When mounting the transmitter, make sure it is not mounted on metal or where
there are any large metal objects between the device and the alarm panel, this
can be tested prior to or after installation.
Mounting the probe to a vertical surface like a wall enables you to monitor an
area for rising water levels. Use where ever unwanted water may accumulate.
Suggested areas near: water heater, washing machines, under sinks, and sump
pumps.
Water Detector Mounting:
Mount the transmitter as high as possible, the water probe has a 6’ cable
attaching it to the transmitter. The probe can be mounted to the wall or floor
using mounting screws or adhesive strips provided.

Thank you for your purchase of the Winland Wireless WaterBug® model
WBTX. The WBTX is completely electronic and is designed to detect
water.

The WBTX is not a self-contained warning device. For proper operation, it
must be used in conjunction with a wireless alarm system. It is designed
so that the transmitter mounts on a wall or other flat vertical surface, and
the remote probe is placed in the location where water leakage is most
probable.


Moisture forming a bridge between the two metallic contacts on
a remote probe is all that is needed for the unit to signal an alarm
condition. The output on the WBTX will remain in alarm state until the
moisture bridge is broken. As sensitive as the WBTX is, it will not alarm
due to high humidity or condensation. The WBTX is ideal for use in
homes, offices, computer rooms, warehouses, etc.
