WaterBug Sensor-based Single-zone Water Leak Detector

WaterBug Water Leak Detector

Single Zone Water Leak Detection

The Waterbug leak detector alarm is designed to detect the ingress of water in sensitive areas where high value equipment and information are present. The Waterbug is capable of working with a variety of detection devices including sensor cable and probes.

  • Monitors for water leaks and outputs an audio visual alarm
  • Can be connected to a BMS and a solenoid valve to switch off the water supply

On detecting the presence of water the Waterbug will go into an alarm status. There are two versions of the Waterbug, the BMS Waterbug and the Waterbug+. The BMS Waterbug has no local alarm outputs and is simply connected via a volt free relay to the BMS. On the detection of a leak the relay will changeover and the BMS will alert to the situation. The Waterbug+ has the same functionality as the BMS Waterbug with the addition of a local audio and visual output on the alarm panel.

  • Typical applications include archive rooms, comms room, computer rooms, electrical switch rooms, boiler houses, plant rooms and small data centres.

The Waterbug, in addition to having a visual alarm output when water has been detected, it also has a visual alarm to indicate that there is a fault with the cabling.

Dimensions: 127x75x45mm
Power Supply: 240VAC (optional 12 – 24vDC & 110VAC)
Power Usage: 50mA
Output Signal: No-volt relay
Relay Rating: 240V AC 2 amp


Aqualeak offer a range of different sensing techniques which will allow you to tailor your leak detection system to suit your application.

These include sensor cable, sensor probes and sensor pads. The type of sensing method used depends on the environment and requirement you have for leak detection. All the sensors work on the principle that water is a conductive element and can in effect close an open circuit. Sensor range and sensor accessories details
Water Leak Detection Valve Range

Solenoid valves are available for controlling the water flow to either switch off the supply in the event of a leak, or switch it on when demanded.

Valves are available in sizes between ½” and 2” and have zero lift specification and do not require any pressure differential for them to operate.  Water Leak Detection Valve Range Details
RA Remote Repeater Alarm

This is a miniature alarm repeater designed as a stand-alone module and can be linked in series to repeat an alarm condition in several locations at the same time.

The RA remote repeater panel can accept an alarm signal from any no-volt relay output. Can be used with the Waterbug, AquaTraq, OTF, OTMA, RGO, Oilbug and Redeye1 alarm panels.  RA Remote Repeater Alarm Details
Solodial Telephone Dialling Unit

The SoloDial automatic dialing unit can dial up to eight different telephone numbers to alert the recipient the alarm has been activated.

This has a single input which will connect to any volt free contact in the Aqualeak alarm system range.  The SoloDial will try each number in sequence until the alarm has been acknowledged. Solodial Telephone Dialling Unit Details
SMS Alarm

The SMS alarm can be used to send text messages to up to five different phones when an alarm is triggered.

Up to four different devices can be connected to the alarm inputs and a bespoke message for each transmitted. It works with any mobile network SIM card and requires no fixed telephone line to operate making it ideal for working in remote locations. SMS Alarm Details
Beacon and Sounder

When positioned on the outside of a room or on the outside of a building the beacon/sounder can be used to alert that an alarm has been triggered.

It has a very load klaxon and a bright flashing light that would be difficult to ignore even from a considerable distance away. Beacon and Sounder Details
