That leaky toilet may not seem like a big deal, but according to water-sensor maker Phyn, wasted water from one faulty toilet flapper could fill a 30,000-gal. swimming pool in just one month. That’s why Kohler and Phyn teamed up to create H2Wise+, which tracks usage patterns, alerts home-owners to leaks, and automatically shuts off water in emergencies. Installed on main water lines, it blends cutting-edge sensors with machine-learning technology. By measuring changes in pressure 240 times every second, Phyn CEO Ryan Kim says, it can match a specific “fingerprint” to each water fixture in a home. That helps you save money while conserving an increasingly precious resource.
