Leak Alert™ Electronic Water Detector
No home should be without a Zircon Leak Alert™ electronic water detector. Place it near sinks, water heaters, sump pumps, and washing machines and find out about leaks before they can cause major water damage. When the Leak Alert™ detector comes in contact with water, it sounds an 85 dB alarm.

Prevent serious water damage in your home with the help of Leak Alert water detector. This self-contained battery-powered unit will sound a loud alarm the second it gets wet, alerting you to a potential water leak.

Place it anywhere the potential for flooding or leaking exists:
- Under sinks
- Near water heaters
- In basements
- Near dishwashers and refrigerators
- Under fish tanks
- Near plumbing and toilets

  • Loud alarm (85 dB) sounds with direct water contact
  • Floats and signals for up to 72 hours
  • Fully automatic operation — no wiring required
  • Low battery indicator for optimum safety and performance

How does it work?

The Leak Alert has two external metal strips with mild electrical current running through them. If both strips get wet, through a plumbing leak, flood, or surrounding moisture condensing on the surface, the electrical circuit will complete and the alarm will sound. These strips are placed close together and run to the bottom of the Leak Alert, so even the slightest bit of water will be enough to complete the circuit and warn you of the problem.

Make sure the Leak Alert is placed on its back with the metal contacts touching the surface. You can test the unit by touching both strips with one finger, but be prepared for the loud alarm!
