Furthermore, how do you wire a submersible pump with a float switch? The neutral wire from the panel will connect directly to the neutral wire from the pump. The ground wire from the panel will connect directly to the ground wire from the pump. Now you are left with the hot wire from the panel and the hot wire from the pump. The float switch has two legs.

Also question is, how is a float switch connected?

A float switch is a small device enclosed in a waterproof case used to turn a pump on and off relative to the water level in the tank. It can be attached to a submersible pump or a pump which sits outside the tank and it protects the pump from running if the water is low.

How does a float switch work on a submersible pump?

A float switch is a mechanism used to detect the level of water around a submersible pump, allowing the pump to operate automatically – when the water reaches a certain pre-set depth the float switch will trigger the pump to switch on and start pumping.
