Atlanta Dynamics has been working with Rheem to develop a low-cost, powerless leak detection and inlet valve shut-off system for residential water heaters. The proposed device harnesses the absorption & expansion properties of Super-Absorbent Polymers to detect leaks and trigger inlet valve shut-off.
