    nice prototype!

    If you want to make a usable version the following might help.

    If you connect a reed switch to the connectors of a water alarm sensor you have a similar effect.

    Conrad in Germany is just selling reduced water alarms fuer some 2,40 Euro.They include buzzer, housing, battery...

    (I made a similar project with them using a microprocessor because I wanted to have a delayed and "growing" alarm)
