    The flowmeter completes a circuit. A phone jack will work to make a "pigtail". Just jump the two center wires together (please double check: look at the socket. Should only be two contacts for the center wires). Works very well to troubleshoot. If your SWG is only powered when the pump is on, say through your timer, you might use instead of flowmeter. However, if your pump siezes and the power stays on, you will have toxic gas buildup.

    I don't think that this thread tells how to bypass the flow switch, but it does have info on how to get a (relatively) inexpensive replacement should you need it.
