Whether a leak is slowly dripping or suddenly gushing, Buoy’s alerts help you shut off your water remotely, or Buoy can shut it off automatically.
Enjoy your water
Using your Buoy's data means you can keep using water for the fun stuff — greens lawns or long showers — and be responsible without sacrificing your lifestyle.
Buoy is as easy as 1-2-3
1. Install and connect
Install Buoy on your main water line near your home's water shutoff valve. Buoy's sensors detect even the smallest water use, and when you connect it to WiFi, Buoy will send your water use data to the app.
2. Download and save
Homes typically lose 10 percent of their water to slow leaks, so you’ll see how your home stacks up. The app shows you how much water you use to shower, do laundry, and keep your lawn green, and you can shut off your water remotely or automatically.
3. Shut it off
When there’s a leak, you get an alert, so you can shut off your water remotely and contact a plumber from the app. Buoy can also shut off your water automatically, preventing costly water damage and giving you peace of mind.
Buoy's shutoff is a game changer:
Homeowners’ insurance companies pay $9.1 billion in water damage claims annually, and industry studies estimate that 93 percent of that could be avoided by using a leak detection device with remote shutoff.
