one of the beta testers had some problems with the lack of direct control through the app, he could not open/close the valve remotely. And he wanted more direct control over some of the settings eg. 30 minute shower. Have these problems been solved with the latest version of unit and app?
Asked by: georges
I've been Beta tester, I don't ever have that problem. Android or IOS. I been using IOS and no problem so far.

Are the fittings on this device brass ? Woudl ahve to tie it into my main hosue line with l;ast I fittings . Also assume this is tied into line AFTER pressure relief valve ?
Asked by: Deuce
Yes. Install it right after the water meter for maximum protection. The device senses water pressure, water temperature and water flow rate 24/7.

It doesn't matter whether you have PEX or copper. You can install in PEX with right fittings for the PEX line.

The app and access over the internet are fine however after the first week you stop spending so much time looking at the limited data available. I think I'd have been better off with one of the devices that goes around the pipe instead of being in line with the water.

I love getting data about all aspects of my house. I recently purchased an energy monitor, use automated door locks etc. I was super excited just over a year ago when I was able to finally purchase one of these devices, and made it in on the beta program, my unit is actually marked as "engineering sample". The production version, which I thought I was supposed to be provided having been on the beta program, was never provided to me and may solve some of the issues below, however only the ones related to the hardware. Overall: Sadly I've not been very happy with the device. Even after the cost of the device the installation in the greater Washington, DC area was over $300 and that was from the installer that FLO recommended I use. Very expensive. I would have hoped that for the extra expense and effort required of the in-line installation the features and support would be better. I am able to turn water on and off via the application however can't access data in a very granular way. Also leak detection does not seem to work very well when water pressure is on the lower side of recommendations for a single family house. If they address the issues and I've provided more detail if you care to read, I'd definitely recommend this product however at this time I can't recommend the investment. You will likely be underwhelmed and disappointed. Additional detail: Installation: If the pipe you intend to install this on is running against a wall you will have issues with the installation and even getting the weird cover back onto the device once installation is complete. In the end my installer wasn't able to get the piece on. I'm not sure what the purpose of that cover even is. Rotating the plastic nut that creates the seal is also extremely difficult when the pipe is close to the wall. This affected me because after the installer left, after waiting over a week, I was still not seeing any flow or data from the device although it was online. Turns out I needed to turn off the water in the house, take the device off and clean out the impeller so that it would move freely. There were no alerts notifying me that there was a problem just that is was doing a calibration. I had to call support and have them send me a supplemental instruction on how to clean. I did all that work by myself as I didn't want another high cost plummer visit. Operation: Operating the device once I finally got it online and cleaned out is fairly straightforward. It seems to provide reasonable accurate information with regard to flow, pressure and temperature, and I immediately realized I needed to reduce the pressure I am getting from the city (90 psi), more about that later. If you want anything more granular though you will be grealy disappointed. I am currently paying the additional $5/month for their total protection which increases the amount of insurance but is also supposed to provide me with more data. What fixtures am I using, how often, how much is for showers vs washing dishes. This is data that FLO is capturing and recording for everyone however only showing it to the individuals that pay extra on a monthly basis. The data from the fixtures is lackluster at best. It often captures washing hands as a use of the toilet... As mentioned, accessing the core data through the website or the application is fairly straightforward however if you want do download that data in more than and excel export the FLO team will not provide you with access to do that. In fact if you try any sort of automated query for the data you will get a call from the FLO team asking you to stop. In my case that call came a few weeks after I'd attempted something and I'd totally forgotten about it. Even though I called them back the same day they were less than helpful in helping me identify what I'd done previously that was making requests. When advised my account would be suspended and deleted I again asked for some help and received no response for 45 days. After receiving that additional information it took only 30 minutes to resolve the problem. I'd imagine this post on a vendors site will result in a quicker response than my support ticket. The unit did immediately identify I had an issue with high water pressure from the city, which was great. It did result in needing to install a pressure reducing valve in front of the FLO which meant dealing with those nuts again up against the wall but again I was able to do this without the need of the plumber. After the successful installation of the reducing valve and setting the pressure down to 45 psi I was alerted daily that there was a small leak detected during the daily test. I had to increase the pressure back up above 55 before those daily failures went away. This leads me to wonder how well it is going to detect an actual leak.

I was not even home (Nice) Came back on the same afternoon and found Flo unit installed. Since then I get alerts about small water leaks came from irrigation system in the backyard. Starting saving money on the first day. Few month later Flo alert me regarding water pressure too high. PCV/pressure regulator valve went bad, without Flo unit this could be time bomb waiting to happen. that alone paid for itself. DON'T WAIT GET IT NOW.

It will detect the smallest leaks that if go undetected, will lead to some other major problem. We had a leak inside the wall in our shower. Flo was quite persistent in telling us that a leak exists and would measure how much water was being wasted. I was able to pinpoint the problem and fix it. In addition to it's important job of saving your home, Flo gives you the satisfaction of monitoring your water usage and for those who care about the environment is a great tool. It will give you the satisfaction of monitoring your water usage :) Nothing like real statistics to make you replace your front lawn with dessert succulents!!

Wish it were a little less expensive, but worth it in the long run. I purchased this valve as I was concerned about a possible freeze up of the domestic water lines during the winter months in my home. We moved into a condo in Connecticut in 2016, and the winter weather can be pretty severe. We've had a few issues where the tub drain line has frozen, but thankfully, no freeze-ups of any water lines. When I did some research, the Flo valve is the one that appealed to me the most. Despite it's cost, I really liked the fact that it is a whole house solution as opposed to the spot leak detectors that are on the market. Yes they are cheaper but if the water rolls the wrong way you'll get no push notification of a leak, and how many of these type leak detectors would you need to secure the whole house,. The Flo uses temperature, flow, & pressure to troubleshoot any problem situation and acts accordingly by closing the main water supply valve to the house. In my opinion, this could prevent a catastrophic event from happening by mitigating the water damage due to a leak or freeze-up. The Flo app is very well organized, and easy to use & and well laid out. If there is an issue, you'll receive push notifications, and depending upon the severity of what it detects, the main water valve to the house will be shut until such time that you deem it safe to reopen. In addition, if you should decide that the valve needs to be closed, you have the ability to do that as well, as this valve can also be controlled using wifi.

I am rainwater dependent and twice suffered a leak that emptied my tank. FLO prevents this from reoccurring. FLO is extremely sensitive and detects levels of water usage from small to large. The one complaint I have is lack of direct control over device settings. I have frequently gotten usage warnings when usage was proper and more than once had water turned off when I did not want it turned off. Putting FLO into the SLEEP mode does not correct this issue. In one case I had house sitters in the house and disconnected power to FLO so that the house sitters would not have to deal with water outages. FLO should be changed to allow more consumer control of settings. If I want to take a 30 minute shower I should be able to change settings to allow this.
