Sierra Club Canada Foundation and Alert Labs are partnering to help members conserve water and protect their homes from water damage.
As a start up founded in Kitchener, Ontario, Alert Labs cares about technology that empowers Canadians to protect our homes and our water resources.
In 2016, Southern Ontario saw levels of water stress that triggered municipalities to issue drought warnings and encourage residents to use less water (Environmental Commissioner of Ontario Annual Energy Conservation Progress Report - 2016/2017 - Volume One).
Alert Labs is working with cities such as Guelph, the Region of Waterloo, and Welland to help residents use less water.
Our customers have reported reducing water use by 18% after installing the Alert Labs’ Flowie water sensor and Floodie companion sensor. That is similar to saving 2 months’ worth of water consumption.
When you know exactly how much water you’re using, you know how much you’re wasting.
Sierra Club Canada Foundation Members can visit alertlabs.com/sierraclub to receive 1 year of FREE water usage analytics and leak and flood monitoring ($59 value) when you purchase a Flowie water sensor or water sensor kit. Use promo code SIERRA1YR at checkout.
As an additional benefit, with each purchase Alert Labs will make a charitable donation of $25 to Sierra Club Canada Foundation in support of their work to protect our precious water sources.

Amid a wave of sump pumps, backwater valves and other methods designed to keep home basements dry comes a new, simple way to mitigate flood risk – an e-sensor.
George Tsintzouras, CEO and co-founder of Canadian water tech company Alert Labs, became interested in creating such devices based on a bad experience he remembers as a property owner.
