How It Works
Frequently Asked Questions
Consider it your new water assistant.
The bluebot is a clamp-on ultrasonic flow meter designed to monitor and track your water consumption and detect water leaks in real time from our iOS application.
One of the most unique features of bluebot is that it’s patented sensor design allows it to accurately and repeatably measure any Copper (Type M and L), PVC, Galvanized and PEX pipe size: 0.75”, 1.0, 1.25”, 1.75”, 2.0”.
Since bluebot is compatible with all residential pipe types and sizes, you simply need to make sure you have access to your main water line to confirm compatibility in your property. This is more relevant to multi-family properties such as apartments, condos, etc.
To successfully install bluebot, you will want to locate a section of pipe with at least 4.5” of accessible straight pipe, longer is better.
The pipe must not have any obstructions like fittings or dirt. To learn more about picking good pipe for bluebot, we recommend this article.

Simply clamp bluebot to the outside of your main water line.
There are none!
Unlike the competitors, we don't require any plumbers, electricians, water shutoffs, or surprise subscription fees.
At some point in the future, bluebot will introduce additional, optional features with a small additional cost. We will never limit core functionality behind a paywall.
As a thank you to our early adopters, everyone who purchases their blubot before 1/30/21 will be grandfathered in to an exclusive Pro Lifetime Account which will get full access to all features (for life) with no additional fees. Ever.
We are currently working on the Android and web versions of the bluebot water app. Our estimated launch date is early 2021.
We deliberately focused on refining the iOS app to a level we confidently considered to be feature complete so we could then more efficiently deliver the same richness in data across every platform. Read more about our mission here.
Easy To Use
Through the bluebot water app, bluebot connects seamlessly to your home's Wi-Fi network. No hub or bridge configuration required. The app offers two connection options for your convenience, from the comfort of your home, or directly at the installation location near your water line.
The bluebot device can be placed on main line or irrigation, pool house, guest house, individual property units, and more. We recommend using bluebot on single family homes, townhouses, condos and apartments, small businesses, second homes – really, any property you can think of up to a 2” water line.
Take total control with the robust alerting and notification options within the bluebot app. Unlike other water meters that only notify you when they see fit, bluebot puts you in total control. Set alerts based on your monitoring preferences and leak detection. Add your water bill to get real-time usage cost estimates allowing you to stay on budget and reduce your water bill each month. Don't forget to share your device with other family members in your home so everyone can help save!
