I thought Craig was one off the owners in the past, could be just a another guy same name.  Not bad on wood usage, in cold weather I burn full cord every 10 - 12 days.  How much home are you heating? New construction?

My home was built in 68, fully remodeled in 90's (needs to be redone again)
2k SF on the main level and a full finished basement, keep the stat at 70*, also heat the dhw, and a 1500sf garage with radiant,  keep the garage set for 65* but its been staying in the mid 40's with this cold snap we all been seeing.

I installed using the rehau pipe, buried as deep as my septic would allow,  Hit a lateral when I was trenching  :o

That's rough!! did it damage it much??? Good call on using the Rheau pipe, I used the 1 1/4 inch myself...that's some tough crap!

No, not much damage to the septic tile, fortunately it was clay tile and I just skimmed the top of the pipe, I only noticed I hit it after I was cleaning out the trench with the shovel. I used some of the sticky backed asphalt flashing material to cover the hole,  I applied 3 layers of this and put a couple shingles over the pipe to protect any rocks/ soil from putting too much pressure on the patch.

5th year with my 6000. First year went through a solenoid and an aquastat. No cracks and I’m very happy with it.
I can’t read the numbers on the aquastat and i wanna replace it, again, anyone know if the “Love Controller” on eBay will work? They are about 68$ shipped.

I've used both of these to control various furnaces. Not sure how your old controller mounted, these require a rectangular slot to clip into.
The inkbird one comes with a probe, the love control you buy it separately.
