    Just talked to my rep and he showed me a heat timer set point control with a pressure or temperature resistor to control the variable speed B&G pump. Looks pretty simple. Appx. $250.00

    Johnson Contols makes...

    an electronic speed control that I have used as a varaible speed control for small pumps. It requires a 0-10 VDC input, so you will have to have a temperature control that outputs 0-10 VDC, something like the Johnson A350 series. A company called Viconics also has neat thermostats with the option of remote sensors that will work. The Johnson speed control is a model S66AA-1C.
