Diaphragm Pressure Switch Used in Sump Pumps
Sump pumps play a pivotal role in keeping buildings dry. To avoid flooding, it’s crucial that a sump pump turns on at the correct time in order to flush water out. This action must be triggered by a switch. Presair fills this need.
Presair utilizes diaphragm switches to monitor rising water levels and prompt a sump pump to action. These switches sense pressure against the diaphragm to accurately read how much water is present in a system. As the water level rises in a sump basin, the pressure pushing against the diaphragm builds within the switch. Therefore, the switch is preset to actuate at a specific water level. When the specified water level is reached, it will generate a precise pressure in the basin. The diaphragm is calibrated to complete a circuit at that exact moment and initiate the pump.
Presair switches are small and accurate. This makes them the perfect fit for a congested sump basin. Other switching options can be cumbersome and difficult to maneuver. But Presair’s durable, precise, miniature-sized pressure switches help keep basements dry and people happy.
