JUST A NOTE ABOUT SWITCHES FOR BILGE PUMPS.

THIS COMPANY HAS BEEN INVOLVED WITH EVERY SWITCH SOLD IN THE MARINE DIVISION AND INSTALLED ALL OF THEM IN BOATS.  THE SERVICE OF THESE SWITCHES OVER THIRTY YEARS DISPLAYED THE OBVIOUS PROBLEMS IN EACH BRAND WE SOLD, WE LEARNED WHICH PRODUCT WAS A GOOD PRODUCT.

THERE ARE ABOUT SEVEN PROBLEMS WHICH KILL MOST OF THE SWITCHES

1) THE PURCHASE OF COMBO PUMP /  SWITCH IS BAD BECAUSE IF EITHER FAILS YOU MUST REPLACE BOTH.

2) THE FLOAT GETS DAMAGED AND FILLS WITH WATER AFTER WHICH IT DOES NOT WORK.

3)THE FLOAT GETS JUST STUCK AND STOPS WORKING.

4) THE WIRES INTO THE FLOAT EITHER BREAK OR BIND THE FLOAT AND AGAIN STOPS WORKING.

5) SOME FLOATS HAVE A METAL ROLLING PIN WHICH ROLLS ONTO A CONTACT AREA, THE PART GETTING STUCK IS A PROBLEM.

6) THE ABILITY OF TESTING YOUR FLOAT SWITCH IS GOOD SO YOU CAN KNOW IF IT WILL WORK WHEN NECESSARY.

7) TRASH LIKE LEAFS GET IN THE ACTIVE PARTS AND KEEP THE PUMP ON OR OFF.

THE BILGE SWITCH WE SELL, SOLVES ALL PROBLEMS.

THE FLOAT IS FILLED WITH FOAM SO IT WILL NOT FILL UP.

THE SWITCH IS A MERCURY CONTACT WHICH LASTS A LONG TIME.

THE WIRES ARE PASSED THROUGH THE PIVOT AND THE PIVOT IS LOOSE TO BE SURE THE PIVOT STAYS FREE. AND BY TWISTING THE WIRES WHERE THEY EXIT FROM THE PIVOT THE SWITCH MAKES CONTACT TO TEST THE PUMP AND ITSELF..

THE SWITCH IS ENCLOSED IN A PROTECTIVE CASE TO KEEP TRASH AWAY FROM THE FLOAT.

THE ONLY WAY TO FAIL THE PART IS TO MOUNT THE SWITCH ON A STEEP AREA OF THE HULL WHERE THE FLOAT HITS THE TOP OF THE ENCLOSURE BEFORE THE FLOAT IS HIGH ENOUGH TO TRIP THE SWITCH.

WE FULLY RECOMMEND AFTER MANY YEARS OF SALES AND WE SELL IT AT A REASONABLE PRICE.  OVER MANY YEARS THE ONLY FAILURE WAS A MOUNTING PROBLEM..
