Flush with Success

Sensor Industries is another local startup aimed at improving the environment. Based in Camarillo, it makes sensors capable of detecting toilet leaks or indoor water floods.
According to David Duckwitz, the company’s new chief executive officer, approximately 20% of indoor water usage is from toilets leaking from the tank into the bowl, resulting in occasional “phantom flushes.” The company’s toilet leak and flood sensors send text message and email alerts to monitors who then take actions to prevent ongoing water waste or indoor water damage.
Leaky toilets with old flappers can also be detected if residents place dye in the tank and wait to see if it ends up in the bowl without flushing. However, Sensor Industries’ devices are more commonly used in commercial toilets without accessible tanks, apartments, schools and other locations where people using restrooms are not motivated to closely monitor leaks, such as where water is not billed directly to restroom users.
Duckwitz says Sensor Industries is “a purpose-driven company with very passionate employees who want to make a difference in water conservation.”
The company so far has installed more than 5,000 sensors and recently signed a contract with the Oxnard Housing Authority for installation of sensors in homes through a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development program, reimbursed by the Metropolitan Water District.
