Here’s the bad news:
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency tells us that the single largest use of
elemental mercury is in relays in power plants.
And here’s some even worse news:
Many, if not most, mercury-containing level switches have unreliable designs.
(They stick and are vibration sensitive) That’s right...these switches are
full of poison and are unreliable. Not a good thing.
The good news:
Jerguson has a mercury-free level switch that completely avoids the spring failure
that leads to stuck switches. (No more need to “rap” a switch to get a reading,
and no more bad readings due to vibration!)
Retrofitting your old switch with a Jerguson doesn’t require any new piping...
and in most cases you won’t have to remove the old float housing. Our customers tell
us the new switches quickly pay for themselves because they are maintenance-free...
eliminating the cost of frequent spring replacement.
