Phyn’s New Smart Water Sensor Could Save You From a Busted Pipe

The Phyn Plus (2nd gen) smart water sensor installed outside.

With winter just around the corner, it’s time to start watching out for frozen and busted pipes. That’s why Phyn is launching an upgraded, second-generation version of its Phyn Plus smart water sensor. This new sensor can detect leaks, measure water usage, and automatically shut off your water in an emergency. Oh, and it’s a whopping $200 cheaper than the original model!

At just $500, the new Phyn Plus is a direct competitor to the Moen Flo. It measures water pressure to intelligently track water usage, and can even identify which fixtures or appliances in your home are active. Plus, the Phyn Plus can notify you of potential leaks or plumbing issues, and even shut off your water in the event of a catastrophic leak or burst pipe.

But like most smart water sensors, the Phyn Plus can be a bit difficult to install. You need to place it at your main water line, which means cutting and soldering some very important pipe. Also, you need to route a power cable to the Phyn Plus—quite a challenge! I suggest hiring a plumber to get this job done.

You can order the second-gen Phyn Plus for just $499 at Phyn’s website. Bear in mind that your utility provider may offer rebates for Phyn Plus and other leak-detecting smart water sensors.

Phyn Plus (2nd Gen)

The second generation Phyn Plus is $200 cheaper than the original model. It analyses water pressure to measure your water usage, identify your fixtures and appliances, and warn you of leaky or busted pipes. Order one now to get ready for the winter.
