Company Background

The company was established in 2009.

Detailed Technology Description 

  • AquaTrip is permanently installed on a water line and the technology monitors the flow of water over time during specific set times that are predetermined by the customer.
  • If the AquaTrip detects a leak, it will shut the water off and stops water wastage.
  • The technology has the ability to distinguish between normal usage and leaks. AquaTrip works silently in the background and most users do not know that it has been installed.
  • AquaTrip does not alter consumption patterns – it only eliminates water wastage.
  • The AquaTrip protects the building from both unknown and known water wastage.
  • AquaTrip reduces customer’s water consumption by up to 70%.
  • AquaTrip is perfectly suited for high leak-probability areas (toilets, irrigation lines, kitchenettes & basement taps)
  • AquaTrip’s complementary solutions further enhance our success in eliminating water wastage (occupancy sensors, geyser solutions, Wireless wetness detectors, GSM controllers, etc.)
