Thanks for the info. I’ll contact Oliver – I did meet him a couple of years ago in the Algarve and he certainly knows his stuff! Unfortunately we won’t be back on the boat in Grenada until later this year – Covid has certainly worked havoc with our place recently.

I was able to do it, so it can't be that hard :)
It will take you a day to set up and requires a Windows computer to configure the software for the pump controller and interface between the Frigoboat interface and the pump controller. Point, click and load files. I would reach out to Oliver - he's a bit busy with a new child, but he will respond eventually. I can't speak for him, but I think he's intending on making a ready-to-install solution. That will probably make it easier to implement. I have no commercial interest in this nor do I want any.
I wanted to get it early because I "only" had a few remaining flojet pumps aboard. And being in the South Pacific and hearing about Garulfo waiting months to get a new pump, I wanted a better solution ASAP. If you do it yourself, you'll need to get a bracket made to mount the motor and pump head, but that was simple and cost me $20 - it's just a bent piece of aluminum. Aligning the motor to the pump head was the most difficult part, but I did it with a cordless hand drill and a dremel. I'm sure the metal shop could do that part for you, too.
