How do you find leaks/thieft in an aging water system?
We are an old service district and it appears we only sell 2 out of every 3 gallons we pump up from the well. I suspect some is being stolen (agriculture, water trucks, residential) and some lost from leaks. We had a leak dectector company listen for leaks and we fixed the several large ones they found. We have some data- what should we look for?

What data do you monitor? do you do district metering?
If you have flow and volume data you could look for peaks or increasing trends in the different sections of your network.
FluksAqua has a leak detection app (see the APPS menu), might be worth reaching out to them.
