This Buoy is for builders who want to see if Buoy is right for their projects. It does not include installation, but does include a lifetime subscription to our data service.
Buoy has a rechargeable battery or, if it will be installed indoors, you can plug it in with the power cord (included). A waterhorn is helpful when space on the main water line is tight; this method of installing Buoy only requires a pipe gap length of approximately 4”.
