Leak audit and repair tool

Designed with repair teams in mind, in this mode two FIDO<1s work wirelessly with the FIDO smartphone app as coordinated leak noise detectors to generate points of evidence and proof of leak resolution.

Two devices are placed directly on an exposed pipe in a ‘dry dig’ which quickly tell the dig gang which way to expand their trench to find the leak. 

The ability to do this in real-time using FIDO AI via the FIDO app has the potential to save countless hours of admin and duplication in the office and on site.

This mode can also be used to take an audio recording so FIDO AI can confirm that the leak has been repaired. A powerful part of your audit tool for leak reduction.

How is it used?

Two FIDO<1s and two FIDO holders are supplied as part of the FIDO Dig Repair Kit along with a power bank, charger and cables, all in a robust lockable case.

The FIDO<1s are place inside the holders, which provide secure points of contact on the convex surface of the pipe.

Additional features in leak repair and audit mode

  • Easy and quick to deploy
    Just place the FIDO<1s in the supplied holders and put them on the pipe
  • Multiple pipe contact points to allow lateral and radial sampling
    The holders provide perfect points of contact for FIDO<1s tri-axial sensors


How are the water leakage points of interest reported by FIDO for audit purposes?

The minute FIDO AI investigates a file, it gives it a unique ID code number. Any subsequent data collected by FIDO<1s in relation to that leak is automatically associated with the ID. Other data inputs, such as dig and investigation reports from contractors, can also be linked right up to the point the repair technician takes a final reading with a FIDO<1 in leak repair mode. If this confirms that the leak’s acoustic signature is no longer present it closes the loop on the leak’s audit trail from first detection up to completion.

Is the FIDO Dig Repair kit different to the FIDO Hardware Kit?

The FIDO Dig Repair Kit is a simplified version of our FIDO<1 standard Hardware Kit. It comes with two devices with specially designed holders that can be used on exposed pipework or on a nearby asset. This allows repair teams confronted with a ‘dry hole’ to work out which direction to expand the dig area to find the leak. The FIDO<1s can also be used after repair in order to show that the leak has been fixed. This completes the FIDO audit trail.

What are the functions that support an audit of the end-to-end process?

The FIDO end-to-end reporting and audit process uses all aspects of FIDO AI analysis and FIDO<1 points of evidence collecting to provide audit data. We also integrate other sources of data such as flow data, pressure data and dig/repair data to show a comprehensive ‘life-cycle’ of the leak from first detection through to repair.
