How did you secure the BCS to the enclosure frame? I thought about using a strap of thin gauge
tin that I could bend to make a strap that could be screwed into the enclosure panel but wanted
to see if...

I started having some intermittent problems with my spark igniters. I swapped them out for the
hot surface igniters (HSI's) and they are working great. They are powered by 120V, so I wired
all three o...

So, the hot leg of the outlet you will plug a pump into is wired to one terminal from both

the switch is tu...

an enclosure to house all the electrical components. I am thinking of building some kind of
mounting arm t...

Any chance of getting a pic or explanation of how you used the igniter?

Brewed today with the new igniter system. It worked flawlessly! The BCS fires the igniters for
a few seconds every time a gas valve opens. My standing pilot lights kept getting blown out by
wind, so t...
