Option Wastewater EN 1610
Menu-guided test procedures for carrying out pressure tests on wastewater pipelines and manholes in accordance with the regulations EN 1610 (Europe), DWA-A 139 (Germany) and DWA-M 149-6 (Germany). This option includes the following menu items in the device: Wastewater Procedure Air : Carry out the tests with the test medium air in accordance with the regulations mentioned. EDS2-P 1 bar pressure sensor required. Wastewater Procedure water: Carry out the tests with the test medium water in accordance with the regulations mentioned. EDS2 level probe and EDS2 dosing valve required. The menu item "Wastewater Procedure Water" will only be completed in Q2/2023 and can be installed via an update of the device without additional booking as soon as it is available.
Testing of wastewater pipelines
In addition to drinking water pipelines and pipelines for energy supply (e.g. gas, district heating, etc.), wastewater pipelines are also part of the important infrastructure. It is therefore not surprising that every pipeline, sewer or manhole within the wastewater network should be tested for leaks before it is put into operation.
Installation and testing of wastewater pipes and sewers are regulated by the European standard EN 1610, which also requires a final leak test of newly built or renewed wastewater pipelines.
In addition to EN 1610, the DWA as a national association in the field of wastewater (similar to the DVGW) has published the DWA-A 139 worksheet, which specifies further requirements for the construction and final leak testing of wastewater pipelines.
The DWA has issued the DWA-M 149 series of worksheets for the "Recording and assessment of the condition of drainage systems located outside buildings". Part 6 (DWA-M 149-6) describes how the condition of drainage systems in operation can be assessed by means of pressure tests.
All regulations stipulate either a leak test with the test medium air or with the test medium water. Since the procedures differ fundamentally in the process and the measurement technology, the procedures are divided into different menu items in the smart memo.
Option Wastewater EN 1610
Menu-guided test sequences for carrying out leak tests on wastewater pipes can be installed for the smart memo via the Wastewater EN 1610 option. Within the menu item, it can be selected whether testing is to be carried out in accordance with the requirements of EN 1610, DWA-A 139 or DWA-M 149-6. The smart memo guides you through the test in an automated process, displays measurement data and progressions , saves and documents all relevant test data.
The following menu items are installed when the option Wastewater EN 1610 is activated:
- Wastewater Procedure Air
Carry out the tests with the test medium air in accordance with the regulations mentioned. EDS2-P 1 bar pressure sensor is required.
- Wastewater Procedure Water
Carry out the tests with the test medium water in accordance with the regulations mentioned. EDS2 level probe and EDS2 dosing pump are required.
The menu item "Wastewater Procedure Water" will only be completed in Q2/2023 and can be installed via an update of the unit without additional booking as soon as it is available.

With the help of the appropriate connection accessories, the air procedure can be easily carried out with the smart memo. The compressed air hose is connected (possibly via suitable adapters) to the bypass of a test sealing pad. Above ground, the hose is connected to the test fitting to which the pressure sensor of the smart memo is also connected. Suitable connections and ball valves for pressure build-up and pressure reduction are located on the test fitting. In this way, all phases of the test can be carried out via the test fitting and the smart memo.
