Flood/Freeze Sensor Positioning

Would the flood/freeze sensor detect water if it were positioned on its side?  I'd like to place it in my small laundry area, but space is tight and there is not enough room for the sensor to lie flat on its bottom.  I could rest it on its side but want to make sure it would still detect a leak in that position.

Re: Flood/Freeze Sensor Positioning

Hey @BK. With the concern of your space in mind, I would say you should have the sensors facing on the side where water would most likely touch. The sensors that detect the water are on the bottom of the device (small metal circles), so it is best to have them facing the floor. Hope this helps!
