The Original Water Alarm is the early warning for leaky pipes, faulty water heaters, dishwashers and washing machines. Use the Water Alarm to detect even the smallest amounts of moisture before mold, mildew and serious water damage can occur. It can be placed near bath tubs, toilets, beneath sinks, or it can be used as a basement water alarm for early notification of flooding or leaky pipes. Most problems start with a small leak and grow to a disastrous water flow. Use the water alarm to detect those small leaks before it has a chance to get out of control.

This is what happened... The manufacturer recommends that you place the alarm on a moist towel to make sure it works correctly. I did that and the first alarm immediately activated its alarm. It sounded very much like the alarm in a typical smoke detector, and it was quite loud. Perfect! That is exactly what I was hoping for.
I then tested the second Gizmode. The second unit activated when I placed it on the moist towel, but its alarm had significantly lower volume than the first one. I would estimate that the second unit was at least 50% to 60% lower in volume than the first unit. It was obviously defective. Thank goodness Amazon.com is very good at issuing refunds. However, I really wonder if other people will get a "low volume unit" without knowing that something is seriously wrong.
Bottom Line: If you buy one of these water alarms and it does not immediately sound as loud as one of your smoke detectors, there is something wrong with it. My first unit appears to be well made and I would rate it 4 or 5 stars. However, since the second unit was defective, I think an overall rank of 3 stars is a fair grade.
PS For whatever it is worth, these water alarms are made in China. Buyer beware... I hope this review helps you.
UPDATE (jan 2015)-
Just saved me again. Sat down to watch the football playoffs on a very rainy sunday when I heard the beeping in the basement.
the main sewer line backed up. Fortunately I was there to get out the pump before any damage was done.
I have one alarm by the water heater and another at the other end of the basement by the trap.
Thinking of adding another by the washing machine in the middle (and as a backup)
