FIDO AI - Software for Accurate AI Water Leak Detection
FIDO is more than just the sum of its parts. It is a whole process solution to leak detection which dovetails seamlessly with all your existing kit, or even no kit at all, to deliver instant, accurate and auditable results at all levels of your organisation. At the heart of everything FIDO does is our elegant patented algorithm, so uniquely attuned to the data trail left only by real leaks that nothing beats it for speed and accuracy. It’s the algorithm that kick starts FIDO’s 3-step detection process by automatically analysing sensor data to generate points of interest.
Find the leaks that matter.

Technology is transforming water company operations. Extensive investment in monitoring and sensors has given organisations more information than ever about the way their networks are performing.
But translating this deluge of data into continuous performance improvement is getting harder just as the environmental, social and financial stakes are getting higher.
When it comes to managing water loss, differing global imperatives and investment levels have led to a complex mix of technologies and systems, sometimes even within the same organisation.
As the imperative of climate change grips governments, shareholders and consumers, the pressure to stem the loss of drinking water from distribution networks is growing.
But despite water providers’ enthusiastic embrace of detection technology, locating the actual source of a water leak quickly and accurately remains stubbornly hard.
The acoustic sensor is the go-to proven technology for raising the alarm when leaks occur. But even for networks well-covered by sensors, their files need time-consuming manual sifting for already hard-pressed teams. And you still have to find the leak.
Detecting leaks is important but, like pressure management, it’s just one technique among many used by network analysts to drive down water loss from distribution systems.
For analysts, smart sensors have been both a technical blessing and an added workload. Downloading overnight sensor alarms, including false positives, makes time-consuming human analysis essential.
But, however expert, people are not machines and they can’t be right every time, leaving a margin of error which can be as de-motivating as it is frustrating.
More innovation, more training, more kit. It seems with every technological advancement another piece of essential hardware clamours for space in an engineer’s toolkit.
But when it comes to leakage detection, even with the benefit of acoustic sensors, nailing leak position clearly enough to raise a dig order comes down to old-fashioned hard work and experience. And, more often than not, a listening stick.
Here at FIDO, we don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater. Working hand-in-hand with leakage technicians we’ve brought the humble listening stick into the 21st century.
FIDO’s deep-learning algorithm is 92% accurate (and increasing daily), fully hardware agnostic and compliant with industry data sharing protocols.
Trained using a growing library of over 1.7 million samples, FIDO is already hundreds of times faster than humans at identifying real leaks and improves as it learns.
Over time, FIDO AI evolves as new analytical functions are added in response to client demand.
