Do you have a basement with a pump to keep the rain water away from your valuables? Have you ever had the pump fail because of your electricity being out due to a storm? I have and let me tell you the results are not fun to deal with.
In my first home, my pump had been clogged with some debris and couldn't suck the water from my basement. The water levels continued to rise and it was only after the carpets were soaked that I checked the pump to find out what the problem was. If I had only had something that could have alerted me to the rising water I could have checked it earlier and prevented the water from getting to the carpet.
Now, there is an accessible solution to having to look down into the pump to see if the water is about to flood your home. In fact, you don't have to have any vision at all to use this product. It would be great for sighted folks as well.
Protect your home against costly water damage and dangerous toxic mold by catching water leaks early. The Water Warning Leak Detection Alarms are battery-powered sensors that can be placed almost anywhere. They emit a loud alarm the moment their stainless-steel sensors touch water, alerting you instantly that your home is in danger. This package of five can protect up to five different appliances or areas of your home.
Since each sensor can be placed upright or flat, a Water Warning Leak Detection Alarm can fit easily and discreetly at the base of water heaters, sinks, or toilets, as well as near plumbing connections or hoses, any water-using appliance or device that has the potential to leak and cause damage. Their stainless-steel sensors won't rust or stain your floors.
When a Water Warning Leak Detection Alarm senses water, it sounds its loud, 110-decibel alarm intermittently for up to 3 days, so even if you're not at home when it first senses water, you'll know as soon as you arrive. The Water Warning Leak Detection Alarms are powered by the included 9-volt batteries and are sold individually or in a pack of five. Dimensions: 3 1/8" x 2 5/8" x 7/8"
