Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Use this ‘piggy-back’ designed tethered float switch to quickly replace your failed tethered switch on your submersible sump pump. You can also replace a vertical switch if your sump diameter is at least 14 In. to provide clearance for operation. This switch is interchangeable with most brands of sump pumps.

    Simple design but works just as it should. Very easy to install. The cord could do with being longer but apart from that this product does the job well. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews

    I use this item in the skimmer for my koi pond to protect my above water pumps. It lets me know when it’s time to clean the filter pad and debris net. Does what it’s supposed to do. The pump runs 24/7 and the previous one I had lasted eight years. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews

    5.0 out of 5 stars Converted my utility pump to an automatic sump pump, November 22, 2009

    I bought this item sight unseen, to convert my 1/6 HP Flotec utility pump into an automatic sump pump. Before buying this, I had three major concerns:

    1) Since my pump turns on and off only by plugging it in, would the float switch even work with it?
    2) Would the float switch cycle on and off too frequently as the water level fluctuated?
    3) How and where would I attach the float switch?

    Upon receiving the item, all my concerns were satisfied.

    1) The “piggyback plug” works as expected. You leave the pump plugged in to it all the time.
    2) Once the switch cycles on, the water level has to drop about 5-6 inches before it cycles off.
    3) The float switch comes with two mounting options. One of the options was a small metal bracket and a screw that exactly fit a mounting post on the top of my utility pump.

    You do need a good size sump well for this tethered float switch to work. They recommend 14″ diameter but I think you could make it work with a 12″ well by placing the pump against one side of the well.
