how is it powered?

Asked by: sw
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.

Is it OK to test this unit by placing the sensing wire in a small amount of water, or is the sensing wire intended to be used only once?
Asked by: Steve
I tested mine in a sink of water before I ever installed it.

WaterDefense Water Leak Detection Alarm is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 51.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great in our RV underbelly where our water system... Works great in our RV underbelly where our water system is located. We had a small leak and the alarm notified us before there was anything more than a small puddle on the floor. Early notice avoided any potential water damage. The siren is loud enough to hear from inside the RV.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect After 3 floods, shocked to come across this. It's a must as my water heater is in the storage room that's part of my house & backs up to my living room & laundry/kitchen. Last flood, 2 years ago raised insurance $500. Never again I pray. So easy to put up, only 4 stars because it's not loud enough. It's at one end of the house when I stay in the middle w/the tv going. I'll most likely get 2 more to add to it. It would get 10 stars if it could be programed into a cell phone. If no one is home to hear it, it's of no use. Unless you get home before the flood is too bad. They need to make it larger, to hold several batteries, whatever will make it a real ALARM but I'm grateful to have it. I'm always home & water heaters aren't made like they used to be. If I only had a garage for the water heater. I recommend it, you may be home when it bursts. If you house is like mine, get 3 & don't forget to change the batteries

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No More Hidden Mold After having a "secret" leak under our water heater upstairs for over 5 years that no plumber could ever find and our ceiling dowstairs even caved in once we finally fixed the leak using a FLIR camera. To prevent future hidden leaks put one of these things by water heater and by washing machines to make sure we aren't caught off guard by hard to see slow leaks that cause mold to grow. Like a smoke detector but for water. So far so good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Protection I installed this under a new refrigerator. Hopefully (!) it will warn of impending doom for the all too expensive hardwood floor. I like the cord implementation for the moisture sensor, it allows for a much greater area and increases the chance of proper surface contact to alarm for water. The connection cord is 6' so the alarm can set out of sight on top of the refrigerator. I tested the device before installation and was impressed with the cord's ability to detect water and the voice of the alarm. Recommended!

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Water Leak Alarm The unit was very easy to install and reasonably priced. Just like smoke alarms--just remember to change the battery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It worked! I installed this thing about 6 months ago because we had an 11 year old hot water heater in the attic. The alarm went off a couple days ago - for some reason I thought it may be the battery. Sure enough, we had a leak in our hot water heater and the pan had some water. My $25 investment may have saved a great deal of money and ceiling drywall replacement (ie: headache). It works!
