    I pulled one out, twice and took it completely apart, soaked everything in solvent. I must be missing something or maybe it's trashed.

    @Crepitus - should I replace components like those floats or is it just more practical to get a new one?

    Unless you already have the tools and chemicals you need to do it you won't be saving much money by rebuilding them.

    If the floats are metal they can be reused as long as there is no liquid inside them, if neoprene (black plastic) they should be replaced.

    if the float is neoprene that is likely the problem
