Bend, OR  is a beautiful place to live and to visit. Residents of Bend can testify! It’s also a prime place to own a vacation rental property as there are many people that come to experience the town during the summer and winter. As with any property, there are maintenance needs. It’s no surprise that it is more challenging to maintain a home if you don’t live there yourself or have someone that checks up on the property often. So, it’s not uncommon for homeowners to visit their beautiful home, only to find property damage caused by a leak, busted pipe, or something else. Water damage is one of the most common causes of property damage. According to Water Damage Advisor, “Water damage is typically caused by failing plumbing or pipes, but many Americans ignore water infrastructure maintenance.” The EPA statistics show that “ten percent of homes have leaks that waste 90 gallons or more per day”. These can be leaky toilets, faucets, etc. Fortunately, there is a solution.

Protect Your Home with Flo by Moen

We are here to help you take care of your home and prevent plumbing disasters. With that, we introduce Flo by Moen. Flo is Moen’s smart water shut off that monitors all of your home’s water activity including water pressure, temperature, and flow which you can track on the Flo app. Should it sense abnormalities, or identify a leak, it will notify you directly and turn off the water in case of an emergency. Flo runs daily health tests and displays all the data within the app, where you can view it at your leisure and take action yourself. This device is the perfect option for vacation rentals as you’re away often and don’t want to come back to an unexpected surprise. 

Flo is one of the most effective ways to protect your property from sustaining water damage, year long. In the winter, pipes freeze, often causing bursts that wreak havoc on homes. Throughout the year, water heaters, faucets, toilets can all leak wasting water and giving you a headache. It’s a great device for all, and especially for those that don’t live on their property.
