Possible float switch substitute

Post by brokencase »

I saw this and thought it might be a good substitute for Scorpio overflow and washer tank float sensors.
One would only have to work out the rubber seal portion, possibly 3d print something in polyurethane. Or it may be making a simple spacer.

In the printed catalog they indicate the part is made of polypropylene, which would work fine in the applications.

It comes with the reed switch like the Scorpio, but also has an extra thermistor if you wanted to measure temp in the overflow tank.
