Question about Electrical Supplies
You seem to be misunderstanding something. The drawing which Blue Dog posted above shows a common power source connected to two separate switches. (one being your toggle switch, the other your float switch)
It does not show a single-pole, double-throw switch. (aka: a switch with two outputs)
Based on your earlier comment regarding "positive to negative" I assume that you were using a DC voltmeter. AC voltage is neither positive, or negative and it requires an AC voltage tester.
BTW:Be sure to observe correct polarity on all of your connections:
Silver colored screws: Neutral line
Copper colored screws: 120v line

Sorry for my failed graphics! You should do it like this, and like kuwaitim says, make sure everything is rated for your voltage.
