Answer: 
How long a battery will last depends upon quite a few factors, such as type of battery (carbon-zinc, alkaline, lithium) and whether the alarm has sounded, since when the alarm sounds, it uses up the battery. Standby draw is minimal and supposedly a good battery will last 3 - 5 years. My recommendation is t est your battery every few months and to keep a log of when it has been tested.
Testing is easy.

Testing is easy. All you need to do is to wet your finger (and sometimes it is wet enough without wetting it) and touch it across the two sensing terminals on the bottom of the unit. If the unit screams, the battery is OK. You may need to dry the terminals to shut it off again.

Answer: 
Hi. It really depends on the battery. Nine volt batteries are very inconsistent. I'd recommend major brand names and brand new (from the store) batteries. You should be able to get a couple years out of a really good battery or more. The detector will go off when the battery power get too low. I hope this was helpful. Thanks

You will need a different device to "see" through the wall to detect moisture on the other side. the Leak Alert is only designed to detect standing water on a horizontal surface, such as a floor or cabinet bottom or counter top.
When there is water behind a wall, it results in the location of the water being at a cooler temperature than the surroundings. This cooler temperature is measured with an

Answer: 
Hi. The "community" response is correct. Water has to come into direct contact with the Leak Alert. It cannot detect a leak within a wall. Thanks.

Hi. Generally, no they don't. But I have heard of them being sold with batteries either in the past or with certain retailers. However, I wouldn't count on the units coming with batteries.

My insurance adjuster used a device that looked like a stud finder, but it detected water damage when he used it against the wall. If not is there another residential device that I can use?

Answer: 
Your insurance adjuster probably used an infrared thermometer to detect the water behind your sheetrock. The Leak Alert is designed to detect water on a horizontal surface, such as the floor or pan beneath a water heater, the bottom of a cabinet below a sink, the floor or surface onto which an air conditioner cooling coil might leak if the condensate drain is clogged, etc. It does not work on vertical Read More
Your insurance adjuster probably used an infrared thermometer to detect the water behind your sheetrock. The Leak Alert is designed to detect water on a horizontal surface, such as the floor or pan beneath a water heater, the bottom of a cabinet below a sink, the floor or surface onto which an air conditioner cooling coil might leak if the condensate drain is clogged, etc. It does not work on vertical surfaces under normal mounting conditions and cannot "see" through walls. It is especially useful in multistory condominiums where a leak on an upper floor, if undetected, can leak to floors beneath and cause significant damage to other units. Read Less

Answer: 
Hello. The Leak Alert will not do that. What the insurance adjuster probably used was a moisture meter, which are hand held devices that detect how much water is in the air or walls. The Leak Alert will alert you to the presence of water, but will not measure the amount. We hope this helps.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by IT WORKED!!! I bought 3 of these over a year ago...placed on floor by water heater, dishwasher & washing machine. Tuesday night I heard beeping and after finding where it was coming from - it was my 6 yr. old water heater! It went off at the first drip of water on my floor. I was able to shut off the water heater value & circuit breaker and had my new Home Depot Rheem heater installed the very next day. No flooding...no damage! This made me remember to go ahead and replace the 9 volt batteries in all 3 too! Highly recommended & very inexpensive! July 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Water Leak Detector Very easy to use. Provides peace of mind in unaccessible spaces June 14, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good choice for water leak detectors Install the battery and set in place. That's it. The important thing is that some leak detectors can be tipped over accidentally, and in this condition, they do not detect leaks immediately, if at all. The zircon cannot tip over, so it is always positioned to detect and alert the leak. July 28, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sure hope it works When I tested it I found that the alarm is a loud Morse code S-O-S sound. I put it out of the way behind the toilet. It hasn't alarmed yet but, after having had two insurance claims for bathroom leaks in my high-rise condo apartment, I sure hope it works. May 12, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Leak Alert Electronic Water Detector The product is doing what it was purchased for...awaiting a leak, if it occurs, at a new water heater, at which time it will sound an alarm. June 2, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A must have, can save you $$ on water damage repairs. The water leak detector will give you peace of mind against extensive water damage and early detection. I gave it as a Christmas gift to my kids and relatives. It has already proved effective on two occasions. January 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Seems good for me I bought 3 of these water detectors about 3 weeks ago. All 3 passed the moisture test. When installing the battery, be sure to place it in the location provided by the instructions so the unit will float if needed. I have one unit installed inside the access hole under my bathtub, one in the drip pan of my water heater and one under my kitchen sink. In the past, I have had a similar product in the water heater pan that did alert me to a small heater tank leak. However that unit failed over time. I assume it failed due to heat from the water heater being in my attic September 17, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works well One of those things you install and forget about, hopefully never needing it, but there just in case. It was easy to test and I am sure it will work when needed. July 8, 2014
