If you have a water pump / well pump in the United States, you have a Square D pumptrol switch that looks like this:
I own several of these and I understand very well how to set and operate them.
However, they are almost comically primitive and there are times when a normal person (like my in-laws, or my wife) need to restart a water pump and it's very frustrating to have this weirdo finger-bar mechanism that you can't describe in one sentence or less ...
Can I just start and stop my pump with buttons ?
I have searched all evening and I don't see any alternatives to the sad, lame old pumptrol - unless I want to buy oddball units off of alibaba that have metric threads, or other weirdness.
Seriously - if I work in a water treatment plant am I really restarting my pumps by "pulling the little lever just a little bit but not too much oops you pushed it too far ..." ? This is how pumps are controlled in industry ? Little finger bars ?
My wife needed to restart our pump for the water in our home once while I was away on a trip and it was very frustrating to try to talk her through this ridiculous little device on the phone.
What are my alternatives ? I need something UL Listed, standard inch threads, made for the United States and ... has actual buttons that you press.
Does this exist ?
