    circulator placement

    I just had a new heating system installed (Triangle Tube, prestige 175) with a smart 50 domestic water heat exchanger. The drawing in the manual does not agree with what has been installed.

    Here a drawing of what has been installed

    boiler------------------------------------pump-->boiler
    | | | |
    pump | pump |
    | | | |
    V | V |
    heat exchanger radiators

    Here a drawing of what the manual says:

    boiler-----------pump---------------------------->boiler
    | | | |
    pump pump | |
    | | | |
    | V | |
    | radiators |
    V |
    -------heat exchanger-------

    Does anybody know if this make any difference? Is any of these arrangements better than the other? Should I be concerned that the installer did not follow the manual?

    Nicer drawing

    My drawing looked so nice in the message window before submission.

    Next and hopefully final try at drawing

    My drawings in the text window are obviously not working, here I am attaching the drawings.

    Here a drawing of what has been installed and of what is in the manual are attached.

    I like the

    your second drawing where you are showing the indirect as your buffer tank in line with the primary loop. then it shows a space heating loop as a secondary loop. Classic primary/secondary type piping using the tank as the high temp load while either stepping down or injecting with the secondary loop.
