Can I follow the "simplest pressurized" schematic for open storage?

    I mean minus the expansion of course. This sounds like a dumb question to me, but I'm not sure I see why not. Or can anyone point me to a good open storage schematic, preferably something without a $150 diverter valve like it seems appears in Tarm's stuff?

    I've GOT to get my storage built and online because I've found waking up at 5:30 to get the house warm for the fam is not exactly my thing.

    If your are using a heat exchanger in your storage then yes.

    I use a slightly different scheme for my own system. The oil, wood, and storage circs all have integral flow-check valves. The HX in storage can act as a heat source using the tank circ with bottom-to-top flow, or as a heat load (for charging) with the tank zone valve open, giving it top-to-bottom flow.
