Aquastat is designed to thermostatically turn any B&G NBF circulator ON and OFF. The AQ-1/2 or AQ-3/4 will switch the pump OFF at 120°F (48.9°C) and ON at 100°F (37.8°C). The aquastats are available in separate models that will sense the temperature for either 1/2” or 3/4” copper pipe.
AUTOMATIC TIMER KIT and AQUASTAT COMBINATION – The automatic timer and aquastat kits can be used in combination. When they are used together, the pump will only circulate water when the ON time conditions are met and when water temperature is low enough to cause the aquastat to switch ON.
