Leak Sensor Problems with Arduino

Hi there,

I am having issues setting up the SOS leak sensor with an Arduino. I’m using the sample code given on the website to test the use of the sensor, however, the leak sensor is most of the time high and writes “leak!” to the serial monitor. I also have it set up so that when the pin is pulled high, an LED on the Arduino is lit. The Arduino LED flickers, but the LED on the actual leak sensor board is not, although still sending high signals to the Arduino. I have used different cables, different Arduino boards, different probes, and even two separate leak sensor boards, so i’m skeptical to think something is wrong with the hardware. If I move the probes or wires, the output flickers between high and low, but it should seem more reliable. Maybe something with the code? Please advise. Thank you.
