Designed to protect your home from water damage we introduce to you the Uncle Albert Wireless Water Alarm Dialer! Comprised of a leak sensor, wireless transmitter and alarm dialer, this kit works effectively to detect water and subsequently capture your attention! After water has been detected by the sensor a signal is sent through the 36” wire to the transmitter. This wireless transmitter then sends a signal as far as 300’ away to the alarm dialer! While sounding an audible siren, the alarm dialer also operates as a delivery method for alarm voice messages. Capable of dialing up to six (6) different phone numbers, this effective piece of equipment will continuously dial these numbers until a confirmation code is input.
Have no fear when it comes to power outages! With a built-in rechargeable 9V battery, this unit will continue to operate for approximately 3.5 hours in the event of a blackout. Both the water sensor and wireless transmitter operate on their included 12V battery, with a life expectancy of approximately 5 years!
With the ability to monitor up to three (3) separate zones you are also able to record three (3) exclusive messages. When water is detected and this system sets into action your assigned message will sound, indicating exactly which zone the leak is occurring in. For example you could have a water sensor located in the laundry room and record your message for that zone to say: "Hi, this is Dave's water alarm system, there is a water leak in my laundry room."

Though the instructions could be a bit easier to interpret, it tested out as expected. I am giving it only 4 stars as I had an Uncle Albert unit several years ago and it failed. Decided to give it another try. If this one lasts more than a year I will then give it a 5 star rating. The flat sensor is sensitive to a moist areas and gave me some false alarms, I then moved to the two exposed wire cables an all seems to work OK now.

Our dirt basement has a sump pump that can't always keep up - and this water alarm does a great job of letting us know when that happens since we're not down there regularly.

we have installed this beside a leaky toilet and it works well....the water sensor is sensitive.
