    Hunted around for one of these - eventually had to be happy with a 12V float switch and 12V/240V relay..

    It looks something like this :

    Please post if you do manage to find a 240V/250V switch though. Good luck.

    I would still drive them via a relay. Have had 240 volt switches from RS die on me. They are only reed switches, not designed to carry much current.
