Does Leak Alert Electronic Water Detector come with a battery

Asked by: fjcag
I bought 3 singles, but HD sells a 3-pack that comes with batteries.

battery life ? how long will this unit last in "standby"?

how often do the 9v batteries need to be changed? every few years.....or every few months? just wondering if it puts a drain on the battery while waiting to come in contact with water.
Asked by: Bishop
It uses a 9-volt battery that uses very little power as long as it remains dry. It probably lasts as long as the ones in your fire & smoke alarms ... 1 year.

water leak in the wall where shower is mounted. Will this sensor be able to detect where the leak might be inside the wall?

Asked by: Bigdaddyj
No. It only detects moisture at the location where it sits.

Would this detect water damage on sheet rock?

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?
Asked by: KAC924
It will signal when in contact with a damp surface. It is typically laid on a horizontal surface, so it might not be useful on sheet rock.

We bought several of these after our water heater broke and caused a lot of water damage to our house. I wish we had gotten these sooner! About a week after we got them, one went off at night and we discovered a small leak under our sink in our master bathroom. So grateful that we got them! It saved us from having another big mess on our hands. I like that they are inexpensive, compact, and loud. I would highly recommend getting these.

A week before I bought this product, a water line under my bathroom started leaking slightly over 8 years since it was installed. I tightened the nut on the delivery line & watched it closely for a few days to "make sure" it had stopped. Several days later, it started leaking again, filled the bottom of the cabinet & overflowed into the bathroom floor. If I had the leak detector installed, I could have easily saved myself a lot of hassle, as well as kept from ruining the cabinet floor. These gadgets are very sensitive to any water contact. Just a wet finger on the bottom will set off a very loud alarm.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product Works well. A bit larger than other water alarms I've used but not an issue for where I placed them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from worked as described I tested it as instructed and it made a loud screech. I then placed it next to my washing machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely easy to place where water leaks may occur. Earlier this year toilet leaked overnight causing extensive damage to house. So wish we had these detectors! Placed one at each water source including all appliances. The contacts seem to be very sensitive to water (sweaty hands) during tests. The alarm is VERY loud and continuous. Would have definitely wakened us so we could have done damage control. Such an inexpensive way to prevent the disaster we experienced. Would highly recommend.
