Leaks and flow

Detecting leaks early helps you avoid damaging your building from leaking water and water waste, so you can find the leak in time to fix it.

Sensors used: FlowMoniSpot

Alarm setup:
Configurations: The included alarms are added automatically if you select the unit type "water pipe" when the unit is registered on ReCalc. No other configurations are needed

Alarms included

  • Leaks: The leak alarm works by monitoring whether the water consumption goes to zero at least once a day. We can detect leaks from about one drop per second, corresponding to four liters per day.
  • Missing flow: If it's difficult to identify any flow in the pipe, you will be warned. Alarms are still raised if they are detected. Missing flow can be due to a sensor installation failure, or because the temperature of the water in the pipe is close to the temperature of the surrounding air, which makes the alarm less sensitive.
  • Missing data: If there has been a data drop out (big enough to make the leak detection invalid) no (false) alarms will be generated, and you will be warned.
