I understand your response for splitting the loop into two. A couple of more questions:
1. Because of the physical layout of the piping, splitting the loop into two loops, with the additional 1 inch return piping (in the middle) will increase the total pipe circuits to about 250-270 feet (125-135 feet for each loop). This is still over the maximum piping for the pump (for each loop). Should I split the original loop into 3 loops, to keep them each under/at 100 feet?
2. If I have to split the original loop into 3 loops, will a 1 inch return pipe be large enough, or should I go to 1 1/2 inch for the return to the circulator pump?
3. If I have to go to a larger return pipe, will the Taco 007 circulator pump be able to carry the volume of water on the return, or will it "bottleneck" because it can only handle a 3/4 inch pipe return? Will I need a different circulator pump that can move a greater volume of water?
Thanks for taking the time to respond...
