Pooled Energy has a new algorithm (under development) in the Network Operating Centre, which is inside the Internet Cloud, that looks out for pool leaks. These can be difficult to distinguish, especially in pools which have automatic top-up.

Below is shown a trend of a pool’s salinity over 5 weeks. In a normal pool, the salinity would typically be unchanged over this period.

The rate of loss is really high and this big pool is losing 12,000 litres of water a week. That is a serious leak.

Pooled Energy can monitor factors such as this for you, using an emerging set of artificial intelligence tools that continue to improve. These tools are still being refined as they do not yet allow for factors such as heavy rain or large amounts of splashing as yet, but they are useful in detecting the larger faults and will continue to improve with time.
