Los Angeles January 8, 2021 — Phyn, the leader in intelligent water solutions, today announced a partnership with Kohler Co., a global leader in design and innovation of kitchen and bath products to launch co-branded water monitoring products in North America. This endeavor will see two “Kohler powered by Phyn” products come to market in 2021, – the KOHLER Whole Home Water Monitor Powered by Phyn – a DIY unit and a Pro version with an automatic shut off.
These products represent a continued evolution of both companies’ focus on water safety and peace of mind. Both products leverage Phyn’s patented, best-in-class, high-definition pressure wave analysis to monitor water flow to immediately notify a homeowner if a leak is detected anywhere in the home and to provide detailed insights into how each fixture uses water. The DIY version mounts under a single sink and can be easy installed by a homeowner. The Pro variation is installed at a water main, either inside or outside the home, and can mitigate costly damage through an automatic water shutoff feature.
The collaboration between Kohler and Phyn joins leading experts in smart water technology and smart kitchen and bath and provides a wide reach within both trade and consumer audiences.
“We feel that the like-minded passions of both brands offer great opportunities” says Ryan Kim, CEO of Phyn. “The Kohler brand is one of the most respected and recognizable in the world and will help to further expand Phyn’s mission to ‘empower the world to embrace water’ as we work together to help protect, conserve and enhance our everyday experience with water, our most precious natural resource. “
