Forty percent of all homeowners will suffer through water damage in their home sometime in their lifetime, and it all can be prevented. Whether it’s a burst pipe, an overflowing toilet or a broken appliance, nothing is worse than discovering excess water has been flowing in your home for hours, days or weeks. New devices in the marketplace now attach to your main water line and can do all the monitoring for you. One brand -- Flo by Moen -- syncs to your phone, and not only can it shut off the water if a leak is detected, it can also help you manage your overall water consumption. Knowledge is power and prevention is key, so consider a smart water device to help you save money and protect your home.
