Tunze ATO

Just a quick thought,

I was looking at the directions for my ATO online, and the backup float switch seems like it's mounted upside down, like the wire facing down.

I reversed the float (taking off the clip and flipping the float over) and it works perfectly fine in the "correct" position. I was just concerned that water would penetrate the RTV or whatever they use and short out the switch.
