A vendor needs to let me know when they have this in stock... Thank you :)

From another thread... I use this to detect water on the floor of my sump room, and then shut off pumps, as well as set off alarms and send emails.

Not sure if you have an Apex, but if you do, you can use it to have your skimmer come on 5 min after your return pump following a power outage. Also similar to your float switch relay, you can use the Apex with a water sensor to shut down your skimmer when it overflows. I use this DIY sensor with my Apex (which can recognize an off/on switch event) to shut off pumps. It could be taped to the outside of your skimmer cup. Or use your float switch inside with the Apex (no relay needed). Just some alternatives...

The Neptune controllers have been able to do this for quite a while with the Breakout Box and some $12 water sensors (I bought mine on ebay, search GRI water sensor). I guess this new product is a little bit more plug and play but even I was able to figure out how to do it the old fashion way with my old ACIII and current Apex.

Yes true I was going to use the breakout box. I just like the plug and play and will use the breakout box for float switches
