Product Details

This wide-angle normally closed contact float switch is a replacement for aerator and stock tank pumps. It cannot be used for sump pump or other water removal applications. It turns pumps off when raised, as opposed to sump pump float switches that turn pumps on when raised.
  • Turns pumps on when tanks are empty, such as aerator tanks, stock tanks, etc
  • Cannot be used with sump or sewage pumps
  • Piggyback plug design allows the pump plug to be plugged directly into this plug
  • When connecting to a pipe or pump, the float needs at least 4 in. of tether to operate properly
  • 8 ft. cord
  • Works with pumps up to 1/2 HP at 120 VAC and 1 HP at 230 VAC

Q:Can you use this on a champion evaporative cooler or swamp cooler to protect the water pump?

Answer This Question

A:  I don’t think there would be enough room to operate this float switch in the cooler.

by|Apr 21, 2022

    A:  This opens the contact. Or interrupts the electricity when the bulb floats because of rising water level. This seems like it does the opposite of what you want.

      A:  You have the wrong float switch. You need Everbilt Piggy Back Float Switch for Sump and Sewage Pumps Model# EBFSWPB . When the float is above the tether, this switch will be on. When the water level and float drop below the tether this switch will turn off.

        A:  The switch I purchased a few years ago is used for keeping a stock tank full. It is off when the tank gets full and turns the pump on when it gets low. I know they make an almost identical float switch that works the opposite way. That would be what you are looking for. A traditional sump pump switch.

          A:  If you want the pump to turn off when the float drops, you want to purchase a regular sump pump float switch, Model EBFSWPB. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Everbilt-Piggy-Back-Float-Switch-for-Sump-and-Sewage-Pumps-EBFSWPB/205618058

            A:  you would need a normally open float switch (pump down).

              A:  Thank you for the question. We are not claiming this item is for use with potable water. If you do need a potable water approved unit, please call us at 844-251-7446.

              by|Apr 6, 2020

                A:  Lead is internal... unless the float fails by means of leak in the float, stop using it immediately...would imagine cord smell will go away over time. Its best to have a filter system

                  Q:can this be used in a 12 volt system
                  by|Mar 3, 2020
                  2 Answers
                  Answer This Question

                  A:  Works with pumps up to 1/2 HP at 120 VAC and 1 HP at 230 VAC From the box, 13 FLA at 125/250V. You cannot know for sure without testing in the repurposed application. However, tables I have checked indicate that the current rating for the 12V DC inductive load is likely between 0.75 x 13 amps and 1 x 13 amps.

                  by|Mar 4, 2020

                    A:  Yes, the float can be used with 12 VAC applications, but the plug would need to be removed and hard wired.

                      Works for me!
                      Working as expected, much precipitation has resulted in high number of daily operations. No issues after two months of duty.
