Typically if you have 2 switches, there are two pumps for the system. If you have a 3 way valve mounted on the side near the driver seat, then you will have only 1 pump and operating that valve will select which you are going to do, fill, aerate, or drain.

I only have 1 pump and switch only turns on fill option

Then it is self aerating. Im guessing that there is an overflow tube inside the well?

there is

Ok, when you set your pump to the timer side of the switch, it will turn on and off through out the day keeping the well full and aerated. Thus keeping the fish alive by always bringing in fresh water for them.
