The Water Main Break Tool gives you the ability to locate and record water main breaks quickly and efficiently - allowing better visualization of water pipe conditions. This tool is located under the “Water Tools” tab in your AssetAlly application.
When attaching a 'Main Breaks' icon to your water main, select the 'Add Break' button. Once the tool is activated, click on the area in your viewer that you wish to identify as a water main break.
After you have selected the area on the pipe that the incident took place, a dashboard will appear.
On the dashboard, select the ‘Breaks’ tab located under “General Pipe Data.”
When editing in the “Breaks” form, you will be able to classify the date and location of the break. You can also add a 'Break ID' number and other important information.
Once you’re satisfied with the information you’ve entered, uploaded any pertinent photos via the 'Add Image' button, click ‘Save’.
If you’d like to update the status of the main break event, select the pipe section or the water drop marker to bring you back to the attribute dashboard.
With breaks being added to both map and dashboard, you'll start building a clearer picture of pipe condition.
This is a general rundown of how the tool works, but please contact a member of our team if you have any questions!
