Looking for under-pan moisture sensor to detect shower leaks
redoing our shower (first remodel in 2012 was poorly done, resulting in
leaks). New shower will use Schluter Kerdi shower system.
But….I’d like to lay down a thin moisture sensor, to detect problems earlier.
Does anyone make one?
I’d expect one design that would work could be merely simple wires that, effectively, measure the electrical resistance of the wood would work … if resistance begins to drop, the wood’s getting wet.
I’d hope for something on the market that doesn’t require
constant equipment connected to it…rather, a jack that you can plug in and
check periodically (and, it wouldn’t require power when not connected).
