Water Shield by FPL Home

A drippy faucet or a leaky toilet is a problem, but an unseen leak is even more problematic and could cause extensive damage before it’s discovered.

Perhaps this is why the severity of individual insurance claims attributed to water damage, reached more than $11,000 between 2015-2019.

The impact could be far-reaching since insurance premiums sometimes rise following such claims, and it’s incredibly inconvenient to live with water damage results.

What if, like magic, a leak was stopped before you knew it was there, preventing damage to your home and pocketbook? It’s possible and not by prestidigitation, but with the WaterShieldSM by FPL Home program. The WaterShieldSM by FPL Home program uses the Flo by Moen water shutoff device and the Flo by Moen smartphone application (App) to help protect your home from water damage. The system detects leaks before they’re noticeable, sensing even the most minor and unseen leaks that drip from pipes behind walls and under cabinets. The system learns your water use habits and keeps track of water pressure. Customers receive an alert when there’s a plumbing issue.

The Flo by Moen water shutoff device updates homeowners in real-time via an App notification, and if a significant leak is detected, the Flo by Moen device automatically shuts off the water supply, potentially saving thousands of dollars in damages and on your water bill. If a faucet was left running, you could use a smartphone via the App to turn off the water at that specific faucet. Snowbirds who leave the Sunshine State for points north each summer can have peace of mind when enrolling in the WaterShieldSM by FPL Home program.

Enrollment includes installation of the Flo by Moen water shutoff device (a $600 value) and access to the mobile App to control water when you’re away from home. Enrolling in the WaterShieldSM by FPL Home program could mean a discount on your homeowner’s insurance (check with your provider). Enrollment also provides $1,000 in annual coverage for interior plumbing if it fails due to normal wear and tear.

The cost to enroll in the WaterShieldSM by FPL Home program is only $19.99 per month, plus tax, and could pay for itself if your homeowner’s insurance provides a discount.
