It is simple floating switch, I don t remember the name, but I guess any simple floating switch will do the job!

Pideas,

Following is an image of the Johnson BP Switch and SS mounting plate supplied by Inspiration Marine Group (our warranty dealer in UK)  as a replacement for the Whale switch which apparently has a history of failure. Just unscrew the Whale switch and the SS plate with the Johnson switch attached can be screwed onto the same place as the Whale switch was. The mounting plate is about 5.7 inches wide and 3.1 inches long. The mounting hole centers is about 3.15 inches and the holes are .22 inch in diameter. In case you can't read the part number it is AS 888 part #26014 (US).

Hi Wayne,

My whale switch has failed ( BE 9003)  and before I replace it with the same switch, I would like to see if I can get the setup that you described.   Are you still using it?  The post was writting a couple years ago now. 

I'm also in the Caribbean and not sure if I can find a supplier for it....

Rob, 
We are still using the same switches as neither have failed. Occasionally we have the owners sump pump stick on but I just lift the floor hatch and give the sump box a slap and it stops. The owners sump pump gets a lot of use because we are on the boat 24/7/365. Every few months I remove the sump lid and clean the switch which helps.

My switch failed and replaced it with an identical one from an Italian brand I forgot that has hysteresis embedded in the switch. No problems to the pump that keeps working OK...

Just finished installing the new float switch.   The local fab shop here in St Maarten cut a couple pieces of stainless steel to make the bracket out of.  The whole job only took about an hour and works nicely!!

Thank you to everyone for putting this information online!!   Itís a great resource!

Rob,     nice pics.    I'm wondering what drove you to change the grey water pump switch?    I've replaced the pump twice (fore and aft) but the switch has only gone once.   It was a $29.00 spare
and pretty easy to replace.

Wayne,  We are living in a condo here on SXM.  Drop me a line when you get here.  Would love to meet you!!

We hope to get to other islands for short mini cruises...perhaps 1 or 2 weeks at a time.  Mainly the Virgin Islands when friends and family come to visit...but always returning to our home base here in SXM.
