Uponor has announced the formation of Uponor Pro Squad, an exclusive nationwide network of expertly trained plumbers and water specialists interested in leveraging the intelligent water technology of Phyn Plus — smart water assistant + shutoff — to grow their businesses.
The Uponor Pro Squad was developed to proactively promote, effectively sell and expertly install and service Phyn Plus. This new smart water monitoring system for homes automatically measures tiny changes in water pressure, 240 times per second, to identify and alert homeowners the moment a leak is detected, mitigate costly damage through automatic shut off, and diagnose potential problems in plumbing systems before they become an issue.
Licensed plumbing professionals interested in joining the Uponor Pro Squad can apply for consideration via uponorprosquad.com. Once accepted into the program, authorized installers will receive comprehensive training. Experts at Uponor and Phyn will provide ongoing plumbing and technical support to help members leverage the device’s features and benefits to grow their businesses.
“Uponor has always been a strong supporter of the trades,” says Bill Gray, president, Uponor North America. “Now, with the help of this new venture into smart home technology, plumbers can position themselves as market leaders and build their businesses, while helping to advance the plumbing industry into the digital age.”
“Water is one of the most essential and often overlooked components of a home,” said Ryan Kim, CEO of Phyn. “We spent a decade of R&D learning water's digital fingerprint and solving the complexities of water systems. Backing from global leaders Belkin and Uponor has empowered us to bring the most accurate leak detection solution to the market, while allowing us to easily scale and bring new features to market that add value and enhance the consumer experience.”
To remain an Uponor Pro Squad member in good standing, contractors must meet program requirements tied to sales, customer satisfaction, and service delivery. In return, as industry innovators, they will help shape future intelligent water innovations by Uponor and Phyn, influencing what sources say is the next generation of smart home technology.
