Engineers at a Yorkshire university have developed a pioneering detection system capable of driving down the national problem of leaking water pipes.
Initial tests carried out by Yorkshire Water show that the system developed at Sheffield University can identify damaged water pipes in a â€œreliable and accurateâ€ way.
The trial was led by Dr James Shucksmith, from the universityâ€™s department of civil and structural engineering.
He said: â€œWe are very excited by the results weâ€™ve achieved so far.
â€œWe are able to identify the location of leaks much more accurately and rapidly than existing systems are able to, meaning water companies will be able to save both time and money in carrying out repairs.
â€œThe system has delivered some very promising results at Yorkshire Water.â€
