Ultralife This float switch will operate for high water or low water applications. This can be achieved by simply removing the retaining ring and turning the barrel float upside down. This switch can handle multiple pumps with a combined amperage draw of up to 10 amps. Each switch comes with a 6ft grounded cord and suction cup mounting for the switch. This float switch can save you from burning out that expensive pump or can be used for water top off.

Q
Can this switch be used to turn on a pump in high water situations?
I would like to have a fail safe in my sump, to pump water to a spare holding tank, even though I've followed all of the flood precautions I can possibly imagine and learned about. I would like the high water switch to actually turn on a secondary pump in my sump, sending water to a spare holding tank.

Great Question. Yes, you can easily flip the float to change it to a high level application and use it in the manner you described.

REVIEW
Bought one and was impressed with it that I bought another. I used this in conjunction with a TOM's Aqualifter on a timer and it hasn't failed me yet in the past 4 years.

REVIEW
Im using this to shut the pump off if the u tube fails. Tested and works great. I had to make a different type of tank mount. to allow the float to be higher in the tank. If you use it to fill your tank you'll be fine otherwise if you use it to shut off be prepaired to fabricate.

REVIEW
Luckily I was in the room when my overflow box pump failed and the tank started to overflow. That night I ordered the Ultralife Float Switch. It could not have been easier to install, works flawlessly, worth every penny!!! True peace of mind.
