We save water. We save cities.
Watchtower is your eye in the sky helping you save money. Our proprietary robot scouts your pipes to find leaks before they become a big problem. It works in all pipe materials, detects leaks as small as 1 gallon per min and as accurately as 1 ft - all while mapping pipe networks in 3 dimensions.
