A must have for your apex By Patrick Em on 8/26/2017Patrick Em would recommend this product to a friendWho likes their significant other complaining about you flooding the room for the Nth time? With this you can prevent a flood that would ruin your floor when its just a drizzle. place one in your sump and one on each side of your tank and be worry free. Tank starts to leak? Its better to know through your apex than fond out the hard way. It has saved me tons of times, when my skimmer overflowed, or when my overflow box lost siphon and water was flooding my display tank. Yea some water still it the floor, but the apex caught it and shut the pumps off. Only down side is that every time it gets wet with saltwater, you HAVE TO rinse it with fresh water or it corrodes.
Insurance for your Tank By Bdub on 12/31/2015Bdub would recommend this product to a friendI added two of these to the ALD system. They work great. I will point out during testing of the sensors you have to leave the damp cloth on them continuously to stay triggered. I was just quickly wiping the sensor expecting it to trigger. Either I did not have the cloth wet enough or the sensor was drying to quickly. But as soon as I left the cloth on the sensor it tripped.
Great product By andrewnemeth3 on 6/4/2015andrewnemeth3 would recommend this product to a friendeasy to work with
Should i buy some of these? By TWANG on 5/18/2015TWANG would recommend this product to a friendIf you are reading these reviews you must be debating whether or not to purchase some of these sensors. When i first saw the price of these things i said to myself WOW these are super expensive! Are they worth it? Well, i ended up purchasing 4 of them and sleeping better at night. I know what you are thinking, so what made me purchase them? Well, let me tell you, hold your horsie. A week ago my skimmer went haywire and water overflowed out of the collection cup. My skimmer collection cup was sticking over the side of my sump and the water was everywhere. The damage was not that bad, i had a water bug sensor that went off in the middle of the night. Since we normally don't check what is going on in our tank stands all the time there could be a water leak going on for days. So take my advice, purchase a couple of them. $100 to pay now for these can save you thousands in water damage.
Works good By Andrew on 5/12/2015Andrew would recommend this product to a friendThis is great insurance. Works well and the alarming through email and text is awesome
Very sensitive! By Kendall on 4/9/2015Kendall would recommend this product to a friendI can't believe how sensitive these sensor are! Works better than I thought!
Works well. By MarkO on 2/28/2015MarkO would recommend this product to a friendDurable. Detects water every time.
Must get item By icereefer on 1/11/2015icereefer would recommend this product to a friendPlain and simple a must have if you want to prevent water on your floor.
So Worth the Money By Derik on 11/7/2014Derik would recommend this product to a friendAfter my overflow failed and my dart pumped 30G of water onto my floor I realized that could never, ever happen again. So I bought the ALD module for my Apex and it's awesome! I wrote a simple program to kill my sump, skimmer and chiller if the ALD switch triggers. For a dry run (ha!) test I poured about a tablespoon of water on the floor of my cabinet and the ALD caught it immediately and shut everything down as well as generating an alarm. I have no worries about flooding anymore.
Works By Jim on 6/27/2014Jim would recommend this product to a friendLike the LD module it just works. Now I just need to buy at least one more.
A must have for Large Systems By Griseum on 1/9/2014Griseum would recommend this product to a friendIf you've ever seen just a few gallons of water spread out across the floor, then you know what a nightmare a large flood can be. I currently have (x2) ALD modules on my Apex with 2 Solid Surface Probes on each (x4).
Having them spread out, and in strategic locations, I can tell where the water on the floor is coming from based upon which probe sends the alert first.
Having it laid out this way gives me a good idea of which device is failing, allowing me to remotely turn off the outlet of the suspected piece of equipment, preventing more water from leaking.
WORKS GREAT By Jeff on 12/15/2013Jeff would recommend this product to a friendHaven't need yet, but tested and works great shutting off the pumps that I set up.
Ask a question
1. What is the dimension of the actual module?
2. Is the module adhesive mounted?
These will come with 8 foot cords attached. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
The leak detection probes will work with all models of Apex including the Jr, but they will all require the ALD module to function, and then the probes are plugged into the ALD.
Hope this helps. Have a great day!
This is used to sense if any water is on the floor and will not work in the sump. There is an alternative which is the Neptune Systems Breakout Box and a standard float switch. This could sense is the float switch is triggered or not. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
I am considering setting up the full leak detection module and probes. Can I set this up to turn off my return pumps if it detects a leak? Otherwise this would be useless if I am away from the aquarium
