Just Joined the Ranks of Those Saved by a Water Sensor


#1

I just got my first real water leak alert. I have two hot water tanks side by side, sitting in trays in the attic. One sprang a leak late this morning (and not a slow leak either) and my ST water sensor did it’s trick. I got a voice notification on all my Sonos, lights turned on and my phone went crazy. Water is off and the leak contained to the tank tray and a plumber on the way (I have a home warranty too). Last time my tanks leaked they overflowed the trays before I noticed.

Feeling very relieved right now.

What's the consensus on water valves?

Awesome to know you won’t have to deal with extra headache. Water leak is a pain and sometime it’s hard to detect.

Very good! I need to set one of those up as well. What water sensor do you have?


#4

The SmartThings one. I’ve read complaints about ST’s other sensors but this water sensor has been fine.

I bought a couple on sale at lowes and they seem to be working good 6 months later. Just did some recent testing too.

Mine was pretty well in the water but has reset to ‘dry’ again and worked again with me testing it a few times. I’ll test it a few more times to make sure it’s not damaged before relying on it again. Battery life has been good. Still sitting at 78% and it was deployed in September.
