HYDROS Leak Sensor - Sense Port Accessory


The HYDROS Leak Detection Sensor is a solid surface leak detector that can sense when freshwater or saltwater is underneath it and use that information to protect your aquarium, home, or office from total disaster.


The way it works is simple: plug the sensor into any Sense Port on a HYDROS OS device (like the Control 2 or Control 4). It does not require any additional power source. Next, place the leak detector in a place that makes sense: next to your sump, under your stand, on the lid of a protein skimmer, under your RO/DI system or saltwater mixing station, next to a freshwater ATO reservoir, underneath your carpet, or wherever else there is a potential for leaks. Finally, configure the HYDROS app to perform whatever action(s) you want to happen when a leak is detected: flash a specific light color on your HYDROS controller, turn off a pump, shut down your protein skimmer, send you a mobile alert so you can come home or ask a friend to check on the tank. It’s easy to do and you’re in control.


One common complaint about aquarium leak detectors currently on the market is that they rust on the bottom. Not the HYDROS Leak Detection Sensor. It is completely encapsulated with a safety seal that makes the unit impregnable. This isn’t a product you’re going to need to replace. It’s built to stand the test of time. You can connect as many Leak Detection Sensors as you have Sense Ports available. Using WiFi Power 4 power strips and Smart Plugs, you can power off equipment in another room if a leak is detected. You could have a specific light turn on in your living room or bedroom if a leak is detected. With HYDROS, you could can all sorts of clever stuff to make sure you’re in the know should the worst happen!
