remote control

Is there not a remote control that could replace say a Honeywell 6006 on an indirect W.H. ? I mean one that a homeowner could go to and push a button as opposed to moving the dial, and be about 10 feet away from the tank. Thanks

    I have used a Honeywell and Johnson Controls digital remote bulb thermostat controllers. Same type as you use for refrigeration. You can mount the control up to 50+ feet away. I have one on my IDWH. The control is like 15ft away from the tank. I ran 2 wire for the sensor and packed the well with heat paste. I can get you the 2 different control part numbers, if you would like?

    These people have an aquastat five feet from the tank. Um, they have water Temp. isuues that are special to them.  If I could come up with somthing more adapt to special needs, and easy to read, it would be a real hit. Thanks.

    'remote' DHW tank control

    You could look at a tekmar 161 "setpoint" control. It has an LCD digital display and special DHW Mode and would allow them to see and adjust the tank temperature. You would place the tank sensor (included) in the 1/2" well and run the two wires to the controller which could be placed any distance away.

    The control needs 24Vac power and has a 24V 2A rated contact that closes to turn on your heating device.
