Electrical or battery powered thermostat?

Hi.
I started to post this in the thermostatic forum but I believe this is more of an electrical question. I have a Honeywell CT87K Heat Only thermostat. I want to replace is with a programmable...

I measured the length of pipe that goes into the trap and it's about 15". Based on the ceiling height, I can probably add an additional 15" piece of pipe. I'll use a one of those rubber pipe couplers...

Yes, I've got efflorescence on some cinder block at my house so I don't think this is the same thing. Strange because it just doesn't look like any pictures of mold that I've seen online.

Does this look like mold?

I am rehabbing a house I just purchased and came across something in my basement that I'm thinking could possibly be mold, but I'm not sure. The foundation is fieldstone. The house was built in 1920....
