What Is Float Switches The float switch is basically used to detect the level of liquid within a container. When a designated minimum or maximum level is reached, the float switch activates and triggers the desired response, such as turning a pump on or off or triggering an alarm. Float switches have uses in industry but also in the home. An environmentally friendly home may use a rainwater toilet and the chances are that it will be controlled by one of these devices. The cistern of the toilet will need to be filled from the main rainwater reservoir. When the cistern is not full enough, the switch can be set to activate a pump and replenish the water supply, switching off again when the cistern is full, thus preventing water overflowing and ruining the bathroom.
