This week, Moen’s Mason Hall explains how the company’s Smart Water Network conserves water while optimizing convenience via products that have both brains and beauty.

Water scarcity is looming, not just in the U.S. but in many regions across our planet. Moen is aggressively addressing water waste, and is doing so with products and systems that consumers love. Through Moen’s Smart Water Network and components that include the Flow Smart Water Monitor, consumers can have their water virtually any way they want without wasting a drop. Explaining how Moen helps customers set it and forget it while minimizing waste is Moen Head of Connected Products Mason Hall. He describes how consumers can have water their way in CES Tech Talk episode 9, Moen Smart Water Network is Genius on Tap, of the CES Tech Talk series.


  • Through Moen’s Smart Water Network, the company is tackling this statistic: In the U.S., alone, the average household uses 300 gallons of water a day – if every household used just 5% less water on a daily basis, 600 billion gallons of water would be conserved
  • Too much water is wasted carelessly – leaking faucets, water left running to warm up – Moen fixes this painlessly through solutions like the Flo Smart Water Monitor and Shut Off Valve, the brains of the Smart Water Network
  • The first offering of its kind, the Smart Water Network is a whole-home water ecosystem through which consumers enjoy total control of water in and around the home: Water in the pipes, exiting the faucet and shower head, even to some extent groundwater that can damage a home’s foundation
  • Moen allows consumers to manage their water’s behavior from near or far via an app that integrates with Google, Alexa, even Ring

They Said It

At the end of the day, water touches everyone's lives in some form or another. But most of the time, it's actually invisible. You don't see it. It lives behind the walls of your house, right? So, you're experiencing it at those moments of the day that you need water. Our goal at Moen is making sure that those experiences are meaningful. They're elevated. They're delightful. So, when we think of innovation around water, we're thinking of it in terms of how we're upgrading and bringing innovations with purpose to our users.

Even down to the fixture itself, we have intelligence in our Flo Smart Water Monitor and Shutoff that over time will actually inform the consumer where certain faucets and fixture types are consuming more water or less than others. So, it gives you a even more intricate power than just the total consumption of your home.
