3M partnering on water-leak detection products

3M announced Monday that it’s partnering with a German company on a portfolio of products to help utilities find leaks in underground water pipes.

The company, Sewerin, makes eclectro-acoustic water leak detectors — a sort of high-tech stethoscope for plumbers that can help technicians hear the slightest drip, drip, drip.

3M expects water leak-detection will become more important as municipalities and customers become aware of the importance of conserving water.

And how about when they find a leak? Maybe some 3M duct tape?
