        This item was back ordered from Amtrol by PEX Supply, and took quite a bit longer to get delivered than I had originally hoped... but, it was well worth the wait as this is the latest unit and is a direct retrofit replacement to all previous models.
        I did have a few questions for Amtrol tech support as the wiring for this unit was slightly different and there was an extra plug coming from the thermistor that I was not 100% sure about. The biggest difference from my 15yr old unit was that in addition to having an additional wire & plug it also had a threaded in plug to clamp it in place. I called to question removal of the old one, and it turned out to just be a press fit and it a pair of pliers came out easily and the new one threaded in fine. The 2 different Amtrol tech reps that I spoke with were very helpful and friendly, so do not hesitate to call them if you have any doubts how this retrofit is installed.

              SupplyHouse recommended this product as a replacement for a controller that burnt out. My plumber installed it in in 20 minutes. Net result: i saved more than half over what the oil company wanted to repair the BoilerMate.

                    I am so pleased with this new Smart Control. The installation was easy and it only took 20 minutes to install. That is good for not the most "handy guy."

                    In addition, I think that it is working more efficiently than the original. I have subsequently reduced the heating temperature of the hot water heater since I installed it and the family has not even noticed it while they are taking hot showers.

                                Perfect replacement for my Amtrol water storage tank, forty gallon capacity. The old control lasted about six years. Some of the resistors were burned out on the inside and a relaying was constantly clicking with the old unit. Funny the internal fuses didn't blow in an overload situation. I hope I don't have that problem again. Pexsupply had product to me very quickly. I have always been satisfied with their quick service.

                                      I used to replace the old one in my boiler, it was very easy to install but the item needs to replace every five to six years.

                                                        Took 12 days to get but worth the wait, my old contoller worked intermittantly. This new one works great , won't kick the burner on until it needs heat, less run time than my 15 year old one.

I can already see and feel the difference in cost and temperature of water. At this juncture of time there has been no negatives for me. GREAT!
