Buzzer sounds when water is detected. Water sensor can be placed at a distance by cutting the board and using wires to connect the sensor. 9V operation. Battery not included.

Note: Kits cannot be returned or exchanged once assembly has begun.

Finally - a practical water alarm!
Should have bought these *before* my hot water tank sprung a leak. Now I have three: one by the washer, by the hot water heater, one by an outside basement wall.

Very little current draw. After almost 2 years, my standard Raovac Alkaline battery still has 9.3V in it!

Extremely easy to make, loud, sensitive, cheap, easy to use
=> very practical!

Works great!
I have this near my basement sump. I even used a 9V transformer to power this up so I never have to worry about the battery. This unit is very sensitive.

Water Sensor
This kit is easy to build, work wells, and can be used to trigger a relay instead of sounding the buzzer. Kit includes an on-board water probe, but circuit is so sensitive that you can just use two wires, with skinned ends for a probe.

I haven't built this kit, but have built similar projects. To convert the kit to run on 12 volts, you can use a voltage regulator. Or: Insert four silicon 1N4148 diodes in series between the battery and the circuit. Forward bias the diodes. (All diode anodes must point the same way, toward the battery. If you get the diodes wrong, the circuit won't work, but no damage will result.) Each diode drops 0.7 volt. If you want to skip the diodes: The Darlington has a 30-volt rating which should be fine. The piezo has a 15-volt rating, which is too close to 12 volts for comfort. All Electronics stocks a piezo and an electromechanical buzzer that have higher peak voltage ratings. You could substitute one of these. *CAUTION*: If you use the electromechanical buzzer, wire a reverse-biased 1N4003 diode across the buzzer. Otherwise, the buzzer's spike will kill the transistor. For 12-volt operation, one bias resistor *might* require a change. You might have to increase the top bias resistor value by 30 percent or more. (I doubt that the change is necessary.) If you need the change, I recommend going from 10K to 15K.

Very Good kit
Really functional device. Alerted me to a leak that could have caused extensive water damage. thanks
