About Hydrelis
Hydrelis, a French corporation based in the northern coastal town of Boulogne-sur-Mer, manufactures the award winning Switch Flow line of water circuit breakers. The technology offers single site and multi-complex building operators complete control of water management from a centralized location.

This unique solution was initially developed in 2004 by transposing the idea of the electric circuit breaker onto building water mains. This offered a level of safety in the event of water leaks or pipes bursting and has since evolved to offer complete management of water operations. Switch Flow offers basic commands such as regularly scheduled on/off commands, while accessories allow the devices to remotely open/close valves, restrict consumption, meter consumption as well as shut-off water and sound an alarm in the event of an anomaly.
