Thanks! I ended up wiring the switches to control an outlet. I wanted to avoid cutting the plug end off the pump cord.

In other news, I found 1/4" needle valves and am going to run 1/4" aluminum lines from the valves to the burners. Now I just need the 90 degree orifices like you found.

Any response to my questions a few posts previous?

You are going to have a problem with the 1/4" line as it will only give you about 40K BTU due to the size. You really need to keep it 1/2" to get the max out of your banjo burner, which is 100k BTU at high pressure. The 1/2" ball valve will give you plenty adjustability. The link below will show you the BTU delivered for various sizes and lengths.
