Water monitoring service for single family homes
Uponors’ smart water assistant to tackle European water wastage and protect homes.
The World Health Organisation predicts that by 2025 half of the world’s population will be living in water-stressed areas. It is estimated that 20-40 percent of Europe’s available water is being wasted due to leakages, unnecessary irrigation, dripping taps, and a lack of water saving technologies (source: European Commission). Uponor aims to help tackle this catastrophic water wastage with the introduction of Phyn Plus into Europe following a successful rollout in North America. The technology behind Phyn Plus is the result of nearly a decade of research and development. Phyn is a joint venture between smart home technology leader Belkin International and Uponor.

The importance of accessible water for all of us is rising. Accessible clean water resources are under increasing stress from various causes like ubanisation, growing world population and climate change.
The water sector needs to provide safe and accessible water also in the future
- Water efficiency and ensuring capacity will rise in importance
- Investments and operational resources will have to be even more efficiently deployed
- Water resources, utilisation and distribution will become more regulated, not less
- New water quality and volume monitoring technologies will be used
In Uponor, we believe that access to clean, safe and affordable water is a basic human right. We offer services to help water utilites securing their water supply. Continuous, real time monitoring with early warning allows network owners to take action immediately upon detecting anomalies.

Welcome to Upocity – where real time water monitoring brings leakages and water quality incidents under control
Upocity, a municipality of 60,000 inhabitants, used to have significant challenges with non-revenue water. Non-revenue water accounted for 27% of the total water production per annum. 18% of the total water production was lost due to leakages that cost Upocity 648,000€ every year. Every month there were several sudden pipe bursts, resulting in significant unplanned maintenance and repair costs - not to mention the disruption in water supply.
However, managing non-revenue water, and especially leakages, was not the only challenge for Upocity. The water engineers were uncertain about the quality of their water. Laboratory tests were conducted, but deemed time-consuming and expensive without providing real-time understanding of water quality. Over 50% of water quality incidents in Upocity were a result of water distribution related incidents. Being able to ensure the safety of end-users was a priority to Upocity water engineers, but they felt the current approach could be improved.
Thanks to Uponor real-time Water Monitoring Services, today Upocity is able to manage a distribution network, in which leaks and water quality is under control. If you want to find out how, subscribe here to read part 2 of the Upocity story.
