A simple float switch designed to monitor the water level in a sump pump well. Connect to a warning device or alarm system and you have a low cost sump pump alarm. Easily configured as a normally open or normally closed switch. Can be connected to relays and other devices to drive high current loads. Hose clamp allows easy level adjustment.
Switch is U.L. listed.
