Product Overview

The Basement Watchdog Universal Dual Float Switch and Controller is the most reliable float switch in the industry. It will activate your primary sump pump when rising water lifts either float by 1/4 in. The float switch has not one but two large floats both in a protective cage. Should one float fail to activate the pump, the second float will automatically takeover. Once the float drops to the original position, the controller will keep the pump running for an additional 10 seconds to completely drain the sump pit. The protective cage prevents debris or other wires from interfering with the floats. The Basement Watchdog Dual Float Switch and Controller is easy to install and can be adjusted to activate at any level. This universal switch can be used with most existing sump pumps.
  • Compatible with most sump pumps
  • Large floats detect 1/4 in. water level rises, automatically activating the sump pump
  • Second float provides additional protection to ensure automatic pump activation
  • Protective float switch cage helps keep debris and wires from interfering with float movement; vented, curved bottom reduces debris build-up under the float
  • Allows the sump pump to run for an additional 10 seconds to drain excess water from the sump pit
  • Includes controller and hose clamp that lets you easily install the floats at any level
  • For ground water use only

I needed to drain a basement... that had no sump... using this and a traditonal sump pump... I was able to keep the basement drained until the flooding issue was fixed. This controller worked well for this purprose.

Every 3 years, the float switch needs to be replaced. My previous float switch unit failed at 3 years, causing a 4" basement flood. This prompted the purchase of this Bull Dog unit. The unit has been in place for about 2 weeks and so far so good.

I absolutely hated this switch
I went to replace my float switch a while ago and this is the only vertical switch in stock at the store. I wanted the ever built one but the website made an error and there were none in stock so I got this. It has a timer that makes it run for 10 seconds. Except in my experience it was more like 8 seconds. My sump takes on a lot of water sometimes, so this means it wouldn't full empty before shutting off. Which means it filled up again quickly, and ran constantly. It ran far more often than other styles of float switch, which is bad for the pump. Finally a year and a half later it kept getting stuck on, regardless of what I did to clean it - so it is now replaced. I am online looking for a new one to keep as a spare, but felt compelled to leave a review for the one I just got done using since I hated it so much. 1 star. Don't buy.
