Pressure management can be defined as the practice of managing water systems pressures at optimum service levels while ensuring sufficient and efficient supply. The positive effects of pressure management are to reduce real water losses, reducing unnecessary or excessive pressures, as well as eliminating the fluctuation of strong or transient pressures. These factors frequently cause new leaks and pipe failures within water distribution networks. The direct relationship between the flow of leaks and the pressure means that the pressure modulation effect has an immediate impact on the amount of water supplied in a sector, the savings are directly proportional to the pressure reduction, so the savings in daytime hours is very important, however, at nighttime when consumption decreases this saving is maximized, representing on average up to 20% of the expenditure supplied before modulation.
