Leak Detection Services

FMV Group logo


FMV Group is not just a measurement service company, we also offer leak detection services to Water Providers and Private Side consumers via our own leakage operations company Metering and Leak Detection Services (MLD).

The knowledge and experience held within FMV Group allows MLD to offer a unique approach to leak location and repair. Using the metering services demonstrated above MLD are able to target leakage more effectively by deploying our metering experience in the first instance, verifying key strategic meters:

  • Verify DI and other strategic meters to accurately balance networks and identify leakage.
  • Target areas more effectively to avoid sending teams to look for ‘phantom’ leakage.
  • High standard of training and monitoring of operational staff
  • Deployment of various equipment to aid the process and assist teams to reach the standards set by the client and internal matrices.
  • Constantly searching for new and innovative processes and equipment to push the standard higher for leak detection
  • Deploying skills across entire supply network including, abstraction, DI and Trunk Mains.

MLD believe that the route to successful leak detection is partly through the use of the best most suitable equipment but primarily it takes the correct working attitude and persistence of its operational staff to work with clients and FMV metering products to target the areas with true leaks and then to be relentless in the pursuit of answers.


Accuracy of flow data allows the efficient targeting of areas, removing the risk of discovering dry holes and wasting precious resources in areas with ‘phantom’ leaks.

MLD recruit the best teams available to work with clients, not only do these teams have a wealth of experience in leak detection, they have a passion. Leak detection is more than a job for MLD operational staff it’s an obligation as workers in the industry to reduce water losses. MLD will go to great lengths to drive leakage down for both clients and the wider consumer.
