Interesting...an easy fit too i think...no switch assembly to worry about, once you connect to your battery it looks after the water on auto.....

no...this is the 25s...ts a non floating switch type..ie a chip switches on the motor for 1 sec. every 2.5 minutes and and can decide to stay on if water is present...no switch assembly needed......looks like a great bit of kit.....but a lot more expensive than the switch type...but i guess if you get all that its going to end up the same price....you can read the spec on the link...it explains how it works...a floating switch would not be good for rolls...lol....

You still need a switch to turn it off when your not using it, otherwise you'll have to remember to disconnect the battery.

Floating switches are known to be troublesome. I didn't use a floating switch because when I looked at the specs I found most needed at least 25mm deep water before switching on (and staying turned on), this also means it'll turn off before empty and leave you with that much water in the kayak.
