AquaOne Device Stops Toilet Leaks

TI’s MSP430 microprocessor has found its way into a novel and practical application: a leak detector for toilets. The device, by AquaOne, consists of a shut-off valve and two water level sensors, one for the tank, to detect slow leaks, and one for the bowl that detects overflows. Both sensors report back to the shut-off valve, which houses the controller, which can cut off the water supply if there is a problem.
