Low level cut out protection / Water level detection probes / Run dry protection

A borehole or private water system is made up of many different components and controls. Depending upon the requirements and application there may be different options or sizes available. There are two basic ways to protect a pump from overheating and burning out due to a drop in water level or lack of water:

Water level detection probes: Either single or double, specially designed and manufactured for FWT for use in boreholes. Ideal for use as part of a 'low water level' cut-out system for borehole pumps. Durable, our probes are manufactured from stainless steel with PVC housing (21mm diameter x 585mm length) FWT recommend level detection probes to be installed on every fixed speed pumping system. Water level detection probes can also be used in tank systems.

Flow detection: Used either as part of the control unit or a separate flow detection system. Basically when the water flow stops a special electronic pressure switch prevents the pump from operating.
