Setting Up Tado with UFH and Radiators with Vaillant Combi Boiler.
Hoping someone can help me here... I'm a pretty capable individual with DIY having done a few home renovations myself... however when it comes to this Tado system (which I have already purchased...) I'm kind of in limbo on how to set this up...
Setup thus far.
Boiler = Combi - Vaillant.
I have a 6 way manifold with pump and 6 x tado Smart Radiator valves (1 for each zone) setup and ready to plumb into the main lines of the combi boilers central heating loop.
Each smart radiator valve (on the manifold) will control a zone (room) that will have a wireless temperature senor (paired respectively with its smart radiator valve on the manifold) the temperature sensor in each room will be set as primary temperature sensor too.
I have 4 additional radiators upstairs with Tado smart radiator valves already installed. These will be set to be the primary temperature sensors for their respective rooms.
everything is wireless
What I need help with:
I was told that in order for the UFH manifold to NOT become a bypass for the rest of the central heating upstairs... I need to install a 2 port valve RATHER than what I have put in place 22mm ball valves...(my understanding is... the 2 port valve is required so that the valve only opens when ANY of the wireless temperature sensors for the UFH in the rooms downstairs call for heating, to allow heat to start flowing to the UFH manifold pump to then flow to the respective room that called the heat.
How do I wire up BOTH a 2 port valve AND the Manifold pump so that the tado system controls
- When the UFH manifold pump is turned on or off.
- When the 2 port valve is open or closed when heating is called for by ANY of the downstairs room Tado Temperature sensors.
what will instruct UFH manifold pump to stop?
Is the assumption that I need a 2 Port valve correct?
Really appreciate help from anyone who can guide this humbled Tado new comer... show me the LIGHT!
Many thanks in advance
