The new GHL Profilux Floor Leak Detector is another gadget to help avoid a discouraging and damaging saltwater overflow and give you a heads up before a full-blown aquarium catastrophe occurs. Sure there are water leak alarms and sensors that work just fine but those of you looking to stay in the GHL family may be interested in this specific floor leak detector. The GHL floor leak detector uses an 80-pin senor to detect the leak sending a signal to the controller and you can link multiple sensors together to have a large area covered.
The brief description doesn’t give you too many details and left many more questions than answers. First off, no details on how its going to alarm you — audible tone, text or email message to a mobile device — so we aren’t sure how effective it can be. Second it is only good for conductive water or water that has impurities in it like salt. Next since the pins are the only part that can be submerged in water, they don’t appear to be too practical especially in the case of a surge of water coming its way. Finally, no pricing details so we aren’t even sure what this will set you back. So far the jury is still out on why we would chose this over a simple Honeywell Water Defense Leak Sensing Alarm.
