The Buoy device connects to your home’s water line, and sends information to the Buoy app. From there, you’ll see where you’re using water, and can shut off water remotely if there’s a leak. Peace of mind, predictable bills – and you get to keep your lawn.
A qualified plumber will install your Buoy at your home’s main water line, which sits after the water main on the street but before water enters your home.Find an Installer
A plumber can install your Buoy inside or outside your house, but it must always be accessible. It can be installed vertically or horizontally, with copper pipe or flexible (tubing). If you’re short on space between pipes, you can use the optional waterhorn accessory.

The app is where the data comes to life. See how many gallons you use to shower and what you use to keep your lawn green. Chances are, you’ll see something else: leaks. The app will show the 10 percent of water that homes typically lose to slow leaks, and if there’s a sudden or potentially damaging leak, you can shut off your water from a button in the app.
Game Changing Alerts:
Homeowners’ insurance companies pay $9.1 billion in water damage annually, and industry studies estimate that 93 percent of that could be avoided by using a leak detection device with remote shutoff.
