Prev leak smart manhole covers


South African Townships and Informal settlements suffer from repeat sewage blockages that produce excessive overflows of raw sewage that bring environmental pollution, health risks and contamination of fresh water resources. TPS offers smart polymer manhole covers that are fitted with an ultra sensor, sigfox module and microcontroller to detect and report sewage blockages on our progressive web application. This allows communities, businesses and municipalities to have an early detection system that notifies them of sewage blockages that cause pollution, health risks and contamination of water resources as a result of overflow.
