together to forge an open data response to global water insecurity.
Software firm FIDO Tech, whose AI is the world’s first to accurately size and locate hidden water leaks, has teamed up with Digital Water Solutions (DWS) whose autonomous monitoring platform uses novel in-hydrant sensing technology to gather enhanced leak data.
Together the two companies believe they can seriously advance progress on fixing the near one third of world water which is lost through leaks.
