Quickly identify illegal or unauthorised water extractions

Illegal or unauthorised water consumption is a criminal offence and represents a considerable cost to utilities in terms of lost time and revenue. Untrained operators illegally extracting water are also at risk of damaging the network, potentially creating transient surges that can cause bursts and discoloration. These thefts of unauthorised water have been notoriously difficult to detect, let alone prove. With water prices escalating, the lengths that some users will go to obtain free water is only set to escalate.

Real-time data can instantly alert on illegal extraction

Our cutting-edge smart sensor technology can monitor entire networks of infrastructure and quickly identify unauthorised use of water. The ADARI portal and dashboard converts sensor data into actionable intelligence, which can accurately pinpoint where water is being illegally extracted in real-time. This data enables you to immediately deploy technicians to specific locations to investigate and take appropriate action when needed. Minimising the time between occurrence, action and enforcement will act as a deterrent for illegal usage.

Orbis standpipes and hydrants prevent illegal extraction

Our smart standpipe technologies are fitted with double check valves (DCVs) which prevent backflow of water, so water usage calculations are accurate. Orbis’ smart hydrant technology also automatically records illegal water use, providing data on times and consumption.
