The Hidden Cost of Leaky Pipes

As metal rusts and degrades over time, water systems develop pinhole leaks. Caused by pitting corrosion, pinhole leaks let out a small amount of water at a time. However, with enough pinhole leaks over a community-wide area, they add up quickly.

In the US, leaky
pipes lose over
6 billion gallons

of water every day.

Each community
nationwide loses
20-50% of its water
through leaks.

Additionally, the US
experiences over
240,00 water main
breakages each year.

These issues lead to higher utility bills, increased contaminants in water, and eventually structural damage to buildings if unattended for too long.

Results You Can See

Are you thinking of adopting smart water technology to help detect your city’s leaks?
By taking advantage of new hardware and software, your community can:


Monitor Water Flow and Quality


Leak Detection


Predict Equipment Failure
Before it Happens


Use Future City Funds
for Other Pressing Needs


Reduce the Need for Repair Work


Lower Utility Costs

But you need to find a way to link your sensors and devices together. We can help with that.

Making Your City’s Infrastructure Upgrade Possible…

In order to function across a city-wide area, IoT-integrated sensors and devices need to be able to effectively communicate with each other. Ideally, the wireless technology that connects smart water devices would be powerful enough to cover large areas, durable enough to withstand the elements, and easy to install and replace as necessary.

We designed our GroundHog wireless antenna for projects like this, where it can be connected to underground devices in high-traffic areas. Its patent-pending dynamic tuning technology can work with any number of devices without any extra work from the user.

  • Doesn’t lose signal when covered with mud or debris
  • Rugged, low-profile design can withstand extreme heat, flooding,
    and long exposure to ultraviolet light
  • Run over by a 70-ton truck over 600,000 times
  • Doesn’t require any special tools to install, making it
    easy to replace over time
