It's called the shotgun approach to forum posting, LOL.

Sir, you may find part number LSH-5-01-A from Coto Technology, suitable.

Stupid... Typing in "home made water sensor" into Google will get the answer faster than asking this on even one forum.

For home, personal use, I would make one with a microswitch, level, and float. Or, use two plates of metal to form either a capacitor using the water as a poor dielectric, or a resistor with the water as a poor conductor. It can sense various levels.
