Mechanical Float Valve Kit (for Pump Shutoff with Pressure System)

Mechanical Float Valve Kit (for Pump Shutoff with Pressure System)

RPS Solar Pumps

Regular price $54.50 Sale

As an alternative to running sensor wire from the RPS Controller to your water tank, some customers opt for using a mechanical float switch. This will attach to the top of you tank. To it you'll connect your plumbing line (either 1" or 3/4") to the thread or the barb (included) and when the float is activated by the ball floating, the valve will close, the pressure will spike, and the Reverse Action Pressure Switch attached to the RPS controller will turn off the pump.

Requires
Reverse Action Pressure Switch (with 2 wires running from it to the RPS Controller)
Check Valve (somewhere inline between Pump and Mechanical Float - recommended on pump to prevent water hammer effect) 

Included
Float Valve in selected size
6" Ball Float with 1/4" Thread
12" threaded rod to attach valve to ball
Barb to male thread adapter (for use with poly pipe)
