Life is full of surprises. Unfortunately, not all surprises are good, like a water leak, for instance. Wading through water in your living room or swabbing the kitchen floor like a ship deck isn’t anyone’s idea of fun. Sadly, it happens. In the United States, water damage accounts for almost 24% of insurance claims1, but what’s sadder still? Homeowner’s insurance doesn’t always cover claims for water damage, which are average $10,900 per claim, and gradual damage incurred over time is often not covered2. A leaky joint can cause destruction to your home but could also destroy your finances and credit. Even if homeowners are guaranteed coverage for water damage, who needs the inconvenience? Altogether avoiding the scenario is preferred.

Now, homeowners can help skip the inconvenience and damages that accompany water leaks at home when they enroll in the WaterShieldSM by FPL Home program. The Flo by Moen smart water shut-off device and the Flo by Moen smart phone application (App) help to protect your home from damages that occur because of leaks and includes professional installation of the device by a licensed, certified technician. The device works with the App to monitor the plumbing system, keeps track of water consumption, and has innovative technology powered by the home’s WiFi to alert homeowners via an App notification when there’s a problem. It detects even tiny leaks that are hidden and could go undetected until it’s too late.

The cost of the product is a small price to pay for peace of mind it can provide. You can leave for an extended family vacation knowing that your home has leak protection. If a major leak is detected, the Flo by Moen water shut-off device will automatically turn off the water supply to prevent damage. If your family hurriedly leaves the house and a faucet is left running, you can turn it off remotely with the mobile App. The Flo by Moen water shut-off device can be installed on all water systems, including wells, and helps account for human error and mishaps, updating homeowners in real-time via App notifications.

Enroll in the WaterShieldSM by FPL Home program to get the Flo by Moen water shut-off device installed at no additional cost to you beyond the low monthly payment, which is a $600 value. The program also includes access to the mobile App that controls the water system from anywhere in the world. WaterShieldSM by FPL Home program customers also receive annual coverage of $1,000 for interior plumbing that needs repair due to normal wear and tear. Some customers may also receive discounts on their homeowner’s insurance because they are enrolled in the WaterShieldSM by FPL Home program. A homeowners insurance discount could be equal to or greater than the WaterShield enrollment cost, $19.99 per month, plus tax.

Even without a discount, WaterShieldSM by FPL Home is worth the peace of mind it affords homeowners. It can save thousands of dollars, especially if insurance doesn’t cover the type of water damage incurred.
