STAK Enterprises has developed the
of electronic pump switches that replace unreliable
mechanical float switches in all types
of applications, including sump pits and sewage pits, and for
all brands of pumps. But, these controllers are more than
just pump switches. They all have
alarms, including a high water alarm, that will
alert you if the water is coming in faster than the pump can pump
it out, or if the discharge pipe is blocked, preventing the water
from discharging. All the HydroCheck switches
sensors, which have no moving parts, so they don't have
all the problems associated with mechanical float switches. And,
pump switches are easy to install,
and don't require any special tools, changes to your plumbing,
So, whether it is
for replacing a failed float switch or for getting ahead
of the game and replacing the float before it fails, STAK has the
right pump switch for you! Use the selection
guide below to
help figure out which switch is best for you.

of Electronic Pump Switches
Sump Pump Switch -
HydroCheck HC8000 pump
switch is designed to work in typical sump pits that collect
water from the drain tiles around your home's foundation. It
is very simple to install and is fully automatic so it doesn't
require any complicated setup. Get
Model HC7000 Utility Pump
HydroCheck HC7000 pump
switch is specifically designed to work with utility pumps
standing water from your basement
floor, crawl space, or any flat surface where water tends to
collect. Utility pumps, like Flotec's® Tempest® pump,
can pump water down to as little as 3/16" but they don't
normally come with a float switch which automatically
turns the pump on and off. And standard mechanical float switches
need 6: to 12" to operate. But our HydroCheck HC7000
Switch can operate in as little as 1/2" of water, and
automatically turns the pump on when it detects water, and
turns the pump
off when all the water has been pumped out. It also works
great with Laundry
Tub Pumps. Get
HC6000 Hi-Lo Pump Switch -
HydroCheck HC6000 pump switch
is designed for those applications where you need to precisely
control the levels where the pump
turns on and off. The HC6000 Hi-Lo Pump Switch has two sensors
that are used
set these levels based on your application. This switch is
particularly useful where the water table is high and it doesn't
make sense to try and empty the pit every cycle. Or, the pit
is large and it takes longer than 90 seconds to empty it. It is
also a good replacement for the Simer® SSS-11 swtich. Get
Model HC5000 Sewage Pump Switch -
HydroCheck HC5000 pumpswitch
is designed to work in sewage pits that collect water from laundry
tubs, toilets, water softeners, etc. It has a single
sensor that is specially designed not to get fouled or locked-up
by floating waste. Get
