    Is the float switch on the Varios compatible with the Apex as well?

    The float switch has a specific cable plug to allow it to connect to the varios controller, and will not connect to the Apex directly.

    Taken from the BRS website: "ICECAP cable: Compatible with Gyre Interface Modules, VarioS Controllers, and more. The 6.5 foot Y Module cable lets you connect two VarioS pump controllers or Gyre Interface Modules directly to a 0-10v controller like the Neptune Apex Controller."
