    The science of hydronics is quite complicated, and explaining it all in a post is going to be very difficult. It sounds like you have a one pipe system - this is quite normal.

    But as far as the control and how you pipe the wood boiler in, there are lots of variables.

    First thing - can you point us to the specs on that boiler? I don't see that exact model number on the thermo-control site.
