    thats what i use and it is nice that you dont wait until the pan is full to the top to shut off. less weight in the pand and less water to suck out.

    more than a 2 wire. it is an easy install. i have not had it lie once. only issue is it will pick up a little drop of water. have now started to make a little stand for it to stand on. and best way to dry out is a paper towel on the bottom

    It will also detect roof leaks, went on a no-cooling call...Guess what the switch was tripped due to a roof leak above the unit......

    Looks like a DIY question to me.
    I fully support the military and the War on Terrorism.


    If you don't know, then don't do. If you don't know and still do, then be prepared to pay someone else a lot to undo what you did and then do it right.

    If you do know, then do. But do it right. Otherwise, you may not be doing it long.

    One that is installed properly, to shut down the unit in the event that you have a problem.
