Product Description

Livewell Fill/Aerate Rocker Switch

Genuine Carling Contura II rocker switch labeled “Livewell Fill / Aerate”.   This Livewell Fill & Aerate rocker switch is a Single Pole Double Throw ON-OFF-ON switch.  All of New Wire Marine’s rocker switches are labeled with durable UV stabilized ink and large format text.

This product is the ENTIRE SWITCH combo and includes both the switch body and the labeled cover.  Find the Livewell Fill/Aerate switch cover sold separately here.  See also our standard ON-OFF livewell switch here.

Our Livewell Fill/Aerate rocker switch has one indicator light on the top and one on the bottom.  It’s usually used to run two pumps.  One that pumps sea water in from thru-hull pickup, and another pump that recirculates the water inside the livewell, adding oxygen to it.

This Livewell Fill/Aerate rocker switch will replace any Carling V-series or Contura style rocker switch.  That includes Contura style switches sold by Carling, Sierra, Blue Sea Systems, Sea-Dog, etc.  It uses an industry-standard 1.45″  x 0.83″ mounting hole.

How Our Switches Are Better:

  1. Genuine Carling switches – We’ll never try and pass off cheap Chinese knock-offs like some of our competitors. You’ve probably seen other sites list a switch as “fits carling”… that’s a red flag.  All our switches and covers are the genuine article.  And like all cheaply made counterfeits, you CAN tell the difference.
  2. Support – We know this product inside and out and are happy to help our customers.  Need help wiring up one of our products, just call: (843) 297-8348
  3. Guarantee – While Carling does not offer a warranty, we’re so confidant in the quality, if your switch breaks or the ink wears off within 2 years, you can return it for a free replacement!
  4. Durable UV stabilized ink – Have trouble with labels wearing off on your switches?  That’s because cheap non-UV stabilized ink was used… you won’t find that here.
  5. Hard cover style – We never use the “soft touch” style that will melt into a sticky mess after a few months in the sun.

Contura Styles, Lenses and Colors:

We also carry this label in Contura V style switch here.  The Contura V style includes a two-lamp switch, which allows a great backlighting effect for night readability.

    The new switches were way higher quality than what was already in the boat, I’m very pleased with these and the blue light when turned on is awesome, thank you New Wire Marine

  2. Calvin C. (verified owner)

    Seem like good switches
    Not too bad. I can’t find a couple of them switches I need. My old one. When your looking at the back has 4 prongs left and one on the right.

  3. Ronald Kelley (verified owner)

    Ordered replacement switches for sun faded on Ranger boat dash. Switches were quality and fit perfectly.
    Will be replacing bow panel switches covers instead of complete switches.
