    Anybody have a "Flo Control by Moen"?

    A friend recommended the above to help avoid a water leak disaster. It's installed in your water main and controlled by a smart phone. What it does is notify you if an unusual water flow is happening and, from what I understand, will shut off the water automatically. Sounds like a good idea to me.
    Does anyone have one, what do you think of it?

    My MIL has something like that (not sure of brand: Might be hard-wired rather than smart) on her house. It was mandated by the insurance company after she had a flood from a burst pipe a few years ago. I don't know that she hates it but does complain a little. For example, the lawn irrigation system sometimes triggers it or it also triggers if the tries to top off her swimming pool from the garden hose. So, I guess as long as you are OK with the fact that it might create issues like that, it could make sense if you are worried about flooding?

    We had that kind of device on the second floor laundry hookups at our old property. One caution...if the residence has a fire sprinkler system that's connected to the water supply from the street (doesn't apply to folks with wells that must have a closed, tank setup), then you would want the device past the tie-in to the sprinkler system for obvious reasons.

    The most expensive tool is the one you buy "cheaply" and often...
