How does the LeakAlertor 5000 work?
Just as a stethoscope allows a doctor to detect heart problems the patient doesn’t know exists, the LeakAlertor identifies toilet leaks that most people cannot see or hear. A leaking flapper produces a drop in the water level inside the toilet tank, causing the fill valve to activate and refill the tank, which usually lasts several seconds. This phenomenon is often referred to as a “phantom flush”. As the flapper continues to leak, this process repeats itself.
Whether due to a “phantom flush” or normal toilet flush, an activated fill valve produces turbulence inside the tank, which in turn produces vibration. The LeakAlertor has been designed to specifically identify and isolate the vibration signature of a fill valve action and qualify it as either a normal flush or a refill action in response to a leaking flapper.

What do the Alerts mean?
*At the END of every flush cycle the LeakAlertor will flash/beep to give you a status indication:
GREEN continuous flashes:
No leak, no problem!
YELLOW flashes and BEEPS:
The battery is low and will need to be changed. Alerts stop at the end of the flush cycle.
RED flashes and BEEPS:
A leak or other failure has been detected. Make repairs, LeakAlertor automatically resets after repair.
RED continuous flashes and BEEPS:
Flapper is stuck open or toilet is overflowing!! Shut off water and correct the problem.
