Mathematical Model for Detection of Leakage in Domestic Water Supply Systems by Reading Consumption from an Analogue Water Meter

Gal Oren and Nerya Y. Stroh

Abstract—In this article we introduce the principles to detect leakage using a mathematical model based on machine learning and domestic water consumption monitoring in real time. The model uses data which is measured from a water meter, analyzes the water consumption, and uses two criteria simultaneously: deviation from the average consumption, and comparison of steady water consumptions over a period of time. Simulation of the model on a regular household consumer was implemented on Antileaks – device that we have built that designed to transfer consumption information from an analogue water meter to a digital form in real time.

Index Terms—Detection, leakage, model, water.
