Each year, an estimated 240,000 water main breaks occur in the U.S., according to the American Society of Civil Engineers.

Aging, leaking pipe contributes greatly to the issue of non-revenue water (NRW), or water that is pumped and then lost or unaccounted for. Globally, on average 34% of pumped water ends up as NRW, according to the International Energy Agency.
