Made in China for household sensors and alarms

I bought this item in part over cheaper because it was sold as "Mfd. by Glentronics, Inc., Lincolnshire, Il 60069. What was my surprise when the packaging said 'Made in China'. I Pretty sure Illinois hasn't moved to China, although their manufacturing jobs have moved.

Add paper for better detection

Good detectors available. I like the long sensor cable. I improved his recognition ability by sticking a piece of paper on the floor. It lays down on paper and sucks up water, turning off the sensors after a few seconds. Without them, he would not have been able to see water running down the sloping concrete. The water level had to rise slightly for the sensors to work.

  • Ideal for a small house
  • Not as thick as other picks

Bought 2 of these. They were tested before being placed next to my drain pump. Well guess what, none of them worked and I ended up with 3 inches of standing water in my basement. I figured I'd make them doubt it and blame it on the Duracell batteries which are only a month old. but the batteries are still super strong. I put batteries in children's toys and they have been working non-stop for the past 2 weeks. i thought ok Maybe there was foil on the contacts, no. Tried jumping the wire over…

Crashed after a few months, in the middle of my video meeting.

First let me say it's a 5 star product if it works. He decided to abandon me in the middle of my video meeting. I've had it for about two months now and I'm so glad I tested it again and it failed on a false alarm. I flooded the entire sensor with water and it didn't work until I disconnected and reconnected the battery. If it was a real water leak and not a test, my house would be flooded. I decided to give it two stars because it's the best design I've seen on a water alarm and it's very loud

Terrible sewage treatment averted!

My drain in the downstairs shower room, the lowest drain pipe in the house, was clogged and overflowed. Yes, cleaning was fun! I inserted a drain cleaner attached to a garden hose into a 4 inch drain and it cleaned the drain. After cleaning I figured since this basement shower is rarely used it would be a good idea to put a water detector in there in case it happens again before I can ask the plumber to run a video camera down the drain to check for water . broken pipe or obstruction. I hung an

  • High marks for support and durability from testers

Watch how it 'works'

After a large leak in the line to my water heater, my floors got wet and damaged. I decided that I wanted to be ready for next time. I took this device based on the rating. I placed the unit on the floor opposite the water heater just below the last leak. I checked it. It worked great. Fast forward in two months. The tank in the same water heater started leaking, and who knows how long, because this thing did nothing. When I finally got to my heater and water was dripping under the floor, the…

You would be crazy not to buy/use them, there are a lot of them!

These things will literally save you thousands of dollars on water damage repairs. I put one under every sink, dishwasher, behind every toilet, washing machine and fridge (water supply for the ice maker). In fact, anywhere that water is fed to a faucet or appliance. Most water damage does not result from a catastrophic failure (rupture of a water line or pipe) but from a small leak in an appliance or an undetected leak. over a Long period of time. These things are really delicate; The smallest…

Saved my new floor 2 months after purchase

After my upstairs neighbor's leak destroyed my floor and I was faced with the hassle and expense of installing a new floor I was given this watchdog water detector Monitoring. a cement floor in a stacked column of pipes behind my kitchen's drywall - on the path where the water was coming down from above. Using six feet of wire I have the sensor on the cement floor next to the pipes and the alarm itself is installed in the access panel next to the kitchen counter. Less than a week after…
