  • MONITOR LIQUID LEVEL IN DRUMS when feeding from chemical drums and containers. Quick and easy to install - then forget about drum level forever. Simply connect your liquid suction line and drop it in a drum. You're ready to go!
  • The Mounting Cap on the Drum Alarm makes it easy to switch to a new drum since you don't have to disconnect tubing while you unscrew a cap - it just drops over the bung. The cap keeps debris out of the drum, and suppresses vapors even liquid ammonium hydroxide is not a problem.
  • Attached Suction Pipe can't be separated from the float switch, so the level alarm is always on duty.
  • Removable Filter Screenguards your pumps from debris or crystals. Gizmo Removable Screen
  • Float switch is protected inside a rigid pipe so it can get knocked around without worry.
  • Secure compression tubing connection eliminates air leakage in your feed lines.
  • The Built-in Suction Pipe depth is perfectly sized to reach the bottom of the drum to pump out all of the liquid. Because it is a rigid pipe, it always draws from the bottom and your pump will never be drawing air instead of liquid. Gizmo Suction pipe inside view
