I thought zone valves would be "good enough" but with a variable drive pump i dont see why "good enough" wouldnt be just right. How hard it is for setup/programming of these pumps?
Grundfos is big a leader in hydronic heating, not only on this continent but in EU and elsewhere. Taco is gaining more presence all the time. Neither one is going to allow themselves to fall on their faces by putting out junkie items.
The Grundfos ALPHA is a big hit over in the EU where electricity is expensive and hydronic heating is more popular than here in the US.
I installed an ALPHA on a growing experimental loop I have been tinkering with here.
There is nothing more than scrolling through some option menus to select what mode you desire.
