Small floods inside the house are one the most annoying and expensive things that can happen to you. And you never seem to find out about them until the leak is too big to quickly patch up. Since you’re too lazy to do maintenance checks of all your plumbing on a regular basis, you best keep water damage at bay with these Water Leak Alarms.
Designed to be put in flood-prone areas of your digs, the small nubs of plastic will rattle off a 100db sound to warn you whenever it detects a hint of water. Place units inside the sink cabinet, under the water heater and other places in the house where leaks can occur to be sufficiently alarmed whenever you’ve got a puddle starting to build up.
The Water Leak Alarm comes in a closed case measuring 1.5 inches in diameter, with all electronics safely nestled inside the white cap-like frame. To keep water from creeping inside, no part of the interior is accessible, including the battery which you can’t replace. Not to worry, though since the onboard power source can juice the whole thing for up to 3 years, so you can let it sit a while.
Once the 100db alarm is triggered, it will keep wailing for 24 hours straight until you attend to it. Best make sure to keep a log of all places you hid one of the alarms in — the last thing you want is a persistent noise breaking eardrums around the house and no clue where it’s coming from.
You can buy the Water Leak Alarm in sets of three, priced at $19.99.
