1. The two temperature sensors comes with 6″ of wire and fours wire nuts. You can extend the wire up tot 20′ without impacting the resistor/thermo couple accuracy. There is plenty of misinformation on the internet telling you that 20′ of wire will change the resistance of the sensor, please ignore it and extend the wire but do not exceed 20′. Another item is to use pipe insulation to cover the sensors top. Especially important if you are installing them inside the pipe. All you need to do is to insulate the top of the sensors with some foam and aluminum foil. This will enable the sensor to read the water temp as oppose to be influenced by the sun and give the controller erroneous temperature read outs.
2. As of 06/18/2018, the valve listed in the description as 2 way 1, 1/2. This is incorrect. The vale is a 3 way 2″. My system is mostly 1, 1/2 so I purchase 3 adapters at the Home Depot ($1.25 each) that reduced the vale to a 3 way 1, 1/2 as I needed it to be.
3. If you want to re-use or disassemble the valve down the road, I suggest you to purchase few PVC adapters that allow you to screw and unscrew the valve as opposed to glue it to your PVC pipes. You can do that by acquiring few coupler with o-rings, you will glue the screw on adapter and then with some Teflon tape you will connect the vale to your system.
I highly recommend this KIT if you want to automate your solar heater system!

obstructed, and a means of displaying the LED indicator lights so that they can be seen from an angle and not just head-on
