Buoy Labs, creators of the Buoy™ single-point, AI-powered smart home water management device, and Delta Faucet Company, the manufacturer of Delta®, Brizo® and Peerless® products, announced a strategic relationship to advance smart home innovation. With category expertise and insights, Buoy Labs and Delta Faucet will work to elevate connected home water experiences, from whole-home water management to water savings and usage.

“As an innovation-driven company, we strive to work with pioneering organisations that share our passion to optimise and enhance the way consumers interact with and experience water,” said Bob Rodenbeck, senior director of research and development, Delta Faucet Company. “From the Delta Leak Detect device to our voice-activated kitchen faucet, our interest in water management and IoT solutions runs deep. Our relationship with Buoy Labs is exciting because it creates opportunities to unlock tremendous value for consumers to enjoy and preserve one of the world’s most valuable resources.”

A Michigan State University study1 showed that, within five years, nearly 40% of US households won’t be able to afford their water bill. Independent and Buoy Labs-collected data shows that preventable leaks are a significant contributor to this worsening problem, with 10% of all home water use wasted every month due to running toilets, leaky faucets, malfunctioning washers, and other leaks – all of which can be fixed with a single visit from a plumber.

“Success in consumer hardware often relies on the strength of an organisation’s partnerships,” said Keri Waters, co-founder and CEO of Buoy Labs. “To find a partner in Delta Faucet Company with over 75 years of experience as a global leader in the home water industry and a startup’s drive toward rapid innovation, is a tremendous gift.”

Buoy Labs and Delta Faucet Company began collaborating in 2017 in an effort to advance the category of in-home water management solutions. For more information, visit DeltaFaucet.com or Buoy.ai.
