A busted hot water heater can end up costing you a significant amount of money. Not just the expense of replacing the hot water heater, but the clean up and replacement caused by the water damage. The problem is, it's really hard to know if and when something like this is going to happen---that is unless you have something like the the WA-434RTL Long Range Household Alert kit by Skylink.
This water alert kit alarms you the instant the sensor detects water. Once water is detected, the sensor will transmit a wireless signal up to 800 feet a way to the plug-in receiver and cause the respective zone on the receiver to flash and beep for 15 seconds when in alert mode.
Setup is easy. The first step is to pair the sensor to with the receiver. This is a simple process that's done with some simple pushes of the pairing buttons (see attached manual).
Once you have paired the transmitter with the receiver, test the pairing and the sensor by placing the end of the sensor in water. Once tested, mount it using the supplied mounting accessories. Simply mount the transmitter portion at least 6 inches above the end of sensor.
The sensor included in this kit is powered by a 3V lithium battery. The receiver plugs into a standard wall outlet. The sensor/transmitter has a max range (to the receiver) of up to 800 feet. Walls, construction materials, and other environmental factors will diminish the signal.
The receiver has four zones, and up to four transmitters/sensors may be paired to each zone. The receiver has three operational settings: alert, alarm, and off.
In Alert Mode - The corresponding zone will flash and also beep a number of times that corresponds to the respective zone in a continuous loop for 15 seconds.
In Alarm Mode - When activated, the corresponding zone will flash and the alarm will sound for it's max duration setting of 3 minutes. Pressing the mute button on the receiver will stop the alarm sound.
