New system monitoring, guages, etc

Robert_H Member Posts: 141
What do you like us see installed in a systems plumbing for monitoring; temp sensors pressure gauges etc.?

The system is a Mod con feeding mostly cast rads with one radiant ceiling.

Pri/Sec with as system manifold on the secondary loop  that feeds each rad (home run) and also feeds the ceiling manifold.

The Ceiling manifold has supply and return temp gauges and flow meters.

The sec circulator is Bumble Bee and it can monitor GPM

    How much info

    Do you want, and how accurate? At the very least system pressure. Most mod cons have a lot of info available fro the control temperatures, fan speed, etc,.

    Don't put too much faith I those pump gpm readings, regardless of the brand. When measured against lab quality certified meters errors of 40% were recorded

    Temperature gauges on mixed temperature zones can be handy for commissioning and troubleshooting. Same with flow meters on the loops.

    Thanks Hotrod

    I want to make sure I have the sensors necessary to do any system troubleshooting if there is a failure. Also if the design needs any tweaks, we can get the information from the system.

    a system preasure guage sound like a good idea.
