All You Need To Know About The Pump Float Switches

Types Of Pump Float Switches:
1. Mercury Switch: This type of sump pump float uses a mercury switch inside hinge float. They are more reliable and durable.
2. Microswitch: This type of sump pump float uses a microswitch when the rod is raised due to rising water level. They cost inexpensive compared to other alternatives.
The pump switches are also used to save the equipment of damage due to water.
Sump Pump is a particular type of pump designed to remove the collected water in a sump basin which is generally found in the storage of a building. The basement gets accumulated with water due to heavy rain provided the level of storage room is below water level.
Regular accumulation of water can pose damage to the foundation of the building due to extended damp conditions. You should deploy a sump pump to remove this water from the basement regularly to protect the foundation of the building and let the water to a nearby municipal storm drain or a dry well.
