Water damage is the most common cause of insurance claim in North America, and can often cost tens of thousands of dollars to repair. This easy-to-use water detector can give you peace of mind by alerting you to leaks before damage is caused! Avoid or minimize damage from faulty appliances, burst pipes, sewer backups, leaky roofs, heavy rainfall, overland flooding, and more.
When the sensor makes contact with water, a loud 105dB alarm or musical chime is triggered, and will continue to sound until the sensor is dried or the battery discharges.
Installation is easy: Simply install a 9-volt battery (not included), place the sensor on the floor, and choose between musical chime and alarm. With the long 6-foot sensor wire, you can keep the alarm unit easily accessible while placing the sensor in hard-to-reach but vulnerable locations such as a sump pump pit. The built-in suction cup on the sensor lets you stick it to the inside lip of a bathtub or sink, for warning alerts before an overflow. Use it wherever leaks might occur: Near hot water tanks, dishwashers, washing machines, sinks and drains. It’s especially useful where they are hard to detect, like slow drips behind appliances or under a hidden drain pipe.
For remote notifications by telephone check out Ideal’s SK642 or SK662.
We recommend that you test the battery monthly and change it twice a year, as you would in a smoke detector. IDEAL Security has been supplying quality products since 1956. Please contact us for any installation problems at .
