Many years ago our home flooded due to a water pipe break causing thousands of dollars worth of damage. I decided to install Flo and have been extremely pleased with the results. My wife and i travel every week and we are no longer concerned about coming home to a flooded house. Although I have the option of placing Flo in "away" mode, I have elected to cut off the water when out of town just to be extra safe. The Flo app makes this choice extremely easy to implement. I have also learned our water habits along with water usage from different appliances, which has been an eye opener. I would highly recommend the Flo device for both prevention of water damage and awareness of water usage.
