False Water Leaks in Humid Conditions?

1 post in this topic

So I have Utilitech Water Leak Detector underneath my fish tank, in the cabinet with my sump. For those not familiar with aquariums, it's just another tank of water for filtration essentially. However the water is fairly warm (80-82 degrees roughly), uncovered, moving all the time, and in an enclosed area, which leads to a pretty humid environment for the leak detector. It pretty much always reports as being wet, even though it's not. See below:

Here is what I'm dealing with (cabinet door removed):

I have the "remote" sensor inside the cabinet, down low (pictured below). It is not touching the tiles. It's dry. The other end (with the batteries is outside of the cabinet.)

Am I missing something obvious? Just a bad sensor at this point?
