    Depends on what you are using them for. Just to monitor? Get a "temperature module" on this site with the cheap sensors from the bottom of page.

    want to log data? go with the x300

    Yes. I had plumber put in Ts where I needed them.. put in the well. Sensors came with a putty type stuff to coat and put in the well. You COULD strap them down to the surface and insulate over. would work fine.

    i will be going the x300 route, taping sensors to tank and then spray foam over. it has relays also, 3 i believe, that i will use to turn off the storage circ pump and kick on the oil boiler if/when needed (hopefully not much!).

    Azel makes a very nice digital temp gage.

    They have a single digital display that monitors 2 temps via. sensors that can connected up to 500 ft. away using t-stat wire.

    The sensors can be mounted in a temp well or can be strapped on (they have a concave surface so as to fit snugly against a pipe surface).
