You probably hit the spot A64.
And to be honest , really , before starting this topic , it had crossed my mind to experiment
with different floaters on water and diesel
to see if a solution could be found in that area.
Hopcar , the thing is also that I have my bilgepump installed in combi with a floaterswitch in the cavity of the bilge
that controls the pump. You all know the system of course.
this field effect switch pump would force me to reorganize the bilge
What I would like to do is run an extra switch that can override the floaterswitch in case diesel/oil is in the cavity , or bilge for that matter.
I'll get to the boat in a few weeks time and will change the dieselfilter and experiment
with some water. Never done that before , so it would be a reassurance to know the waterdetection works as fuel-injectionpump-guard.
I will also look into the density aspect , and try to find the correct floater.
Will let you know, but as always , suggestions a more than welcome.
