Water detection installation
Within excess of 20 years of experience in the water detection installation field, Aquentis are uniquely placed to offer the full “turn-key” package. From the simplest single-zone system right up to a complex networked leak detection system. Water leak detection is quickly becoming far more popular in commercial and industrial environments with the domestic market not far behind. However, this popularity doesn’t mean that anyone can install a system and get it right. We are often called to carry out system maintenance on a system only to find that the sensors are not installed in the right place or are not connected at all. There is also the odd occasion where the sensor type is not suitable for the application.
Just one single drop of water in the wrong place can cause disruption to your business by loss of data or power. Why entrust your water detection installation to the untrained?
We are able to offer the full installation of your system from inception to completion and any stage in between. Key stages are:
The stage where we find out what your requirements are. What the water detection system is required to do on detecting a water leak. This would normally be things like sounding an alarm, signalling a Building Management System (BMS) or possibly shutting a water valve.
Not always required if working to the existing design of a consultant on a new build but highly recommended for occupied buildings. Especially if multi-tenanted. This is where we survey your premises to ascertain what you want to protect and where this asset is located. Where possible sources of a leak are located in relationship to this asset and the likelihood of a leak.
Type of protection
Once we know what we’re protecting and from what, we can select the most appropriate sensing medium to achieve this. Often a mix of water detection sensing cables and probes are used to give the best coverage. Panel selection and the number of zones required are also determined at this stage.
We provide a proposal and quotation detailing the works required, the equipment needed and details of how the installation will be carried out.
Agree on a date and attend the site to carry out the water detection installation in line with our quotation. Generally, the panels will always be installed before installing the water detection sensors. This is primarily so that at the end of the working day the sensors can be left monitored. This would give a warning if they are damaged by other trades which might be working in the same location.
Once installed each sensing device will get tested for correct operation. Any problems identified will be corrected. At this point, any monitoring equipment such as BMS or other technical alarm systems can be connected by their relative engineers.
Test an agreed percentage of the installed sensors in the presence of the clients representative. Monitoring systems will also be tested at the same time. Fill in commissioning documentation, provide instruction and training to the clients representative. Hand over the system.
