20′ Suspended Avocado Float Switch (Mechanical, 3-Wire SPDT, NO/NC)


SKU: 48243 Category:


These popular avocado-style float switches are now available with a mercury-free mechanical switch! The avocado shape and smooth, debris-shedding surface ensure reliable operation even in the worst lift station conditions.

A narrow 10° angle of operation (equal to about 1″ below horizontal and 1″ above) provides precise level control. The floats have a reliable microswitch protected within an interior housing and surrounded by a solid foam core, all encased in a polypropylene shell for additional impact resistance.

Includes: a plated cast-iron adjustable weight.

Notes: Use for signal/control duty only, not for direct pump operation. These items may be restricted from sale in certain states. Please check with your local governing body to ensure compliance with all laws and regulations.
