Flo Smart Water Monitor and Shutoff Installation Tips
This article includes detailed information on the Flo Smart Water Monitor and Shutoff, also known as the Flo by Moen Water Shutoff.
Here are a couple tips and recommendations when installing the Flo Smart Water Monitor and Shutoff:
- O-Rings - The Flo Smart Water Monitor and Shutoff includes 2 additional O-Rings along with the 2 that are pre-installed on the device. If it is necessary to replace the O-Rings on the Flo Smart Water Monitor and Shutoff, please make sure to add a liberal amount of Silicone Grease prior to installation. Make sure that the O-Rings are properly seated to ensure the proper fit and installation.
- Silicone Grease - Moen recommends using high quality silicone grease. The pre-installed O-rings are lubricated with Dow Corning's Molkcote 111.
- Teflon Tape - Moen recommends using high quality PTFE teflon tape when wrapping the threaded ends of the homes piping to ensure a proper seal. Always inspect connections, with water pressure, for leaks before sealing them from access.
- Securing the Flo Smart Water Monitor and Shutoff- When securing the polymer union nuts on the Flo Smart Water Monitor and Shutoff to the homes piping, Moen recommends that the installer "Hand Tightens" the union nuts and applies a 1/4 of an inch turn with the proper hand tool. Please take the necessary precautions to avoid over tightening the union nuts which may cause damage to the hardware.
