The Sump Pump Float Switch

PHCC Pro Series, the company that revolutionized the sump pump float switch has done it again, with the introduction of the new Ultimate Sensor Switch and the USC3 Ultimate Controller System. 

The PHCC Dual Float independent vertical float switch manufactured by Glentronics has not one, but two, floats mounted within a protective cage. The cage protects against blockage and the two floats provide back up against failure.  Should one float fail to operate, the second float is available and ready to activate the pump. The protective cage prevents debris or other wires from interfering with movement of the floats. The result – the most reliable float switch in the industry!

This particular switch is also equipped with a control box and an alarm. Being independent from the pump, you are now able to adjust the float level without moving the pump.

USC3 – Ultimate Controller and Ultimate Sensor

USC3 – Ultimate Sensor

This new solid-state sensor has no moving parts to wear out or break. It’s simply a monitoring sensor rod. When the water level touches the rod, the sensor detects it and activates the pump. Features include:

  • Imbedded computer monitors any material buildup on sensor rod and keeps on working.
  • Sensor ball can be raised or lowered to adjust activation level
  • Slow Fill Recognition senses the water level regardless of how fast or slow the sump pit is filling up
  • Designed for use in sump and sewage pits
  • Easy Installation – with a removable connector, the sensor wire can be easily fed through small sump pit cover holes, then reconnected directly to the controller
  • 3.5″ long, 3-16 grade stainless steel sensor rod will not corrode
  • Sensor sends “Heartbeat” signal to controller, if the sensor is unplugged or not operating an alarm will activate
  • Mounts to discharge pipe with included stainless steel hose clamp



USC3 – Ultimate Controller

This controller monitors pump and power conditions and sounds an alarm when problems are detected. The Ultimate Controller includes the Ultimate Sensor.

“I just had a sump pump and drain system installed in my basement due to flooding. Liam and Joey showed up in the freezing cold and worked all day to get my sump installed to stop the water. When they came back to put in the perimeter drain they were very courteous, knowledgeable and professional . They answered all my questions and did an amazing job. Thanks Liam and Joey!!”
