Can this switch be used to control a motor with 24VDC power, or is it only usable with AC power?

Answers

This switch should work with any voltage within its stated range, either AC or DC. The mechanism is controlled by the water pressure applied and opens or closes the circuit accordingly.

Can this switch be wired between a 12 volt battery and a 12 volt pump?

The pressure switch works well,Just make sure the rubber is seal is secure,you will be ok. Here in Florida those little lizards are bad about getting in between the points and causing them not to connect.

There is no water coming up into the house is it the water pressure switch that not working

It could be, but could also be: - No power (circuit breaker thrown, etc.) - Damaged wire or connection between pressure switch and pump - Pump failure With circuit tester/multimeter, check power at supply connection of switch. If no power, check circuit breaker or call electrician. If there is power, check pressure. If pressure is 40 psi or above, attach hose to pressure tank drain and open valve. If pressure drops and then pump starts as usual, then there is some plumbing issue between pressure tank and house. If pressure is below 40 psi, check power at pump connection of switch. If power to the pump is good, then there is a wire/connection issue between the switch and the pump or the pump itself is bad. If no power to the pump, then replace switch.

Can't get water up into the house is it the pressure switch

Before I would get a new pressure switch, you might want to take a air pump like a tire pump and add a little air into the tank and see if that will bring up your pressure.You can take a tire gauge and check the pressure. I would not go over 60 on the pressure gauge.

I have a fluctuation in the water coming into the house and it cuts it takes a while then comes back on what could it be

I don’t fully understand you question, so I would recommend calling us to assist at 844-251-7446. One thing to check: turn off the power to the pump, drain the tank, and check the air pressure in the tank. It should be set to 38 PSI of air for a 40/60 switch. If your tank is losing air, it could cause the inconsistencies and the tank may need to be replaced.

If I have a 40-60 pressure tank does that mean that my pressure switch should be 40 60 also

Any thing between 40 and 60 will work ok,I have mine set about 45.because I have a 40 gal tank,It really depends what size tank you have.The larger tank you might want it a litter higher, but do not go over 60.

My new pump switch is falling apart due to inferior design. Are there any made without plastic to hold points together?

price was a little high but overall it was easy to find in the home depot store. The switch installed easy and appears to be good quality and little heavier duty then the original one that came with my pump. this switch also allows for a higher pressure setting of 60 psi mine was preset at about 58psi and that extra pressure is very nice . yes I would buy this switch again , yes I woudl recommend this product to someone else.
