I'd rather get something detects water and shuts off. I got this: https://www.skillingsandsons.com/...ff-systems It actually shuts off your well pump (provided you have a well). There are other ones that shut off a valve, but I wanted something that even if my leak happened at a the pressure tank it would save me. Hope that helps somebody!

Having a water leak detector saves me $35 a year on my insurance. Check with your insurance company before you decide you don't need this. Plus if you live somewhere where it gets cold enough for pipes to freeze and burst it's a no brainer. Not to mention if you are a snow bird or have multiple homes and your house may be vacant for a short time.
Thanks for mentioning this.. If my insurance gives me a break so that it pays for the device over couple years, then I'll get it! Any problems with unit in your experience? Any false positive or false negative reading? Have you tried to purposefully have a very slow dripping faucet to see if the unit detected it?

One point I can add. My local water provider called us last week and told us that we have a leak. They were able to tell us exactly the numbers. 30 gal. per hour for the last 3 weeks.
We do have a digital (wifi) water usage counter that is provided by our local water agency.

After looking at the water usage and the damage ..... they were spot on. 30 gals per hour.
For some who have the digital water usage counter provided to them by their local water provider can request detail(s) water usage from the agency. I will add an analogue water counter to my house after the main water shutoff valve just to check their average numbers to ours. But "they" already do water leak analysis for us.

my 2 cents.

How would this handle an RO system that randomly uses a low flow of water for hours at a time multiple times day and night?
EXCELLENT QUESTION! That would be example of a positive warning of a "leak" that is not concerning. I suppose you could turn off water supply to the reverse osmosis (RO) unit for a period of time to allow the Flo Moen to assess for leaks anywhere else in the water supply line.

Could you then determine what degree of "leak" is the detected by the Flo Moen from the RO unit to serve as a baseline ? My own RO unit has a variable timeline of wasting a little water so now I'm not sure the Flo Moen would be helpful.

Hope others can share their experience about having a RO unit or similar issues.

I picked this up yesterday and had a regular plumber install. It was $120 labor $20 parts. Took about an hour.
Good to know about the labor cost to install. Thanks.

Cheaper maybe lesser known brand but no subscription required...I don't have experience myself but just appears the Moen is overpriced....

My Flo is mounted just after the house filter system, so after the pressure tank. Flo shut off the water when my house pump shut off and the pressure tank psi dropped while I was using water. This does not prevent leaks before the pressure tank, but it does detect upstream and will alert you that there is a pressure drop. I plan to place Flo just after the house pump but when I bought this and wanted it installed quickly, it was easier to install it in the 3/4" line going to the house. I want to mount it just after the house pump because I have hose bibs before the filter system. I need to determine what pieces I need to connect it to that 1 -1/4" line and then it should stop any leaks at the hose bibs or pressure tank.

Ps, I don't have the paid plan.

It should be able to determine that it is not a leak. When the RO system is running, and Flo in sleep mode, the system will be logging what kinds of water usage is acceptable. The only unlikely problem is if you have a leak with the exact same flow rate then it may not catch it.

Labor cost are very subjective based on where you live and the plumbers in those areas. E.g NYC $120 is just the charge for showing up. E.g. #2 you live in the best neighborhood, the plumbers have a difference price point for you.

He got a great deal at that price for a plumber to come by and install, but we don't know where he lives, who the plumber is (e.g. they works on all his commercial property's so for his house he did it at cost). And then there is what, what was the size of the line? 1" more, less? Easy access and just cutting a section out? Or total cut out and reconfiguration to get this to fit in-line?

It would be unfair to expect this pricing throughout the country.

I just wanted to say that I have owned one for a couple months and it is very impressive. It tests for leaks every night. The way it does it is by monitoring usage, determines when there is little usage in the middle of the night, shutting down the water for a couple minutes and monitors any drop in pressure. The $5 a month is for analysis, what fixture is being use at what time etc, interesting, but not critical for me. The reason I bought this over the competing devices is that none of the ones I found claim to be able to measure a drip. I can tell you, my opinion is this can measure a drip. I have a 3 unit building and an unnoticed toilet can easily cost me $400 is water bills, and has. I monitor water usage much more carefully now, and this is my main tool. High quality product, attentive and caring customer support. For me, this was a good buy at $430.
So how does this work for your 3 unit building. If unit #1 has a leaky toilet the other two unit #2 & #3 would have there water shut off until unit #1 renter came home to give access for someone to come in and fix? Or you have three of these flo's one for each unit? Trying to understand.

Anyone using this AND have a Rachio smart sprinkler controller where watering is based on random times and run times based on when it determines for your area and landscaping type (per zone) requires watering.

My entire extended family has never experienced a home with leaky pipes so I guess there are areas where new housing simply doesn't carry the same quality control and craftsmanship of the typical older houses we have in the northeast. Ours was built in 1940, still has original pipes in excellent shape, and never had a leak. The other benefit to living by a Great Lake and having municipal water is that it is cheap. We pay under $50 a quarter for water. So this device would be an extravagant toy for us, but if you face costly water and a less than reliable builder this might be worth it to you.

Completely different kind of device. The linked device simply mounts on the existing valve to create a remotely controlled motorized valve controller.
That's not necessarily a bad solution (as long as the valve turns easily) but it's nothing like the device in this thread.

There bugging, $300+ not happening.

"5X more likely than theft" ah that all depends where you live and if the theft is your copper lines im sure your FLO will go with the theft.

"DAILY LEAK TESTING: Micro Leak Technology proactively monitors the security of the home's entire water system (including behind walls and in foundations) to identify leaks as small as a drop per minute (e. g. pinhole leaks, etc. )." They are not monitoring shit behind any wall. Proof, when it shuts off ALL water to your home will it tell you which pipe behind what wall has the drop per minute leak, NO it can't. B.S. i seeing nothing about bypass, because if you can't bypass the only thing you will be doing is calling a plumber to remove it in order to get water. ANother $300 bill

"FLOSENSE TECHNOLOGY: The device's security parameters optimizes water savings by understanding the homes water use and tailoring protection to each home" and what make me shit less?

Are they provided any water damage protection policy like they do with battery UPS systems for example? What NO they are not, so they are selling you just a bunch of fancy words with a $25 device.

Need to know how much water your using, here's a crazy idea, look at your bill. If you want to see your phone move an arrow while you flush your toilet give them $349.

I'll Pass.
Do you have other suggestions to automatically, and/or shut off your main water should a pipe burst or leak when you're sleeping or away from home?

Looks like you need water leak sensors everywhere for that to work
