Operational Technology for Moments When Seconds Matter®

Kairos Water is a purpose-driven company that manufactures cutting-edge operational risk management technologies for commercial and residential properties. 

Our mission is to create the most resilient operational risk management technologies with a patented core solution focused on mitigating water-related threats. Frozen pipe conditions, leaky irrigation, old water heaters, HVAC, laundry, or kitchen equipment; no matter the problem's source, the Kairos team is prepared to design a custom plan specifically to protect your building and your budget. 

Our patented core solution enables real estate owners to shift from a state of reactionary repair and maintenance to one that is proactive and preventative. In just under 18 months, we’ve helped protect over 7,000 apartment units from the recurring threat of water damage, detecting hundreds of potentially catastrophic leaks. Since the product launch, ZERO customers have needed to file an insurance claim, with little to no damage, as a result of installing Kairos technology in their communities. Join us in securing a more resilient and sustainable future for property owners everywhere.


Dean Fung-A-Wing

Chief Executive Officer & Founder

From a background in the residential real estate finance industry through the 08 market crash, Dean has built a luxury home services company with over 35k customers in metro Atlanta which led him to the challenge of solving a customer need that created what is now his latest venture, Kairos. It's a digital water technology company focused on asset protection and water conservation through a patented metering and leak detection system. Having personally witnessed the aftermath of over 3,000 water damage cases and working closely with insurance providers lends to a unique perspective on exactly why 14,000 water damage claims are filed every day.

Sensors Deployed


Units Protected


Damage Prevented


After having our Kairos equipment installed, we have seen the benefit far outweigh the upfront cost. We have seen it prevent numerous major HVAC leaks from an upstairs to a downstairs unit allowing us to get in and make the necessary repairs before flooding to the downstairs unit, which on average would cost us $3000, depending on the severity of the leak. The team has been highly professional and fun to work with. Not only are we getting a great product, but we are getting educated in the process of how it can save our bottom line in the long run.

Cassi Harbuck

Regional Director, Palomar Properties

We evaluated 3 top vendor solutions and tested the Kairos leak detection system for 12 months. We needed to ensure that Kairos’ capabilities could meet our expectations. Kairos exceeded them. Provided tremendous value, not to mention providing peace of mind for our onsite team. Kairos and Crescent Heights will have a bright future together based on their performance here.
