Large buildings with significant water use may have a difficult time identifying and pinpointing leaks without submeters. In smaller or less complex buildings, it’s possible to quickly identify and resolve leaks without installing new equipment. Taking weekly readings from existing meters and submeters is one common approach to staying ahead of leaks. When you see unexplained spikes in consumption, investigate for potential leaks. Alternatively, some buildings may choose to install automated leak detection technologies that issue alerts when there is a potential problem.
