Attic air handler setup for Floodie flood sensor and Float Switch cable. Alert Labs recently released new technology to help prevent water damage from clogged air handler drain lines. The first of its kind, the cellular-based Float Switch Alert system sends alerts to contractors' phones when the float switch is tripped or when water is detected in the drain pan.
