arc snuffer for the water pump

i saw some people stating the the water switch on the water pump wears out over time due to arcing

its easy to prevent, just make a simple arc snuffer

simply add a 0.1 uf capacitor in series with a 100 ohm resister
place this is parallel to the switch on the pump

i potted mine with epoxy to keep it safe and dry

easy to make, simple to install
