    Default floodstopper leak detection system

    while I think these are probably 2X more expensive than they should be, it seems like a great idea. Yet, I find very little info on them online- besides the mfg/dealer info.

    Opinions?

    Having used cheaper versions (Floodstops), I'd always worry about false alarms caused by, say a sweating toilet, when my wife is in the shower and I was not at home. Probably unaware how to dry everything off and restart the water, she'd be without water until I got back.

    So I ditched them. They went off a few times at night after a steamy shower as well. Waking everyone up with the alarm (if fitted).

    The only one I do keep, and not a cheapo like the Floodstops, is a Watts intelliflow on the washer. That seems like a good idea. Until it breaks anyway.
