Default Bilge Pump Switch - Johnson Ultima

Is anyone using the Johnson Ultima bilge pump switch? This one - http://www.defender.com/product.jsp?...4242&id=344412.

I just installed one in place of my old float switch and the bilge pump keeps running. Someone told me these switches have a tendency to do that. It may be that the water in the outlet hose that doesn't get expelled is enough to keep the contact wet and prevent the switch from turning off.

Do you have a different "favorite" bilge pump switch?

Thanks.

Bumping an old thread for feedback, Not a fan of these switches personally. They work intermittently and rarely turn off after they come on.
