- Replacement switch for sump and sewage pumps
- When connecting to a pipe or pump, the float needs 4 in. of tether to operate properly; it must be able to float into an upward position so that the ball bearing inside the switch makes contact to turn the pump on
- In order for the float to operate freely, the basin should be at least 14 in. wide and 16 in. deep; if not, the float could become stuck on the wall of the sump basin
- 8 ft. cord
- Piggy back plug
- Switch can be directly wired to 230-Volt control panels by cutting off the plug, see 'Project Ideas" in 'Info and Guides' for wiring diagram
