Pressure control is the simplest and most immediate method of saving water and reducing leakage. The requirement for pressure changes during the day and night, and by controlling the pressure at the peak times, huge water savings can be made.
For example, the demand for pressure is likely to be highest when people are getting up in the morning and lowest in the middle of the night when people are sleeping. An effective pressure control strategy will help to save water by reducing pressure when demand is low (e.g. at night) whilst reducing the quantity of water lost through leakage. Pressure controlling equipment can also help to extend asset life and reduce burst frequency, whilst providing a more consistent service to the customer.
