The piggyback remote float switch allows to regulate the On and Off levels for the automatic operation mode of the pump. When mounted on the pump (default install), the float switch has On level range of 9"-14" and Off level range of 2"-6". The 509500 model also features an oil-filled motor (lubricated for life), 2" high legs and a 2" FNPT discharge.
The 509500 model sewage pump is capable of handling spherical solids up to 2" in diameter and is commonly installed at the bottom of the sewage collection tank/basin. 2" legs integrated into the pump's design eliminate the need for a pedestal.

Review for: Little Giant 9S-CIA-RFS (509500) Automatic Submersible Sewage Pump w/ Piggyback Remote Float Switch, 4/10HP, 15' cord
"This Little Giant pump is a replacement for the original that failed after 4 years. These pumps usually last longer than that - I hope this one does! We use these pumps to transfer sewage about 300 feet from the home to central sewage lines."
Hi I get nervous waiting to hear that alarm that always comes at an inopportune time? A few days ago when I flush the toilet it seems to fill up a little too high with water as if it may be slightly plugged (and its not) - is that a sign to the is pump is going out? I bought the model 9S-CIA-RFS #509500 2 years ago. There is just myself here.

If the pump is working, the issue may be with the float switch. Since this pump has a wide angle type switch, it needs sufficient space to freely move up and down. Check the sewage basin for any debris to rule out this option. Alternatively, you may want to adjust (not cut) the length of the cord from pump to the float switch - this can be done by loosening the metal holding pin on the pump and then pulling the cord in to shorten the swing.
