Replaced 12amp sump pump switch with 15amp switch?
The float switch blew on my 1/2 hp sump switch and the only replacement switch I could find was for a 3/4 hp sump pump. The new switch fits perfectly but its rated 15a instead of the original 12a switch. My question is, this should work fine right? There is no fuse built into the switch or anything right?
I'm thinking that the new switch is simply rated for a higher draw and it will simply be underutilized. Anyone here know for sure?
