When it comes to controlling pipeline leakage, there are a variety of methods to choose from. The main methods include pipeline leakage detection, upgrading of the pipeline network, implementation of zonal metering management and increased inspection of underground facilities. Only through a multi-pronged approach can good results be achieved.


1, pipeline leakage detection is the use of a variety of advanced pipeline leak detector on the underground pipeline for a planned, purposeful leakage investigation, and find out the leakage point. This is very effective in controlling and reducing the leakage of underground pipelines, especially in most areas of China's current pipeline network leakage is serious, vigorously promote and strengthen the underground pipeline leakage detection work is particularly important.

2, for buried for a long time underground pipe network, we can purposefully and systematically choose new pipe material for renewal and transformation, in order to reduce the leakage of pipe network. Regardless of the material of the pipeline, after a long time buried underground, will be affected by the foundation sinking, traffic load and geological conditions, which will lead to pipeline corrosion and damage. Therefore, upgrading is inevitable.

3, we can implement zonal metering management by zoning the enterprise pipeline network, real-time monitoring of the flow of pipeline network in each zone. This allows pressure management, statistics and flow analysis, and then quickly and accurately locate the leakage site, repair the leakage point, so as to achieve the purpose of reducing the amount of leakage water loss, leakage control.

4, increase the inspection of underground pipelines and ancillary facilities is also very important. This initiative mainly refers to increase the underground pipelines, fire hydrants and sludge discharge valves and other ancillary facilities of the inspection efforts to avoid the occurrence of pipelines and ancillary facilities due to a long time running water and no supervision phenomenon.

In summary, by adopting these measures, we can better control pipeline leakage, reduce resource wastage, protect the environment and ensure water supply safety.
