      When the float switch is in the down position the switch is considered open. When in the up position is switch is closed and will turn the pump on.

  • Q:

    Is the float switch on or off when the float is up? I want it for my water supply tank and want it to shut off my pump when the water level is high in the tank.

      When the float is up the switch is closed. This would turn on the pump.
