Question about Plumbing
It would appear this float requires a steeper angle to operate. Is it possible for you to mount the float cord lower or shorten it? By doing so it will close at a earlier time starting the pump. THis may be done with the use of some electrical (zip) ties.
I hope this may have assited you,

Tips for a great answer:
Just wanted to share my fix story. A couple of years ago I had a problem with my zoeller sump pump to turning on but it would if I ever so lightly tapped it or the discharge pipe. Naturally I suspected the switch and replaced it with the same results. I ended up zip tying a piece of foam to the float and bingo! This worked great for awhile until the foam loosened and got stuck. So back to the drawing board. I noticed on a parts list that zoeller recommends changing the float arm when replacing the switch. Put in a new float arm and it works great! No foam needed. I never thought to replace it in the first place because the old one moved fine but when compared to the new arm the new one is much smoother. I was able to remove the old arm with channel lock pliers and the new piece is press fit with some loctite #609 that came with it. Hope this helps!
