HUGH the Ducky: The Advantages of a Constant Run with the Heat Source

HUGH the Ducky takes the techno babble out of in-floor heating

Keep the loop pumps on continuous run:

It will circulate water all the time and keeps floor temps constant, even out the floor temperature, even when floor temps may be influenced by solar gain or leaky doors.

How do you set the pumps to constant flow? Run a little wire from R to W (on the thermostat wiring plug) on one of the zones to make the control think the thermostat is always on. Assign all floor pumps to that zone. Then set the heat source pump (usually pump 10) to the same zone as your thermostat.
