Moen Enters into Strategic Arrangement with Homeowners Insurance Provider to Help Control Rising Costs

Smart Leak Detection from Moen can Help the Insurance Industry and its Customers to Minimize the Impact of Water Leaks

North Olmsted, Ohio… Moen, the leader in water experiences in the home, today announced an initiative with a major insurance provider designed to drive adoption of the Moen® Flo Smart Water Monitor and Shutoff devices through special savings and installation programs for its customers. This program can significantly reduce the number of insurance claims customers file related to catastrophic water damage because of residential leaks. Flo Smart Water Monitor and Shutoff devices offer a digitally driven and proactive approach to leak detection, with the ability to help reduce water damage claim frequency events by as much as 96%,1 as well as household water wasted through preventable leaks by up to 90 percent.2 Increasing the number of homes utilizing smart leak detection can help home insurance providers to reduce their risk of water damage claims and control costs, and helps homeowners avoid the expense and disruption caused by preventable water damage.

“Not only does water damage create financial and emotional hardship for homeowners, it strains the home insurance industry. Nationally, we estimate that insurers pay out over $15 billion in water claim damages annually3 of which a significant amount are tied to leaks. 4 By encouraging the use of Flo smart leak detection, Moen can help insurance companies reduce water damage claims caused by water leaks and alleviate costs associated with those claims,” said Jeff Barnes, vice president, business development, Moen. “Additionally, together with the insurance industry, we can help to reduce wasted water, which is especially important in areas where water is scarce. Across the country, an estimated one trillion gallons of water are wasted due to leaks each year.5

Moen will be working with Farmers Insurance® to help provide Smart Water Monitor and Shutoff devices to policyholders.

The Moen® Flo Smart Water Monitor and Shutoff continuously monitors the pressure and flow rate of the water moving through a home's pipes, detecting leaks as small as a drop per minute with Microleak™ Technology – anywhere in the home. If the device identifies an issue, it will promptly send an alert through the Moen Smart Water App, enabling users to turn off the water, or in the event of a catastrophic leak, it will automatically shut off the water to prevent major damage. Homeowners also can track water usage by fixture and set conservation goals within the app to further support water-saving efforts.
