Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Easy to install, but has a short life. Disappointed with Flotec products. Super easy to install, but they seem to fail quickly. We had a dry spring and summer here, so the sump did not have to work very hard, yet I have to replace it again after 10 months (found my receipt). At $50 a pop, it should be better quality. If I could afford another sump pump, I wouldn't purchase another Flotec product. Since it's not in the budget, off to drop another Ulysses S. Grant. October 11, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Float switch for lower sump water level I got this switch in dec 2010 and installed it on a pump I have for removing water from under the house. That pump actually came with a float switch, but it had the type with a float on the end of a power cord and it would not come on until the switch was "upsidedown" floating more than a few inches above the whole pump. To keep the water level more minimal I wanted the pump to come on with the water at ~3/4 the height of the pump and turn off just before the pump would lose the prime where this switch did the job. Over the winter months with some heavy rains at times I checked it and it was doing just what I wanted keeping minimal water under the house. Some might say “you should have just dug deeper”, but the basin I got had the top at ground level and this seemed a lot easier than getting a deeper sump, digging out more, etc. At first glance I thought the float was fixed on the rod & this switch would come on & off with just an inch of water height difference, but it has a 6-7 inch range. The way the switch works is the float actually slides up & down the plastic rod freely and as it comes to the top it activates the switch. Then the switch stays on (make the pump move water out) until the float lowers to where you have a rubber washer and the weight of the float pulls the rod down opening the switch. The rubber washer gives you a low end adjustment and I actually wanted it to come on a little bit before it reached the top, so put some electrical tape on the rod to make the float hit that and activate the switch sooner. The upper end of the rod has a small magnet that activates the internal contacts, so the switch is totally sealed up incase it becomes totally submerged. So my conclusion is if you want a switch to activate at levels above the pump height, get one with a float on the end of a cord. If you want to keep the water level below the top of the pump, get this style. July 16, 2011
