Questions & Answers

What is the number of contacts on the switch?

A pair of poles or contact points are present

It would be nice if a switch could be installed to protect a pump from running dry. Should I have a switch that operates once the pump turns on when the float rises so that the contact closes when the pump goes on?

If you want to feed the starter, you should choose a switch with a normally closed contact. The float activates (contact opens) when the tank starts to fall below the minimum level, turning the pump off.

Although the titled states that it closes when a rise is made, the manufacturer's description states that it opens upon a rise. Therefore, what do you think it does?

An extension of a 3/16 inch rod extends through an opening in the trip arm that sticks out of the switch, constituting the float. A set screw is set at the high and low levels of this rod's collars. When the level of liquid in the reservoir rises, the collar of the rod pushes the trip arm upward, thereby closing the switch and starting the As soon as the pump is installed. Once the second collar on the rod drops, and the arm goes down, opening the switch and stopping the pump, it has pumped enough liquid to lower the second collar.

Then what do you do with the rod? Are you referring to something that is ?

I haven't included the rod in the picture. Specifically, the rod is attached to the lever sticking out of the front by way of the hole. Additionally, you should have two stoppers, one that goes on the rod above the lever and one on the rod below. When the water level rises too high, these will turn the pump on, and when the level decreases, the pump will turn off.
