I'm looking for a miniature float switch similar to the ones used on the Kamoer dosing containers. It will be installed into the protein skimmer cup to detect an overflow situation when my skimmer decides to wet skimmer. My Apex will be used to monitor the float switch to turn off the skimmer and send me a message when it happens. This will keep the skim mate in the cup instead of having it flow back in the tank.

Any one know where I can purchase a miniature version of the float switch?

thank in advance!

eBay ones are standard size which will be too big to fit into my skimmer.

thank you!

The float you're looking for is called a vertical mount float switch. Do a Google search for "vertical mount plastic float switch", and you'll get lots of options.
