iQuarius™ Mobile Water Network Leak Detection

Water Utility distribution networks typically require a tremendous investment in leak detection equipment, which is often cumbersome and complex, requiring specialist skills and experience to use.

The Aquarius Spectrum iQuarius™ mobile solution is an affordable and easy to use system which utilises cutting edge, patented technology, packed into a small, easy to carry kit. It includes all the equipment necessary to carry out an independent water leak detection survey and is suitable for all users; from beginner to full-time professionals.

The iQuarius™ system consists of a small device which connects to a smartphone and utilises a dedicated Android app. The app features a cloud-based analytics system which performs most of the operations and audit automatically.

All data generated by the solution is recorded locally and analysed immediately by Aquarius Spectrum’s servers; it is then available for viewing by any web browser. The compact mobile sensors combine with top of the line analysis software to successfully tackle all water leakage challenges. iQuarius™ will easily perform pipe listening, survey and correlation tasks.
