Water Just Got Smarter With Sonic
– the automatic water shut-off valve

Aquilar Ltd are the authorised UK & Ireland distributor for Sonic – the smartest ultrasonic automatic water leak detection shut-off system ever created for the home or business.

Sonic Ultrasonic Automatic Water Leak Detection Shut-Off System
Pipe leaks are a very real problem with over £657 million worth of domestic insurance claims made every year to repair and replace property damaged by water leaks. The winter months can also pose an additional threat when the temperature drops. Poorly-insulated pipes will freeze causing water to expand. The build-up of water pressure between the ice blockage and closed tap can cause the pipe to burst. A burst pipe can release up to half a tonne of water per hour. In fact, water leaks cause more damage to UK property than any other factor – more than all house fires, explosions and burglaries combined. (ABl figures)

Sonic detects leaks anywhere in the home and shuts off the water supply fast – with cutting-edge SmartShield technology that scans plumbing for problems up to a hundred thousand times a day, protecting property as well as helping to save water and money. In the event of an issue, Sonic will send an alert to users of its mobile app and property dashboard, whilst automatically shutting-off the water supply to prevent a water leak. The valve can be controlled from the app at any time with full manual override or you can let Sonic respond to potential problems with smart actions that can be customised to suit individual lifestyles. Sonic is the only product in the UK to use ultrasonic technology to monitor water use, detecting any anomalies using its AI platform.

The dedicated Sonic app also shows how much water is being used at each point in the home. Sonic’s machine-learning engine recognises the different applications through their unique ‘signature’ helping users to understand water usage in order to manage consumption.

People can now protect properties, businesses, homes and families with Sonic!
