Cistern Water Level Controls are used to control turning on a water supply pump to keep the cistern full of water. This Cistern Pump control panel is designed to control a water supply pump which has a 7 amp to 15 amp motor rating. The Cistern Control can control a submersible water well pump to eliminate the need for a pressure tank to turn on and turn off the submersible pump. Two floats that you will tether to the pipe inside the cistern, control the on and off points of operation. We recommend adding a low water alarm system to alert you when there is a problem with water level, caused by a failure of the supply pump to keep the cistern full.

CISTERN PUMP CONTROL PANEL      $ 306.00

Our cistern control panel is for signaling a water supply pump to turn on and fill a cistern, and to turn off when the cistern is full. The pump control panel uses 2 float switches to control the supply pump in the well. The control panel has a green pump run light indicator, a HOA switch for manual pump control and a magnetic contactor that controls the pump by switching electric power lines on and off.

The cistern pump control is in a NEMA 4 outdoor enclosure, and has a magnetic contactor for control of pumps with loads of 7 to 15 amps. This control does not include an alarm, so you may wish to add an outdoor low water alarm #1005835 to alert you to any problem with the supply pump.

The float controls which you tether to a pipe in the cistern, to allow them to swing up and down to a controlled level, are both normally closed float switches. When the water level drops down to where you wish to turn on the supply pump, both floats will be hanging down, and their contacts will be closed, signaling to the supply pump to turn on and fill the cistern. When the water level in the cistern rises to where both floats are up, the contacts will open, turning off the power to the water supply pump.
