Did you know water damage is the second most frequently filed homeowners claim? Many times, the damage left behind by water can be to sheet rock, cabinetry, flooring, personal property, appliances, and even more. So, you can imagine how quickly the cost of said claim can add up. Wouldn’t it be amazing if you had a way to detect leaks and shut off your water as soon as a leak is detected? Think about how much money that would save you and your insurance company, not to mention the time and hassle of going through a renovation due to water damage.
Safeco, one of our trusted companies, has recently informed their agents of a product that is on the market now that can do just that. The product is called Flo and is made by Moen. Flo is a device that is installed on the main water line to the home. It detects, water flow, pressure, and temperature. It syncs to your smartphone and alerts you of any leaks that may be going on anywhere in your home. Once you’re alerted, you can shut the water to your home off immediately, minimizing catastrophic damage. Many water leaks are behind a wall and can’t be seen until it’s too late. With Flo, these leaks are detected before causing a great deal of damage.
Another thing Flo will do? If you don’t have your phone with you and a leak is detected, Flo will automatically shut your water off. Flo will also work with your Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. Not only could this device save you time and money from the hassle of a claim, it may even offer a discount on your homeowners’ insurance.
Flo is currently offering a discount to all consumers who are insured with Safeco for professional installment of the device. A special code is required for the discount and can be obtained by your trusted Safeco agent. Other carriers also offer discounts for water leak protection.
