I installed this detector and got a small cup of water from our water dispenser for testing. It didn't work. Then it occured to me that the water dispenser was distilled water which does not conduct. I used tap water (well water - good conductivity) and it worked fine. Flood water will have high conductivity.

I was little hesitant after reading so so reviews but I ordered it anyway and it passed the initial testing that I performed. I took the sensor and dipped it in the water and it had no triggering the alarm. I still plan to do more tests for reliability over time and hope it will work without any issues.

I have purchased two MCT-550's and neither would work out of the box after attaching the sensor cable to the wireless unit and putting the sensor in water. I was able to use the same method to get them operational. With the unit open, take a paper clip or pair of scissors (or anything else that can conduct) and bridge the two little flat head screws on the blue housing that clamps down on the wires to the sensor. Basically you are simulating a closed circuit in the sensor and the LED should blink 3 times indicating a flood has been detected. It will also blink when you remove the unit from the screws indicating the alarm restor. Once that is done try the sensor in water. For me, the sensor detects the water condition every time it's submerged.
