I am trying to use a pump keep s header tank full. All the AC float switches I have found are normally open and close when the water rises,the opposite of what I need.
The water level switchs I have found are cost prohibitive.

Any help would grand.

I got just the thing for you. Ebay to the rescue:

Temco makes one that you can set up either way, close on rise, or open on rise.

14 bucks and free shipping:

Thank you, it was my pleasure.

My mom was a librarian. By the time I was 12 I knew the Dewey Decimal system frontward and backward.

I knew how to manipulate interlibrary loan better than most of the librarians.


The first time I saw the internet, I immediately thought, this is just a bigger library...



Good luck with your project.


troy
