I've posted on electric bilge pumps before, a year or two back. I installed one in my kayak. The pump was activated by a foot switch mounted on the forward bulkhead. http://www.basspro.com/Big-Foot-Trolling-Motor-Foot-Switch/product/16071/
This worked okay, but was not ideal and I'd like to replace it.
Recalling prior advice, what I should have used was a magnetic reed switch, mounted under the deck, activated by a sliding magnet, atop the deck.
Anybody know where one buys a magnetic reed switch suitable for this purpose? Oh, and I don't want to buy in lots of 50 or more.
The big box stores sell them, sort of, for alarm systems. The sort of is that they are backwards from what I want. The alarm ones activate the circuit when the magnet is removed. I want one that activates when the magnet is present.
