Ok I went back to the beginning but am still confused. If your compressor is the air lift pump that puts water in the storage tank and the jet pump draws water out of the storage tank, the float switch should not be connected to the jet pump in any way?

Agreed, Valveman. I think it is only acting as a junction. I suppose someone did that to avoid having a 3-way splice in the junction box.
