I received a leak alert. What does base load mean?
The Smartvatten remote monitoring service tracks water consumption by the minute. Water consumption tends to decrease during the night, and regardless of the size of the property, there are times when no water should be consumed. However, when there’s a leak, water consumption is constant. Base load refers to the continuous flow of water, i.e. the size of the leak. In the alert, the size of the leak is expressed as l/min, which refers to litres consumed per minute. This figure can be used to determine the source of the leak, and the actions required to fix it.
