: For several reasons; I prefer that the plumber follow the factory piping arrangement available at:

: It uses the best of John Siegenthaler's conceptual purpose with the zoned system off the larger ports.

The tank you were looking at is the 120 gal buffer tank, which is $3000-5000. I was looking at the RJS080 for $600. It is at the following link:
I'm confused as to what you mean with the zoned system coming off the ports.
I thought all wew were doing is leaving the supply and return manifolds attached as they currently are to the closely spaced tees on the boiler loop.
Then, in the primary loop plumbing where the hot boiler water exits the boiler heat exchanger, it would simply flow through the tank and back to that same pipe in the boiler loop. In other words, the boiler loop would have another 80 gallons of water to heat, but the supply and return headers would not be moved from their present configurations on the closely spaced tees in the boiler loop.
So, following the water, it would be pumped by the 0010 into the boiler inlet, go through boiler, out boiler inlet, into storage tank, out of storage tank, around loop through the closely spaced tees and then back to the 0010.

Am I off base on this?
