The problem: Water loss
High levels of NRW (Non Revenue Water)
are detrimental to the financial viability of water utilities.
The problem realize in water gauges as:
Unmeasured real losses (leaks)
Apparent Losses (theft & metering inaccuracies)
Between 5%-15% of unmeasured flow, results in
incorrect customer billing.
The problem increases in countries that suffer from old
piping infrastructure and/or advanced age of water
Most of the meters world wide are Multi Jet meters.
About 1/3 are Positive Displacement (PD) meters.
Our device suits all, and extends the life span of the meter
considerably, hence preventing changes in production
lines & high costs of field service including meter replacement.
Placed at the exit of the apartment water meter, enables
low flow metering (leaks, thefts), that would otherwise go
unnoticed (None Revenue water). 5%-15% of the
supplied water are not measured by the utility. By
installing the LFD this water will be charged for.
The solution – LFD (patented)
Marketing strategy: Signing licensing agreements in
each territory with a key water meter manufacturer, to
supply local water utilities.
World wide TAM:
700M water meters with a 5 year life cycle.
Annual replacement of 70M water meters.
970 water meters manufacturers worldwide.
