In the quest to maintain effective and efficient water management, water meter technology has come to the fore, offering robust solutions for monitoring and leak detection. This article looks into area-velocity sensors and leak monitoring systems.


The AV|Max from ADS is an area-velocity sensor for the ADS TRITON+ monitors. The wetted sensor is installed directly in the pipe flow to provide consistent, high-quality data collection capability. Its low-profile, impact-resistant polycarbonate housing with recessed sensors brings new levels of durability in sewer flows. The sensor design is tested and proven to collect accurate and consistent data in depths from 1 to 60 inches and in flows of up to 30 feet per second. In areas of intermittent no-flows (dry-pipe) the company recommends the sensor can be used in combination with one of their non-contact sensors. The sensor measures four key parameters: depth — using ultrasonic UpDepth, depth — pressure, velocity — continuous wave ultrasonic Doppler, and water temperature. 877-237-9585;

Mueller Water Products EchoShore-DX 

The EchoShore-DX leak monitoring system from Mueller Water Products has expanded to include the new valve-based sensors to complement the existing hydrant-based leak detection system. Both sensors are rugged and non-invasive, and they work together seamlessly. Ramp up your reliability with up to 10-year battery life and 5G network compatibility. Get coverage where you need it, and detect, locate and monitor leaks before they form. 800-423-1323;
