If you haven't bought it yet, get a switch that doesn't involve its wires being in the bilge water. A little diesel fuel on top and the the wires rot and the water gets into the switch, corroding it from within. Plus it adds a nice bit of leakage current to eat your anodes. I had two go, one after the other, so I got the air pressure type switch.
