Apparent losses due to domestic water meter under-registration in South Africa
Couvelis, FA; van Zyl, JE;
Publisher: Water Research Commission (WRC)
This study investigated the extent of apparent losses due to water meter under-registration in South Africa. This was done by first estimating the under-registration of new meters due to on-site leakage, and then the additional under-registration due to meter aging. The... View more
