Here is a detail view of the mechanical float switches inside an enclosure. Note how fabric mesh has been applied inside the enclosure to provide basic filtering of small particulates. A heavier gauge mesh has been applied outside the enclosure to provide physical protection. Although the enclosure is designed from multiple metal pieces, the final production version would likely be much simpler to reduce costs.
