The part I need cannot possibly cost £999. I only need the "plug in" part. Very disappointing £27- worth so far !

Expert:  Plumberpro replied 2 years ago.
Sorry , that must have been for a commercial one . when you say magnetic switch , do you mean a magnetic plughole stopper ?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Yes, I think I do. The device is a plughole stopper and the magnet part switches on the motor when it is aligned correctly within the hole. Does that help?
