Leif Koch specializes in buried water pipe leak detection and localization, and serves institutions in Denmark and worldwide to meet the ever-increasing need to reduce non revenue water.
Leif Koch is the oldest leak detection company in Denmark, and works with municipalities to implement innovative strategies for reducing non revenue water developed over more than 40 years of operation.
In addition to leak detection and localization services, Leif Koch sells leak detection instruments and offers training courses to ensure their proper use. The company also finds any pipes and valves not recorded in the official map of a municipality’s water network, provides ways to adjust and control them, and updates the water network map.
In 2009, Leif Koch developed an innovative online tool called “ALMOS LEAK”, which uses unique algorithms to interpret and transmit information received from noise detectors placed on water pipes to an online map of the water network. ALMOS LEAK allows for quick and efficient leak detection and repair, as users can view the collected data online and determine whether a leak exists anywhere in a given water network.
Our innovative strategies for leak detection and localization reduce costs and save water resources for municipalities.
Leif Koch utilizes the most advanced instruments and technologies and continually trains its staff in their use.

Leif Koch is part of a collaborative project that combines the technologies and services of the most innovative companies in the Danish Water Technology Industry. We work to reduce water loss on pipeline systems by creating new, innovative technologies.
In 2013, Leif Koch participated in a project in Rajkot, India, in collaboration with DHI and Grundfos. We worked to improve and stabilize the local water supply, as water scarcity was so extreme that Rajkot inhabitants only had running water for a few hours each day. Leif Koch provided leak detection services for the Rajkot […]
In 2014, Leif Koch, DHI, and Ramböll partnered with the Taipei Office of the Trade Council of Denmark and the Taiwan Water Corporation for a pilot project to reduce water loss in Taiwan. These organizations sent a team of leakage engineers and operators to work at a test site on Chijin Island. With the rising […]
25-50% of all distributed water globally is lost or never invoiced due to illegal connections, inaccurate billing systems, inaccurate metering, leakages, deteriorating infrastructure and wrong water pressure management etc. – or in short Non-Revenue Water (NRW). This white paper examines how water utilities can improve efficiency and meet future demand for water by reducing Non-Revenue Water.
In the capital region of Denmark, they listen carefully to their water distribution networks. The country’s two largest water suppliers, HOFOR (Greater Copenhagen Utility) and Novafos, have transformed parts of their water distribution networks around Copenhagen into full-scale demonstration areas with state-of-the-art technology
