Is the sensor only good for one flood? Or is there a way to turn off the alarm once it sounds and reset the alarm?
Asked by: Kathy
The sensor (in ALARM mode) will sound as long as the probe is in water. Once the probe is dry (water level is below the probe or taken out of water), the whole sensor is automatically reset itself and ready for next detection. Or you can slide the switch to OFF position. We recommend to change the battery with each water detection incident, just to be sure that the sensor will work properly next time. Don't forget to slide the switch to ALARM position.

Can I use this product in sewer septic tank outside?
Asked by: Jj
You can use it where you want to monitor water leakage. But keep in mind that this sensor SK606 will sound the alarm until the battery is dead once water is detected. Do not use when temperature is below 14F (-10C), it may freeze the battery.

Is this battery operated? What is the purpose of the cord?

Asked by: Honey
The wire is to connect the sensor to the receiver. This way you can put the sensor close to where water may be detected and the receiver can be put higher so as it does not get wet.

Flood Water and Overflow Alarm is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Alarm allows for convenient set up but the alarm tone... Alarm allows for convenient set up but the alarm tone is not loud enough to be heard, on the main floor, from the basement. Returned it for a higher decibel alarm.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So Far, So Good I've installed one of these flood water & overflow alarms over a sump pump. The sending unit is on the sump pump cover with the long, attached wire running up to the 9V battery-powered receiver which is simply setting on a concrete shelf. I used a lithium battery so I don't have to change it for a while. As the instructions recommended, I tested the unit before doing anything and it worked fine. It can be set to sound "a tune" or an alarm sound...whichever you prefer. Either way, it's plenty loud. I've rated nearly everything as "good" only because it hasn't sounded the alarm by itself for any reason. Either way, It *looks* like it'll work fine. We'll see.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job but with a notation This was easy to install and works as advertised. The only little issue is that the sensor is to be placed at a level to detect a water level such as a wall. I have it under the sink and want to know if any waters leaks on the floor. It the sensor is placed with the suction cup on the floor it won't detect water until it is higher than the sensor base. To solve the problem I put the sensor pads face down on the floor (suction cup up) and taped it down but so water would hit the sensor pads. Works fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my intent , A Mcguyver type project. This was perfect for the price and how I intended to use it. Washing machine drain overflowed into unfinished basment. Not alot of water hit the ground before I shut down the machine. Placed a narrow tall plastic trash can below the drain trap( which is on the wall behind the washer) area. Placed sensor unit into bottom of trash can. Issue solved .
