      Comments about Sealand TankWatch Holding Tank Alert System:

      It really did work for years, at least 15. It's a good design - the float should never get stuck due to dirt or growth since the shaft is very short and is not submerged at all until the tank is almost full. Presumably you would empty the tank at this point, so the switch would normally be hanging in water all the time. Mine finally failed. It started indicating FULL constantly just this year (2016). The float still worked fine, but I determined that the fault was an internal short in the float switch assembly. It is sealed, so you can't get to the internals. So I banged it on a table, flexed the plastic shaft, intoned some ancient chants, banged it some more, and now it works again. Apparently the switch assembly is not available separately from the light panel, and the current price on the unit is ridiculously high for such a simple device. When it fails again, I'll convert the hole left behind in the holding tank into an opening for a manual dip stick.

      Comments about Sealand TankWatch Holding Tank Alert System:

      This device has been in my holding tank for 7 years now, and is still working like new. It lights up when there is still room in the tank for another 5 to 7 flushes. It is a float switch, so I know it is susceptible to fouling from solids that will cake up in the tank over a period of years, but I have not had that happen yet. Using a digesting-type of holding tank additive will help keep this to a minimum. It is easy to install, and the gasket that was supplied with the unit has not shown any sign of leakage. I'm not in the business of selling or installing these, have no conflict of interest, and I highly recommend this unit.

          "This instrument will give you YEARS of reliable service if installed properly". Quit working, defective, one year warranty, nothing to wear out. I do not think 20 months is anywhere near YEARS. If they are all made like this do not bother buying, $89 for a little switch is a bit much. Company suggests buy a new one!
