Works Great on Radiant System
I installed this with 3 zone radiant system using a navion combi boiler, couldn't be happier, pump varies from 12, 29, 42 watts of power depending on how many zones are calling. 42 watts is the max power the unit will draw. I didn't have to do much setup, the unit worked right out of the box. Only comment is watch out the small leads off the pump to the temperature sensors must be connected in the correct order! Watch the pictures carefully in the instructions. I installed a duplicate system in another home and had issues until I figured this was the problem! I actually bought the pumps from another supplier because Pex universe didn't offer this until now. I did buy everything else I needed from Pex universe.
Impressive product Taco! So easy to set it. Just one thing to mention- it is little loud with this ECM motor. If near bedroom may hear it during night. During day-no way.
This works great for floor heat designs. Make sure to order the flange kits with the pump.

It's a standard flange, with 3-1/8" (3.125") OC (on center) hole distance. It works with all the flanges and flange isolation valves we carry.
