    Looks like it is almost closed (on picture)
    Maybe open that valve a little bit more.

    Yes ball valve. I have been messing with that trying to find the sweet spot. I can get the top of the tank up to 138 or so but thats about it so far. When i turn on a zone to stir the tank it drops right out

    I think you should set up your controls that the zones can not extract heat from the tank before the tank is charged to a certain degree.

    I *think* you have to open that valve up more when you are first heating your storage. Most of the water will bypass the first time you bring your storage up to temp for the season. Once storage is heated, you close that valve down more. It takes a while to get up to temp, especially if you just started the boiler a few hours ago.

    (I have a loading valve, so I may be completely wrong)

    Just so you know.. Pump does NOT launch off flue temp.

    I believe it's at 104 degrees water on BOILER temp.

    Just an FYI

    You can watch it come to temp and start the pump.

    Mike, Glad to hear that you got all the air out. AS JP noted the pump starts on water temp.
