Water companies from Kuala Lumpur to London have installed i2O’s Advanced Pressure Management solution at the PRV (PRV Control) and seen dramatic results.
Currently, PRV Control has been installed in water networks in the UK, Malaysia, Spain, Turkey, Cyprus, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Colombia, Chile, Philippines and Thailand.
Here are a few cases that represent both some of our earliest installations (the UK’s Severn Trent Water) and our most recent (Malaysia’s Syabas Water).
Severn Trent Water – Reduced average pressures by 19%
In 2008, the UK’s Severn Trent Water installed the i2O Advanced Pressure Management solution at the PRV in six of its leakiest DMAs (District Metering Areas). The results:
- Average pressures were reduced 19%, from 54m to 43.8m, with proportional drop in leakage.
- Customer service was improved, and the solution responded well to demanding winter conditions by reducing the number of bursts during freezes and thaws.
Severn Trent’s conclusion:
The i2O solution has great potential for helping to achieve the leakage target more efficiently and at a lower cost than the current methods of mains replacement and leak detection and repair.

Syabas Water – Saving 40 million litres per day
Syabas Water in Selangor, Malaysia has implemented i2O’s Advanced Pressure Management solution at the PRV in 205 water zones. The results:
- Leakage saving of 40m litres of water per day
- A 40% reduction in pipe bursts

Veolia Water – Raising customer service despite unpredictable demand
One of Veolia Water’s districts in the UK suffered highly variable water usage due to a large golf course and periods of dry weather. Veolia turned to i2O to help maintain customer service during periods of high demand, while avoiding over-pressuring the network, causing excess leakage and bursts. The results:
- Using i2O, Veolia Water was able to maintain customer service, eliminating customer complaints and associated costs while at the same time reducing leakage
- Veolia Water has extended its use of PRV Control across other parts of its network to cut leakage and reduce burst frequency.
