ADS Introduces New Level Monitor

Sept. 27, 2016
The ADS ECHO offers early overflow detection, surface installation & more

ADS LLC announced the release of the ADS ECHO—a self-contained, wireless sewer level monitoring solution that alerts operators via text or email messages when flow levels exceed critical thresholds.

The monitor features ultrasonic sensing technology, providing high-accuracy, focused level measurement from the top of the manhole into the pipe invert at distances up to 20 ft. The ADS ECHO is designed for ultra-low power consumption, yielding up to a five-year battery life, and integrates with ADS’s intuitive, FlowView web-based interface for data collection and analysis.

The new monitor provides utilities with an economical level monitoring solution to provide early warning of preventable blockages, such as fats, oils and greases; root intrusion; silt or sediment; and debris. 

The ADS ECHO also offers the following features:

  • Continuous collection system monitoring, from the earliest detection of blockages to overflow notification;
  • The ability to deploy a fleet of dozens or hundreds of level monitors with the flexibility to move units to multiple locations, such as problem sites where overflows occur or areas that require regular cleaning and maintenance;
  • Easy installation in less than 10 minutes with no manhole descent required; and
  • An safe solution preventing fires and explosions in sewers, per NFPA 820.

ADS launched the monitor at the Water Environment Federation’s Technical Exhibition and Conference, WEFTEC 2016. For more information on the ADS ECHO level monitor, visit
