How long can the switches stay submerged. You've said they don't support it but they are designed for tanks, implying they are in contact with water. Will they switch down to 12 volts. If not, what is the minimum DC voltage. Thanks

You list 3 sizes of float switch. I want a switch to monitor the water level in a stream to warn of flooding. As the switch is very likely to become submerged to abour 300mm would any of the 3 be ok. The switch would operate a hooter at 12v Thanks Allen
