    Hey all, just prepping for my install and figuring out some of the wiring.

    Recap (seen here also) I am installing a wall-mount Burnham Alpine to a single zone (for now) and also installing a Burnham Alliance indirect to supply the home. The indirect is not wired as a zone, but it's own pump.

    Most of it the wiring seems simple (I think) but when I get to the indirect to the boiler, I'm a little confused. I've attached a sketch of what I think my wiring setup will be, without connecting the indirect. I was under the assumption that I wire the boiler, which feeds the pump(s) power. The zone valve from my zone and the aquastat from the indirect let the boiler know when there is a call for heat. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    If that's the case, I am confused as to why that Burnham's Alliance manual is showing a line feeding the indirect with power. Shouldn't the boiler itself instruct the pump to kick on when the aquastat calls for heat from the indirect?

    Could someone instruct me how to wire this indirect. T.I.A.

    Higher resolution seen here (http://goo.gl/JMAjKe)

    Could this be the solution?
