Greywater Overflow Solution

I found a great little device from Amazon that alarms when it gets wet. My greywater floods into the shower stall and then onto the floor making a real mess. I'm sure I'm not the only person to have this wonderful experience, LOL.

The item is the Leak Frog and it really works After showering, just dry the shower floor and place the Leak Frog on the shower floor, if the contacts on the bottom get wet it sound off.

Looks like a great idea! I have had at least 4 shower overflows, that have wet my bedroom carpet and like you said, generally makes a mess. Sometimes, it happens when we are just sitting in the coach, reading or working on the laptop. It's a "silent" danger! The last time, a neighbor camper came over and knocked on our door and said that we had water dripping out of both our side walls! We didn't have a clue! I'm going to order one right away! Thanks!

I don't have that particular one but I do have two others that I use under the kitchen sink and behind the toilet. Each has saved me from a leak that might have gone unnoticed for awhile.

I don't see why anyone would need such a thing. Don't you watch your tank monitors.

I think they're a great idea! And if I didn't? I wouldn't make a mean remark.

Nice idea. I could see using it in other locations to get an early warning on any slide out or sink leaks. As for the nasty comment - I guess we all know what the capital "A" stands for. Some people sure are rude.

I see why folks would need such a thing. One day, you may also.

Leak Frog would be a fantastic back-up for tank monitors that may lie to us when they get a slight residue, and for a faucet that leaks or was left dripping overnight, or or a leaking slide, or other such mishaps.

Just wondering where your monitor is for a slide out leak?

I have several of these in my stick house and in several locations of the MH.
They also make nice house gifts for children and grandchildren.

My tank monitors (as well as many other's) are practically worthless, as they read full, all the time. Also, even if they worked great, who thinks of going to check them every minute? It only takes a little while, for the shower to fill to overflowing. And.....like another said, who has a monitor for a slide out leak or an overflowing shower?

The best thing about it, is that there is an "alarm" that lets you know something is wrong, in plenty of time, for you to act, to prevent a mess! My FROG is being shipped today! Thank you eodgator!

Good device. My nose has never let me down. But I do have to go into the bathroom for it to go into alarm mode.Also,my RO water system drains into the gray water tank and despite watchful monitoring,I could end up with a mess. I need one of those!

I didn't intend to insult anyone. But I choose to not worry about every possible thing that could go wrong. I'll do my regular maintenance and if something else goes wrong, I'll fix it. Is it possible I could get a leak somewhere? Yes. Do I need a $25.00 plastic frog to tell me I have a leak? No. To each his own. I'm sure my 12 and 14 year old granddaughters will be thrilled to have one of those frogs.
