Water leak detection products
The LeakSaver product monitors the flow of water through a pipe. The alarm panel is connected to water meters that send pulses relating to water usage, e.g. one pulse for every 10 litres of water. The panel is programmed with the expected amount of water usage, based on the type of building, the occupancy and the amount of facilities using water, if the flow of water exceeds this setting an alarm will be triggered.
The Leaksaver is a water leak detection system capable of detecting a major water leak on the mains water supply within the building and between the building and the utilities water meter. It monitors the amount of water passing into the building over a set period of time. Should this amount be exceeded it will create an alarm. It can be used when there is external pipe work between the boundary and the building. This enables the distinction between a leak outside (usually underground) and one inside the building.
The LeakSaver can also be used for “Water Monitoring”. A pulsed water meter is required on all mains supplies and on the supply to any building using more than 10% of the total water consumption. The LeakSaver connects to the water meter/s and to the Building Management System to monitor the amount of water used.
An alarm is raised when the flow of water exceeds a pre-set maximum for a pre-set period of time. It is able to identify different flow rates by programming high and/or low levels over different time periods. It is fully programmable to suit the users water consuming requirements and has the ability to avoid false alarms when larger volumes of water are called for.
The specification of a water meter on the mains water supply to each building; this includes instances where water is supplied via a borehole or other private source. Water-consuming plant or building areas, consuming 10% or more of the building’s total water demand, are either fitted with sub meters or have water monitoring equipment integral to the plant or area. Each meter (main and sub) has a pulsed output to enable connection to a Building Management System (BMS) for the monitoring of water consumption. If the site on which the building is located has an existing BMS, managed by the same occupier/owner (as the new building), the pulsed water meter(s) for the new building must be connected to the existing BMS.
A leak detection system which is capable of detecting a major water leak on the mains water supply within the building and between the building and the utilities water meter. The leak detection system is:
Audible when activated
Activated when the flow of water passing through the water meter/data logger is at a flow rate above a pre-set maximum for a pre-set period of time
Able to identify different flow and therefore leakage rates, e.g. continuous, high and/or low level, over set time periods
Programmable to suit the owner/occupiers’ water consumption criteria
Where applicable, designed to avoid false alarms caused by normal operation of large water-consuming plant such as chillers.
A flow control device is fitted to each WC area/facility to ensure water is supplied only when needed (and therefore prevent minor water leaks):
Uses PIR (passive infrared) sensors connected to valves fitted on the main water supplies to the area. When someone enters the toilet, the PIR activates and the valves open allowing water to flow in. After the area’s been vacated the valve automatically closes, switching the water off again.
Fitting a flow control system to all WC areas in a building to minimise the impact of minor water leaks. Toilet areas that have a common water feed can be served by several PIR sensors connected to a single valve. Fitting a PIR flow control system to all your WC areas will:
1.Reduce loss of water through undetected leaks.
2.Help to prevent large scale flooding due to burst pipes or vandalism.
3.Minimise water being wasted when taps are left running.

Achieves flow monitoring for water leak detection.
Flush and surface mount PIR sensors available.
Multiple valves can be run from one PIR sensor.
Summary of Features:
•Available in single or two zone versions. Single zone is used where there is no external pipe work from the boundary or the mains water supplies more than one building.
•The two zone version is used to monitor external pipe work from the boundary as well as inside the building.
•Alarms when the flow of water exceeds a pre-set maximum amount within a set period of time.
•Able to identify different flow rates by programming high and low flow levels allowing for different occupancies at different times of the day.
•The LeakSaver is fully programmable to suit the users requirements.
•Larger volumes of water can be called for without causing a false alarm.
•Built to a very high standard ensuring reliability and performance.
