"Christmas TreeGuard" Sounds Alarm When Tree Needs Water

Your Christmas tree will never run out of water if you use this new TreeGuard, which sets off a low-level audio signal whenever the water level falls below 2 in.
  About the size of a lipstick tube, the battery-powered unit is designed to float upright in the water reservoir of your Christmas tree stand.
  "It makes a continuous soft buzzing sound," says manufacturer Mike Duffy. "You can hear the alarm from an adjacent room. However, unless your bedroom is right next to the tree it isn't loud enough to wake you up in the middle of the night. The Christmas Tree Farmers Association of New York is promoting the unit as an effective tool to prevent fresh cut trees from drying out."
  The Christmas TreeGuard sells for $6.99 plus S&H.
