    Need help...I added a wood stove(with built in water tank) to a forced hot water system...with a oil fired burner.....my issue is a little confusing though.....the wood stove is hooked up to the feed of the house with a taco circulator(lets call it #6) attached to an aquastat. Now, I have 5 more circulators with a 6 zone controller. How do I get the number 2 circulator(living room) to turn on when number 6 begins to circulate the hot water. Yes I did hard wire number 2 and 6 together and they both went on but then number 2 only answers to the aquastat on the woodstove but not to the thermostat in the living room. 5 circulators have thermostats and the woodstove has aquastat.

    Summary I want to get #6 to turn on #2 when woodstove reaches temp but I also want number 2 to turn on oil boiler when thermostat calls for heat but I dont want #2 to turn #6 on and circulate water through woodstove when it is not running.

    Do they make such a product that has macro switch... or am I not making any sense....or is there a simple wiring solution....ask me any questions .....you like...

    Thankyou for your help
