Plumbing leaks are a scary thing for homeowners to think about, however one of the most frightening things about them is the fact that they aren’t always easy to spot right away. In fact, the average home likely has at least one plumbing leak right this very second, causing them to waste water at a slow but steady pace to the tune of possibly hundreds of gallons per year. That adds up to a considerable amount of lost water as well as potential damage to your home, and you may not even be aware of it. Microscopic cracks, slow drips, or even leaks through your plumbing fixtures could all be wasting water, and you may never know until the problem has gotten completely out of control.
However, today there’s a better solution. The Flo by Moen is a high-sensitivity smart leak detection system that uses sophisticated sensors, cutting-edge technology, and the power of internet connectivity to constantly monitor your entire home’s plumbing system. When the system detects a leak located somewhere in your home, it alerts you by using its Wi-Fi connectivity to send a notification straight to your smartphone. The Flo also features a water shutoff valve, allowing you to shut off the water in your home with the touch of a button, stopping leaks in their tracks until you can have a professional come to your home, find the leak, and fix it properly.

HOW IT WORKS
The Flo by Moen is a unique and ingenious system that uses extremely sensitive water flow sensors to detect leaks in your plumbing system. How does it do this? Through three water vitals: pressure, temperature, and flow). Pressure is a strong indicator of leaks, and any changes in pressure usually indicate that a leak has emerged somewhere. Likewise, as water flows through your plumbing, it has to pass through the Flo’s sensor. When the Flo detects an abnormal water flow, such as an extremely slow or soft trickle usually associated with leaks, it then alerts you by sending you a notification to your phone. This system is so sensitive and so accurate it can detect water leaks as small as one drop per minute, making it the ultimate leak detector and protection device.
