    Thanks Noel.I think I follow where you are taking me.

    Forget about series piping the boiler,because of the down
    side of series piping boiler.parallel piping all tho better
    arrangement still not the cats.

    So the better option is primary/secondary,using the boiler
    as a secondary loops?

    My way of thinking was going with the buffer tank,so we can store all the btus and at the same time eliminated the need for the ho worrying about having to be there to stroke the fire if you will.I understand this does depend on how cold it gets outside.

    I was hoping maybe with a big enough tank,we can get him to only having to throw wood in the morning and then again at night.

    I think with the winters we have in my area the buffer tank
    is looking good as well,your thoughts?

    I mean, can we not charge more for convenice? $$$$

    I like....

    I'm thinking have the buffer tank ALSO be a pumped secondary loop, so you can shut it off when the oil boiler is running. Run the buffer tank pump AFTER the wood boiler gets up to temperature, so the wood heats fast and first, the buffer tank keeps the load on the wood fire to keep it burning clean, and to give back heat after the fire goes out, and when the tank becomes cool, stop it's pump and let the oil boiler take over.

    Three secondaries on the supply side, and whatever your loads are on the demand side.

    What do you think?

    I'm thinking, I love you man! That might just be the ticket.

    Also will help to keep the same wiring with the indirect tank when there a call for priority.
    I'm just wondering now that he's going with the wood boiler
    as well,do I keep the reset control or do I do away with it
    all together?

    I know he wants to make the wood boiler his main fuel source.

    I'd still use it.

    It'll save fuel just the same.

    Yes the boiler is going outside,but he is thinking about
    closing it in.
    He wants to put fairly close to the home,but I'm assuming
    these things put out a lot of smoke.
    So I might try in talk him into moving it further away but
    not sure that is a good ideal or not.

    As for the boiler he's leaving it up to me to make that call.That is why I place the call to you.
