Long time lurker, first time poster.

This piqued my interest, as it relates to my upcoming electric build. I've been looking to switch between two sensors, as well (RTDs). I don't see why it wouldn't work, assuming the switch has minimal intrinsic resistance. Temperature is determined by the PID by detecting the resistance between the two wires of the RTD (which varies with temperature changes in the probe). So long as the switch doesn't add resistance (and I would hope it doesn't...), it shouldn't change the temperature reading, should it?

If you were using a thermocouple type sensor, then I think it would be a different story.

Looks fantastic. Can't wait to see the finish product...and hopefully in action!

The fitting and sight glas are from MoreBeer while the thermowell is from brewershardware.com.

I would not use a switch in line with the sensor. You can try it, but I would not recommend it.

Finished putting together my chiller and the pump house. The chiller is just a 25' copper coil with fittings sweated on. The pump house include two march 809s connected to the QDs on the top. The fronts are the inlets and the tops are the outlets. I used thermoplastic tubing and stainless 1/2" tube for the bends in the box.

I am almost done. I just need to make two more extension cords to connect the Pump House and then cut up my tubing and I am all done (for now).

Here is the labeled pump house and everything sitting on the stand.













Pardon the crazy mess in the background...
