Our discovery of the Flo by Moen came too late to save my house from a very large and expensive flood in 2020.
A tiny leak, from a rarely used toilet, put out enough water to soak the carpet in the two adjoining rooms, as well as causing damage to drywall and a door frame. It's a mess!
If I'd had a Flo by Moen installed, the leak would have been a tiny bit of cleanup instead of the major renovation that we are now facing!

Although there wasn't a leak under here, the app did indicate there was a moisture problem. What we discovered was a build up of moisture on the underside of the sink due to a bunch of ice packs (from food delivery) melting. The cold on the underside of the sink met the warm air inside the cabinet creating potentially damaging moisture. By removing the ice packs and opening the cabinet the situation was fixed. But we would have never know this to be an issue, if it was not for the Flo smart water detector!
I would guess that most all homeowners have experienced some kind of water issue at one time or another. I've actually had quite a few and all of those would have benefited from early detection with the Flo.
Let's see, how many of these have you experienced like me:
Oh, and I forgot the month long leak out in the yard! That required replacing our main line to the house.
Yes, I just remembered one more--as young homeowners in our first house, the sewer line from house to street collapsed! Some kind of weird pipe was just back then. I wish I could remember how we discovered that one or maybe I don't!
Come on, share your own water/plumbing nightmares!
