Do you need your submersible pump to turn off and on automatically? Then you need a submersible pump float switch. When your water tank is full, the float switch rises and cuts off the electrical signal, shutting off the pump. As the water level falls, the float switch reconnects with the circuit, turning the pump back on to re-fill your tank.

This listing is for the 5m float switch. For the 2m automatic float switch click here. 

A float switch prevents your tank from overflowing. Alternatively, it can be set up to turn on the pump to prevent the tank from running dry. The switch can be set to turn on or off when full. It's your choice – and you select the trigger water level.

Use a float switch to automatically fill a tank, pool or garden pond when evaporation or use reduces the water level. All materials are non-toxic and can be used with drinking water.

Water Pumps Now stocks a range of float switch controllers from 2m to 30m sizes.
