Pump Controllers - Electric
Pump Controllers for Sumps
This controller in conjunction with a Sump Pump Switch (or similar device) will automatically start an effluent pump when the effluent level in a sump rises to a predetermined high level and then stops the effluent pump when the effluent level falls to a predetermined low level.
Pump Controllers for Conical Sumps
This controller is generally used in conical sumps where the sump pump switch is positioned near the higher part of the conical base but the pump suction is located near the deepest part of the conical base.
The controller is fitted with an additional timer to allow the pump to continue to operate for a predetermined time period (adjustable) after the sump pump switch has reached the stop position to pump out the contents of the conical base before switching off. This will prevent sludge buildup and crusting from occurring.
Pump Controllers for Storage Ponds
This Controller will automatically start and stop the effluent pump at predetermined times using a time clock. The elapsed time is generally the time taken by the travelling irrigator to complete a run.
