In response to Re: stuck float switch on sewage ejector pump
: My basement sewage ejector pump has a sticky float switch. The switch does not close reliably and sometimes will stick unless the exit pipe is jiggled. Is there any way this can be repaired without replacing the entire unit?

: Thanks for your help.

I presume that your discharge pipe is 1-1/2" or 2" in inside diameter. I also presume that your "float Switch" is a mercury switch that is fastened to the vertical pipe and must swing upwards in an arc, as the liquid level rises in the pump reservoir. This type switch frequently gets hung on something, as it requires so much room to operate. S & J Electro makes a "vertical float" switch that requires very little room, as it slides up and down and has a bracket that attaches to the discharge pipe with a Stainless steel hose clamp. Your pump power cord will plug into this switch's "piggy-back" receptical. Hope this helps.
Best regards,
