You forget I have 30 years of water well experience: it's the same switch (and brand) I've put in a hundred pump houses. Same adjustments, etc.

I guess it's like calling an adjustable wrench a Crescent wrench or a copy machine a Xerox machine. My trusty McMaster Carr catalog does show a different switch for water and air. They both indicate a neoprene diaphram, I suspect some internal components are more corrosion resistant. I agree everyone I have ever seen, water or air looked the same.

Cheers, Dan

I never had trouble with mine, but when I switched over to a different system, it all came out. It's good for Hans (or any other Classic owners) to know they can still get a replacement unit. My problem,and why I spent $$$ was I could never get it to self-adjust, no matter how much it was fooled with. I believe I had a Monday mechanic install it.
