    Need your help! What does Aquarite SWG Flow Sensor cable end look like?

    Hello TFP'ers!
    I'm in need of your help. My dog chewed through my flow sensor cable last fall and now I can't find the plug end.

    If you have an Aquarite SWG, can you do me a favor and tell me what pins the red/black wire align to on the RJ-45 plug (data cable end) on the flow sensor. On mine, the end I'm referring to plugs into the bottom of the Aquarite system box (gray cable). Looking at it from the same orientation as the image, what number pin is red and which is black? I had originally thought this was an RJ-11 plug (telephone cable end), but looking at what is on Amazon (and not being at home to look at the jack), it looks like RJ-45.



    Any help would be appreciated! I'd rather save $75 and just crimp a new end on to the half of my cable that didn't end up in a pile of dog **** in the backyard!
    Thanks,
    -Bryan

    If no one gets back to you today, I can check when I get home tonight.

    BTW, in the mean time you could just twist the wires together and thus bypass the flow switch so it will keep generating ... just make sure the SWG is not on without the pump.

    EDIT: nevermind, I am an idiot

    I think it is an RJ-11, does not seems as wide as the RJ-45. The red and black on in the center 2 pins, black = 4 and red = 5 in your diagram. Picture to follow.

    Actually the colors should not matter since it is just a continuity switch.
