Customer Question
I have a Ra=yPak...

I have a Ra=yPak Versa Millivolt Plus 50KBTU gas furnace and want to install a digital thermostat for my hot tub. How hard is it?

Contractor's Assistant: Did you double-check the thermostat? And what about the pilot light?

Double check it for what? The furnace is working fine now but I want a digital control to turn it on at a specified temperature. The dial seems variable.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Either that or hiring an electrician.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Our hot tub people installed a manual dial thermostat into the unit when it was installed. I'd like a digital unit.

Hello, its about a 3 hour components selection and wiring diagram production job.. that would be a $150 premium service that i can submit if you are interested.

.

OR you would wire a 24volt transformer into your hot tub circuits, use it to operate a 24volt valve in the hot water boiler line wired in series with a honeywell aguastat, and control power to the aguastat with a programmable thermostat with its R and W terminals jumpered
