Cost-effective, easy-to-use level monitor provides early overflow detection.

ADS LLC has announced the release of the ADS ECHO — a self-contained, wireless sewer level monitoring solution that alerts operators via text or email when flow levels exceed critical thresholds.

The new monitor features ultrasonic sensing technology, providing high-accuracy focused level measurement from the top of the manhole into the pipe invert at distances up to 20 feet. ECHO is designed for ultralow power consumption, yielding up to a five-year battery life, and integrates with ADS’s intuitive FlowView web-based interface for data collection and analysis.

The ADS ECHO monitor gives utilities an economical level monitoring solution for early warning of preventable blockages, such as FOG, root intrusion, silt/sediment and debris. It provides continuous collections system monitoring, from the earliest detection of blockages to overflow notification. It can be installed in less than 10 minutes without the need for a manhole descent. It’s an intrinsically safe solution preventing fires and explosions in sewers, per NFPA 820. Deploying a fleet of dozens or hundreds of level monitors provides the flexibility to move units to multiple locations, such as problem sites where overflows occur or areas that require regular cleaning and maintenance.
