Abstract

Every year water damage from leaks in water supply systems cost property owners thousands of dollars. This damage is one of the most expensive costs amongst residential homes in the United States. Insurance companies pay more than $3 billion a year for flood-related damages in household. These water leaks can occur at any given time and it is difficult to detect by just viewing the exterior of the piping. Our project team was sponsored by Ayotte Plumbing, Heating, and Air Conditioning. Dean Ayotte, the president of Ayotte Plumbing, asked the team to find a non-invasive tool that helps detect leaks in water supply systems before the leaks occur and prevent damage to a property.
