“Phyn Plus is the first of several anticipated launches into the intelligent water category for us,” says Mayne. “Beyond bringing Phyn Plus successfully to market this spring through our Uponor Pro Squad, Chad will also create a strategic roadmap focused on partnership, technologies and services that will help define Uponor as a leader in intelligent water solutions for consumers and our industry.”
Phyn was formed in 2016 as a joint venture between Uponor and Belkin International. Phyn Plus is a smart water monitoring system that automatically measures changes in water pressure in a building’s plumbing system, 240 times per second. By doing so, it identifies and alerts building owners the moment a leak is detected, mitigating damage through automatic shut off, and diagnosing potential plumbing problems before they become an issue. The Uponor Pro Squad is a nationwide network of plumbing professionals whose mission is to promote, sell, and install and service Phyn Plus.
