As a building manager in New York, Greg Capizzi often had to deal with a common problem: leaky toilets, which not only waste water, but can cause costly damage to units below the faulty throne. That’s what inspired Capizzi, founder and CEO of Water Automation, to create aquaHALT, which detects leaks and shuts off water before any damage is done. The patented shut-off valve system, which easily attaches directly to a toilet’s water supply hose, immediately stops the flow as soon as its battery-powered sensor detects abnormal levels of moisture. Installing the device can even lower your insurance premiums.
