Taco or Bell & Gosset BRONZE type pump since it is an open system (feed water from you water supply).
This link is broken, either the page no longer exists or there is some other issue like a typo.
You can add an aquastat to shut off the circulator if the temperature drops below a setpoint (120 degrees) at the outlet side of the coil in your stove. It will save electricity and wear on the pump by stopping it if the stove isn't at a high enough burn rate. A gate type valve is recommended for slowing the water flow through the coil or loop. If the water circulates too fast it will not have enough time in the coil or loop to absorb the heat from the fire.
My question is: What GPM rating is correct for a pump to circulate the water through the SS loop on my Alaska? I would "guess" that the smallest pump would be correct, then again this is a guess. I'd rather ask the question here then buy too small a pump or waste $$$ on too big a pump.
