    If your tap is micro switched it should have wires coming from it.

    if you have a submersible pump.. it will have a micro switch.. also look under the sink.. wires coming down from the tap.

    if you have a Surflo pressure pump .. no micro switches

    If you try tightening the middle section, it will be obvious if it's loose as it will easily turn slightly. Mine is just hand tight and has been ok since (over a year)
