    Thought you all might enjoy a photo of nicely zoned install. The work of a true professional is indeed inspiring.

    The mix temperature for each zone is individually controlled, and even if one pump fails at least the rest of the house will remain comfortable until the repairman can deal with the emergency.

    Beautiful work.
    How big is the house?
    Why so many zones.
    Did you do the install?
    Do you have any other pics?

    Workmanship is pretty nice.
    Huge from what I gather.
    I believe it's called "milking the job".
    Not hardly.
    No, this one was lifted from HeatingHelp, where the pros hang out.

    That is hard to do even from scratch! I done system or two with that many pumps, one of them wrapped around three sides of the room. House was 8,000 SQ ft. My guess is the low temp zones in the fore ground are piped to a pex manifold some where else. That helps keep the boiler room nice and clean. I am sure it works fine but with a lot of zones calling, with a P/S that first [in picture] zones is going to see some pretty cool water. Before some one else points it out, the HX on the floor is not in the preferred vertical position. I think that my electric bill goes up about a hundred bucks a month during the heating season. I think I currently have 19 pumps on my system. about half cycle on demand.
