Strange Issue with Water Detector Sensor 00276WD

I want to report a strange issue with my Temp/Humidity/Water Detector Sensor.

I have installed the unit a week ago in a crawlspace that will occasionally get standing water in it.  I placed the temp/humidity sensor with the water detector add on it in the crawlspace and placed the water detector into the standing water.  I run a dehumidifier to remove the water from the crawlspace.  The temp and humidity will cycle with the running of the dehumidifier.

This morning the water detector started switching from water detected to water not detected.  I am assuming this means the water is being removed.  The switching of the water state went on for over 4 hours.  It then went back to water detected.

The issue is once the water detected state started going on and off, both the temp and humidity readings from this sensor stopped changing value on My Acurite.  They were both still reported but temp was at  57.9 and the humidity was at 59% and never changed at all in over a 4 hour period of time.

I have a 5in1 and a tower sensor connected to the same Access that the temp/humidity/water detector sensor is connect to and those two sensors do show all of their values changing during this period of time.

Unfortunately I am not at this location to see what is actually going on with the water.  The next time I am at this location I will move the tower sensor to the crawlspace to get a second set of readings.
