Fuel pump float

Have a 2003 mercury sable ls, the fuel pump was replaced in jan of this year before i bought the car, todaythe car started sputtering and stalled gas guage read 1/4 tank, had it towed to a shop they said the fuel pump was brand newand working fine but the fuel pump float was bad and the only way to fix that would be to replace the fuel pump again, is there any way to fix or replace the float without replacing the fuel pump too?
