    It's complicated, put it this way my boss over kills everything, my guess is it won't modulate down far enuf for the smallest zone. The one thing I like about it is when I add antifreeze all I har to do is fill the buffer tank with 100% and I don't have to purge any air out if the loops which in most cases is a pain when you have antifreeze. The more you tell him one thing the more he does the other so questioning him is useless.

    Hey, it's his money I guess! Could be a nice mark-up waiting to happen on a warehouse full of boiler buddies for all I know.
