3 Plumbing Innovations to Be Thankful For

Thanksgiving is fast approaching—what are you thankful for this year? The plumbers at EJ Plumbing sat down and discussed the top plumbing innovations that have made life easier. Did your favorite innovation make the list?

Smart Water Detectors

Did you know water damage ranks as the second most common home insurance claim? According to Plumber Magazine, “Of homeowners who have experienced a water leak claim in the past two years, 57% spent more than $5,000 on cleanup costs and 15% spent $20,000 or more.”

You can now say goodbye to costly water damage thanks to Moen’s latest smart water detector, Flo. Flo is a small puck-like object that you place under a sink, near your water heater, in the basement, or anywhere you think you may have a leak. Flo is designed to send a notification to your phone if it senses freezing temperatures or a leak. If you also have Moen’s water monitoring and shutoff system installed, Flo will also automatically send a command to shut off your water before the leak causes major damage.

Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless water heaters are more efficient and last longer than traditional tank water heaters. Because they heat the water as you need it, you don’t have to worry about running out of hot water. Tankless water heaters also use up less energy to operate and have fewer maintenance requirements, which can save you time and money!

WaterSense Products

The WaterSense line of plumbing fixtures can save you major money and water. The average American family of four who installed new WaterSense products throughout their home can save up to 6,700 gallons of water and 580 kilowatts of electricity each year! Low-flow toilets and water-saving showerheads and faucet products make it easy to become more water and energy-efficient.

Saving energy, water, and money has never been more streamlined than these innovations make it. Contact our team at to learn how a tankless water heater or new fixtures can help you save money.
