    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Float Switch... This is a great float switch that is activated by a steel ball. No wondering if the switch is connected because you can hear the ball roll to the bottom. The directions are kind of confusing. Just put the float on the inbound positive wire to your bilge pump. The only issue is the "micro" size. I have a 16ft boat with about a 1ft square bilge. It has the pump, the switch and a live well pump all in the same location. I was hoping for something a little smaller but it works. The boat sat in the water for seven days and this little switch came on like a champ! It rained about every day at some point. I only found about 1" of water in the bilge. My setup: 16ft Sundance Skiff, 500 Rule Bilge with the Johnson Float.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works good After ordering, it took just a short time to get and was very easy to install. Wish there was a way to adjust the float.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great. The instructions do not show how to wire it without using a control panel. Do not waste your money by buying a control panel. Use your common sense.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple Design, Micro Switch/Roller Ball Bought this switch as a identical replacement. The old one had been in the boat for who knows how long. Switch started to stick internally. I opened it up and found the roller ball had rusted which indicates at some time it leaked. Opening the case up was difficult, well sealed, and suspect the leak was where the leads enter the case. Suggest possibly adding a silicon sealant around the leads to extend the life of the switch. But for the price this may be over kill....

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from a great backup Although the regular bilge does do its job, you have to manually turn it on. The automatic switch does that job for you. Always a great backup to have on any boat.I installed mine on a stainless bracket that I bent to shape to mount on my boat for easy removal.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mayfair Bilge Pump Switch The Mayfair is a properly engineered float switch. The Rule, while not properly engineered is "properly marketed" I been through numerous Rule switches. The current Mayfair switch in my engine room is over 10 years old and cycles at least a few times a week. The mercury contacts in the Rule seem to arc and burn up especially if the water very slowly rises. The Mayfair snaps either on or off using proven industrial micro switches. The lead entry into the switch is an excellent seal, the only drawback being is to make sure that there is some slack in the wire but that is needed for most other brand switches anyway.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised! Switch was easy to install and works well. Getting wiring correct took reading directions twice but works well now.

    IS THIS THE SAME S THE FLOAT SWITCH THAT GOES IN THE GAS TANK

    Asked by: TJ
    No that is a totally different switch. This is used to turn on a water pump to pump out the water in the bilge. The float switch that you are refering to tell the gauge on your dash how much fuel is in the tank. 74917
