Using as kill switch for koi pond pump. If water level drops too low due to failure of waterfall tubing connections, pump will turn off before pond runs dry, thus protecting the fish. Tested switch and preliminary indications show “should” function as planned.

The HD listing says the switch is rated for 1/2 - 1 HP. The UL cord tag says 1/2 HP max. . I returned it to nearest store. I needed it for a 3/4 HP sump pump. Might have worked, might have burned up!!

You are correct. I am sorry for the inconvenience and I will correct the listing. Just to offer an explanation as to why this occurred, I checked the Little Giant specification sheet. It does indicate that this float switch will work on pumps from a 1/2" HP -1 HP, but if you look at the specifics you see that it depends on the voltage. The unit is rated to 1/2 HP at 120 Volts and is rated up to 1 HP at 240 Volts. This explains the error but in my opinion does not pass the logic test as you would never run 240 Volts through that style of plug. So I am left thinking, although I may be proven wrong that there is a flaw in there publication. I have a call into them to point this out. We appreciate your feed back because it helps us improve the experience for others going forward. Again I am sorry for the inconvenience.
