The PCD-1000 Submersible Pump is equipped with an automatic reset thermal protector to help prevent premature failure caused by overheating. If the internal motor temperature rises to unsafe levels, the switch will protect the motor by causing it to stop. When the motor has sufficiently cooled, the switch will reset automatically and restart the motor, allowing you to resume pumping.
The included external float switch allows for optional automatic operation of the PCD-1000 pump. It is easily installed by plugging directly into an outlet and connecting the pump cord to the opposite end of the switch. The pump is then automatically activated when the surrounding water raises the float switch to a 45° angle from the handle. Once the water level and float switch return to its original position, the pump is automatically turned off.
