About Buoy Labs

At Buoy Labs we are changing the way people manage their household water use. Did you know that every house leaks about 10% of its overall water? That’s enough to fill an in-ground swimming pool, every year. Our first product, Buoy™, is the first smart home product that gives homeowners a complete real-time picture of their water use, notifications when they have leaks, and the ability to remotely shut off their water. We’re making it simple to comply with changing water regulations, save money on your water bill, and avoid household water damage from leaks.
