how is it powered?

Asked by: Anonymous
by 9-volt battery. I plan to change it out twice a year when Daylight Savings Time switches on and off. Just like my battery switching of our home alarms.

Does it alert you when the battery is about to die?

Asked by: john
Sort of. It makes a periodic chirp when the battery is low, like a smoke detector.

Our hot water tank leaked in the middle of the night and we were lucky to shut it off without any damage to our homes or the condos below. This unit probably saved us from a very expensive insurance claim. My only complaint is that it could be louder. I will now be looking for one that can contact me remotely if there is a leak when I'm not home. Money well spent!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb product that exceeded expectations. Rarely do you realize a need for something and then find it exactly like you envisioned. This is one of those needs for me that was exactly what I was looking for. And it came from my favorite store, Home Depot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Water heater leak alarm It installed easily, appeared to be well designed for the purpose but until there is a leak, it's functionality cannot be determined.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inexpensive insurance! Using on a water heater. Works exactly as advertised and is sensitive to even a very small amount of water. Great value.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bad quality I purchased 5 of RWD41 in late 2014. Within 6 months one of the units started chirping. I switched out the sensor cable and it stopped so I contacted Honeywell for a replacement sensor cable. They gave me a terrible time but eventually sent me a replacement. The 1 year limited warranty period expired about 4 months ago and another sensor cable went bad. These units cost over $20 each and the sensor cables don't seem to last more than a year or so. A replacement sensor cable is almost as much as a new RWD41. The quality of these sensors are terrible. Save your money and buy something that is more reliable.
