The error message FLO has a FLO 1 and a FLO 2 with FLO 1 it usually means just a dirty filter, you would need to turn off breaker remove the filter and turn on breaker again if FLO goes away u need to be cleaned or replaced. With the FLO 2 error that usually means a mechanical error, usually the Flow Switch/Pressure switch has failed to close and shut down power to heater. Locate the switch on or near the heater and replace the Flow Switch and then you should be fine as long as the pumps are working properly and you have good water pressure from all pumps when running.
