The Ideal Security SK616 Wireless Water Detector Alarm is a perfect option for alerting you to potential flooding, leaks, bath tub and sump-pump overflow, or other potential water-damage situations.

Rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by water alarm I was looking for a reliable water alarm. ... This ideal security alarm isfeature rich. You can use it as a stand alone unit or you can pair it with their auto dialer and have it call you (and anyone else you setup) if the sensor is triggered. As a stand alone unit it has a very loud siren that can also be used in conjunction with the one on the auto dialer. It comes with all the parts needed, best of all is a stencil with the screws position marked for hassle free drillingthe holes for mounting the unit. Setting up was fairly easy and wick. The product also shipped quickly and arrived really fast too. Overall my experience was great. The unit works as advertised down to calling the designated numbers. January 3, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't bother This seemed like the perfect alarm system for us. Unfortunately, one sensor never worked and due to the positioning in the basement, it barely sent a signal to the rest of the house. The ability to dial the phone was a wonderful feature. Sadly, with one sensor not working, the system was no good for us. January 27, 2015
