Our Project

The current products on the market for detecting leaks and bursts within the home plumbing system are inefficient and costly; whereas WaterMania minimizes water damage from pipe bursts in a cost-efficient and effective manner. WaterMania also allows the user to reduce water consumption by displaying and analyzing data for the user within a connected android app.

Water consumption is detected from our custom built electromagnetic sensor. This data is then transmitted to a raspberry pi to handle logic as well as to communicate with our servers and the user’s android app. Lastly a solenoid valve is implemented in the main water line of the owner’s plumbing system to automatically shut-off water flow in the event of a pipe burst or recognized leak.
