Water Leak Alarm - Set of 3 3.8 5 80 80
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
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
Water Alarm's Do Not Work Three out of twelve were inoperable when tested. A 25% failure rate is unacceptable. January 28, 2014
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
water leak alarm upon arrivel 2 out 3 did not work. would not recommend. no way to replace battery. October 30, 2013
Failed to deliver as advertised Twelve water alarms arrived. Three worked. Eight were returned. November 18, 2013
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
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
