PRECAUTIONS
Keep a proper distance between the installation There should be a proper distance between the
position and the water pump inlet to prevent the installation position and water inlet to prevent
float switch from being sucked in towards the pump. any direct water impact. If it can't be avoided,
please install a pipe-shield or plate that lowers
