The Potty Sniffer pump can be easily installed remotely outside of the toilet tank. This may be required if there is insufficient space inside of the tank for the Sniffer pump, for easier access to an electrical outlet, or if a silent Potty Sniffer installation is preferred. A switch cable extension with screw terminal connectors and 15′ length of 4-conductor flat modular cable is included with all standard Potty Sniffer kits with longer lengths available as an add-on option (up to 100′).
The Sniffer pump has been verified to function acceptably with 60′ length 3/8″ O.D. tubing run and is capable of pumping water, in case of accidental suction, up to 15′ head height.

Push Button Switch Cable Extension
4-conductor AWG 26 cable RJ11 telephone cable (available at most home improvement stores) may be used to lengthen the switch cable extension. Before moving the connectors to the new cable, make note of the existing wire colors and which terminal position each wire connects to. The red dot represents the +12VDC power wire position.
For a stronger grip, strip the extension cable wires 1/4″ and fold them back over the conductor jacket before securing them to the screw terminal connector.
