Details description

Product Details

A backup system is vital!  No matter what size your aquaponics system is, you need a backup system!

This Float Switch Tank is a simple, reliable way to ensure your fish keep getting the fresh water and air they need.

If your system doesn’t have a header/distribution tank in which to mount a float switch, this 25 L (6.6 Gal) side tank will be a great addition.

Complete with Float Switch and plumbing for water inlet and outlet, it’s easy to install and a breeze to operate.

You can easily mount it over a fish tank or sump so the water can drain straight back into the system.

Connect a line from your main water pump.  While the pump is running, the header tank will remain full, keeping the float switch closed.  If the water flow stops for any reason – whether power outage, pump blockage or burnout – the water level in the tank will drop, opening the float switch and turning on the backup pump.
