Sewage pump water level


I just installed a new .6 HP sewage pump in my homes ejector pit. The pump has a tethered float. The only concern is the pit fills with quite a bit of water before the float is activated. The height of the water reaches at least halfway up the 4 inch drain that's filling the pit. Is this a potential problem?

Pump should fire before water hits bottom of the incoming pipe.

The tethered float is attached to the top of the pump with a screw and plastic clip. Is there a good way to remove this method and attach the line at a lower level on the pump or pvc so the pump activates sooner? I shortened the line but still not kicking on early enough for my liking.
