FWIW, I'm going to get the Ranco controller:
ETC Supply

I could easily wire it myself, but with 3 kids, time is at a premium, so I'll be getting the pre-wired version.

Of course, if the wife OKs the Apex, then I'll use that, but I think this is more palatable in the short term

I can't find anything that indicates if the probe is waterproof though. The Johnsons Controls thermostatic controller definitely isn't and it looks to have a similar probe.

I am going to do more digging on this before I pullthe trigger.

I got the Ranco yesterday. I haven't hooked it up yet, I'll probably do that tonight. Nicely built, very solid.

FYI, if you do buy it from ETC supply, they will put on heat shrink tubing for you on the sensor for $1.50.
