I would like to wire up my march pump with something other then a home light switch. I see all the rims & herms systems using nice illuminated turn style switches. Where are these sourced from.

I have all but given up on radio shack. They don't have anyone employed that knows anything other then cell phone sales anymore. Last time I was in the one by me the guy gave me a blank stare when I asked if something was 12v or 120v.......

I got my illiuminated rocker switch 120V 20A from radio shack. The nice switches a lot of people on here have are industrial, and you need a contacor block for the back of them. They are nice, but expensive.

How about wireless?

Works slick for switching my March pump.
