yea, so far so good.
i did a test by pouring water into the cup and forced it to overflow. the fload did was it was supposed to do. the only aligning you have to do is make sure it does not rub and get stuck on the walls of the cup. as long as the float is floating freely it will work great !!!!!
one little mod i'm thinking of doing is to silicone a piece of string to the top of the float and thread it thru the collection cup cap. this way i can pull on the string now and again to make sure the float is moving freely, this also tests to make sure the skimmer turns off as it's supposed to do.
if you look at my image, you can see the wire (black electrical tape) is zip tied to a piece of hard air line tubing which runs thru the collection cup cap. this is the conduit i will use to run my string (fishing line).
