This question is for RIC the Plumber..HI ..
(I'm surprised you got notifeied at all because the web site kept returning an error message last night)
I am doing some plumbing for a wood boiler and I have a Question about the use of a HW aquastat
plumbed in line to trigger a dump zone and possibly a pump.
I have on hand a HW L6006 and a HW L4080. What I have started to do, to trigger a dump zone, I to tee off my supply line from the boiler, close to it, and to configure pipe to that it i deep enough to accomodate the probe of the control..essentially mimicking the tapping on a boiler... The L4080 has a threaded probe, the L6006 just has the copper lead and then a probe.
Assumming what I just told you works, (this would be 24v), I plan to run a tt line from the control so that when at water is at the desired set point (break circuit on set point), the zone valve for the dump zone will open. I plan on running the line and pigtailing it in with the proper zone in my Taco ZVC4000 zone valve controller, which I am hoping will energize the pumps and the zone valve..the zone valves are HW motorized 4 wire zone valves.
Please verify that this would work, and which control would be best to use, and also which contacts on the control to use for open on set point..
