In this paper, the practical implementation of an innovative time domain reflectometry (TDR)-based system for leak detection in underground water pipes is presented. This system, which had been previously developed and experimented on pilot plants, has now been installed (for the first time) on a large scale, in 10 km of pipes. The present work describes all the practical aspects and technical details (from the design to the functional tests), related to the implementation of the system.
