How can I start/stop a waterpump (230V 500Watt) using a magnetic floating switch which can switch 230V max 1A 15W? Answered
I have a cleanwater pump in my cellar 230V / 500W to keep the floor almost completely dry.
I have a liquid level sensor that can switch max 250 volt, max switching current 1A, and maximum switching power 15 Watts.
I don't know enough about electronics to know how to fix this problem. But I do know that the switch won't work when I connect it directly to the pump...
So how can I get this working (low cost)?
