Customer Question
I have an ideal...

I have an ideal condensing boiler on an y plan (mid position valve).

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

I'm trying to wire it up lol

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Boiler terminal block, L N E which is straight forward. I have a five core wire. Two spare blacks. I need to connect correctly to wiring centre from boiler terminals. Spare terminals in boiler are SL1 L and SL2. Should one black go to L then connect to pump live in wiring centre, then one black to SL2, then connect that to motor valve terminal in wiring centre?
