You can put the fill anyplace -- just be sure to use a back flow preventor and a pressure reducing valve with a fast fill option

Again - you can do what ever you want but this is not the best place. See page 32 on the link I provided

which way does the circulator push water ? through the boiler and up to the radiators or does it pull from the boiler then up to the radiators?
