Headed out for vacation, the weekend, or maybe just for the night? Consider this, a 3/4" pipe with average water pressure in the home at 60-80 psi will disperse approximately 23 gals per minute. There are a number of variables (ie: toilet supply line, water heater, sink supply line, main supply line, etc...). Regardless, if you are out of the house for an extended period of time and experience a pipe burst, you will have some clean up to do when you get home.
One way to help stop the flow of water is by installing a smart water shut-off system. There are several on the market, one of them being the Flo by Moen.
The smart water shut-off's monitor the flow and pressure of the water in your home, detecting irregularities, and if configured, can perform an automatic shut-off of your system.
If you have ever experienced a water loss, then you can definitely see the advantages to a smart water shut-off system. If you haven't, contact me for more details. The costs are surprisingly modest, especially compared to the cost of water mitigation, clean-up and drying when a water loss event occurs.
