The way it was advertised it seems it could detect nearby presence of water (so I’d just place next to pit and when the water was getting high it’d detect that presence), but instead it seems the contacts needs to be contacted by the water. So it seems I’ll need to install it inside the pit, maybe 1-2ft down from the top.
Does anyone know a good way to install it inside the pit or to the expulsion pipe? Or should I be returning and looking for a sensor with leads?
This is the water leak sensor I got (still within return window)
