Were you going to use the dosing pump with a level switch? If so the stuck switch dilema will still be there. A timed dosing pump is just OK since the dosing rates may or may not keep up with evaporation.
Don't worry so much about the failed level switch. Put a redundant one in if it makes you feel better. I've had them fail on me a couple times. It's never been an electrical failure but salt on the switch making it stick. One time stuck open, one time stuck closed. I've never had more than a few gallons of water on the floor. Don't worry about spills - they're inevitable. Just try to minimize them.
