: If so what are some of the common pressures to distance?
: ++ As many of the residential circulators top out near 10 feet of heat or roughly 5 psig, many designers use that reading on distances not exceeding a circuit length from boiler and back to the boiler of not more than 250 feet of 3/4-inch tubing. They can adjust that for different pump heads by using the charts similar to the above reference.
Just want to make sure I understand, not more than 250 feet from boiler and back. What if you are in a ranch home with 3 seperate zones of heating, and heating the domestic hot water also, and every zone call for heat at the same time, then you would be over 250 feet of 3/4" tube back and fourth to boiler from all the seperate zones for 1 circulator to push all the water thru all those zones at the same time. Does this mean you need multiple circulators for a ranch home? Or do I misunderstand?
