Did you know that your home is twice as likely to suffer water damage than fire or theft combined? Gabe Halimi (@gabehalimi, TW) is well aware of this and learned the hard way. After suffering catastrophic water damage, Gabe’s Dad felt he could devise a solution to stop home water damage before it started. Thus Flo was created.
Halimi is the CEO and Co-Founder of Flo Technologies, the creators of a breakthrough plumbing technology that detects and stops leaks before they turn into much bigger problems. Prior to his own experience, Gabe Halimi was very familiar with plumbing failures. As a claims manager, he touched millions of dollars in product liability claims for allegedly failed plumbing products. This was a crucial career step that helped give way to Flo.
In this conversation, Blake and Gabe discuss:
- How technology like Flo is affecting water conservation at a municipal level.
- Ways for Multifamily and Multi-purpose real estate to leverage preventative technology like Flo.
- Why the Internet of Things might resurrect skilled labor trades.
