Our Portfolio



Waterguru is the first appliance-enabled “chemicals-as-a-service” for residential pool owners. The company has developed a novel purpose-built, network-connected robot that continuously tests pool water chemistry, reports the test results to a cloud analytics platform, and adds the minimum amount of chemicals to the pool water to maintain the perfect chemical balance.
