Water Tank Float Switches

Overview

Float switches are an integral part of your septic system they tell your septic pump to turn on and off, they also let you know when there is a problem and the water level is too high. There are a couple of different float switches, and they serve various functions.We will go over that briefly below.

Control duty floats control alarms, and pumps in some cases and are not directly tied to the pump. They are wired directly to the control panel, and then the control panel has a relay that activates anything that needs to be done. The control duty floats or sensor floats have a maximum amp rage rating of five amps and are mercury activated. The basics of the operation are the float come up closing contacts and that in turn hit the relay switch which enables and takes the load of whatever was turned on.

Pump duty or pump floats are wired directly to the pump wires and are designed to take on the amp load of a pump motor running. The electrical charge that powers the pump runs through the float switch. Pump floats have an amp rating of 13-15 amps and have a lock amp rotor rating of 50-96 amps. Pump duty floats should always be changed when a new pump is installed if not you run the risk of ruining your new pump. The old pump on the system would have pulled more amps due to age as they get older they start drawing more amps and eventually that's why they fail. Because of this, they damage the float, so that is why it is necessary to change the float switch at the same time.
