Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 87 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Water Leak Alarm set is good My only comment is that alarm sound could be louder. But, given the small size of the units, I guess that would be difficult. I used the units in under-sink cabinets. September 14, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by 2 of 3 Water Leak Alarm worked correctly The item is great however the instruction tell you to test each water Leak alarm, but when I did this only 2 of 3 worked. October 4, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Floods These tested well. Hope I never hear them go off but having them gives some comfort that we won't wake up to a flooded basement May 16, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not sure if this will work I wanted something in my basement to alert me if my sump pump stopped working or my water heater started leaking. I am not sure the sound from these will be loud enough to hear upstairs. My lower level is open to the upper (I don't have a basement door for example) and I am still doubtful that the warning sound will be loud enough. I have only had this product a few weeks so I also do not know how long the batteries will actually work. There is no way to replace the batteries, so when the batteries die you have to buy another alarm. The alarms are supposed to last up to three years. October 3, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Water leak alarms The alarms are very quiet, would not hear if they went off. March 24, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Have not been able to test them We just received our leak detectors, and when testing them with water, they did work. It is our hope that we will not need them, but they are next to our sump-pumps, and that helps us to sleep better, at night. Sorry that we could not give your product a better rating. If you would ask us in a couple of months, we would be able to let you know more. Thank you for asking for our opinion. April 16, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Great idea - poor performance Nice look and price. The db rating needs to be substantially louder . March 8, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by No Way To Evaluate As These Are One-Time Use The sensors probably are fine, but since the instructions warn the buyer not to test them, there's now way to know. Also, I am VERY disappointed with Improvements Catalog for sending these in a hugely oversize box and for sending a product that had lost 1/3 its value. Instructions say to replace every 3 years, but the ones I got in March, 2012 are tagged "expire January 2014," or less than two years. As noted, very disappointed overall. March 21, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by Needs improvement Great idea, but in serious need of improvement. No where near loud enough! Actually had one go off under the kitchen sink. The wife heard it, but ONLY cause she walked into the kitchen & right up to the sink. Knew she could hear something, but not loud enough to figure out what it was. Between the two of us, we figured out what that "little annoying sound" was. Also, no way to replace the battery. Once the battery dies, we are expected to just throw it away & buy new ones. Wrong answer. If they made it LOUDER and gave me a way to replace the battery it would be worth the money. May 22, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by Water Alarm's Do Not Work Three out of twelve were inoperable when tested. A 25% failure rate is unacceptable. January 28, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Questionable product Some have worked, some didn't, Improvements were gracious enough to replace the ones that did not work at all. Time will tell, but at this point the basement ones, if they went off, I probably would not hear, as the door is kept closed and we have a 3 level home. never know till you try a product. Thank you for the quick turnaround on my replacements. Will definitely enjoy working with Improvements again! March 4, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed The product instructions say to replace the detector if it's been tested. If I can't test the product how do I trust that it's dependable? October 27, 2011
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very faint The alarm is only a hum. Can't really hear if you put in the basement and you are on the next floor above. November 1, 2011
Rated 1 out of 5 by Worthless. There aren't too many things to say about this product. If the floor is the tiniest bit damp, this thing will sound off. April 6, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Junk Total waste of money. Pathetic. Two of the three are almost dead straight out of the package, the third could not be heard over a normal conversation. I would get my money back if I could. Shame on you. October 4, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by NOT WORTH BUYING These are so tiny and the sound is barely audible from another room, let alone another floor. I bought them because I am concerned about my basement sump pump failing These would not give me piece of mind, that's for sure. I'll keep looking for a better product. November 16, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Water leak alarm This product might work fine when you are close to the area that you are watching for water..however, in the basement the alarm is not loud enough for us to hear unless you are very close to it.. April 24, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Leak Alarm Problem When my refrigerator began to leak water on my oak floor the "Water Leak Alarm" sat quietly in the middle of the puddle. As soon as I broke the surrounding water tension by moving the alarm slightly it began to whistle. I think it needs to sense water dripping down from the top, not slowly forming from the bottom surface. I now have all 3 placed directly under the fridge door. If that works better and I will correct this review. August 6, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Water Leak Alarm - do not buy! I bought a total of nine individual alarms (three 3-packs). I had to return six of them because the battery was dead or so low you could only hear the alarm if you were 1-2 feet away. The info stamped on the bottom, "Replace by: 04/2016" would indicate they should have been good until then.The other three did work but the alarm was not near as loud as I would have expected and it was a steady high pitched tone. I think it would be more effective with and on/off tone and perhaps a bit lower. This is a great concept, just poorly executed. I returned the six for credit. August 14, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by water leak alarm upon arrivel 2 out 3 did not work. would not recommend. no way to replace battery. October 30, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Failed to deliver as advertised Twelve water alarms arrived. Three worked. Eight were returned. November 18, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Do not work Not one of the three had an alarm that worked when I tested them. Did not wish to pay another $8.95 shipping to return them. That would have made them cost over $38 with the original shipping cost, so we tossed them. November 30, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Clever product, BUT... This is a clever idea. However, when water it sensed, it emits a VERY WEAK alarm. Difficult to hear even in the next room. March 19, 2014
