Removing Water From a Float Switch

We all have some weird tools we keep in our tool bags. A baster may look suspicious, but it comes in really handy for removing water from a float switch.

This one is extra handy because it comes with a nice tapered bottle brush inside it that works great to clean out the outlet port from the pan and the pan segments on the sides of the coil.

I got this one for $1.98 from Walmart. You can't beat that!

What's a weird tool that you keep in your bag?
