Water Sensors Can Be Placed Under Appliances

The great thing about a water sensor is how useful it is. Some can detect a fraction of an inch of water overflow on the floor and sound an alarm or tone to let you know.

Here are places you can put water sensors:

  • Under the bathroom sink, where leaks can cause water damage to cabinets or flooring.
  • Next to the water heater to detect early signs of leaks and save you money.
  • Under refrigerators, dishwashers and washing machines. Catch leaks before they damage your floors and prevent the unhealthy growth of mold.
  • In your basement. Put sensors in areas where you think water will collect.
