WiFi thermostat with Weil Mclain boiler
Good evening guys. I'm trying to install a wi fi thermostat with my Weil Mclain boiler. I searched in the forums here to no vail. Any word on how to add a common wire for this boiler. I dont want a wal wart. Thanks.
Somewhere on or around your boiler there is a transformer. One terminal on the low voltage side is the common; the other is hot 24 volts. You need to identify which one is the common side and run your third wire from that to your thermostat.Br. Jamie, osb

If you tell us the model of the boiler, we can better lead you in the right direction. If oil fired, 1 zone with a triple aquastat, it will need a separate transformer and an isolation relay. Most gas fired boilers, atmospheric or mod con will have an internal transformer you can use or a zone control board.0
I hope that's what I need to show so you guys can help me with this task.
Here are some pictures of the boiler and water heater.0
OK. You don't have a common on the system that can be used. The low volt from the thermostat goes directly to TT on the burner primary. A switching relay like a Taco SR501 will need to be installed by a qualified tech.
On a side note, the boiler is rated at 2.00 GPH but I see on one service card the nozzle is 1.25 GPH. It's possible the pump pressure has been increased to bring it up but I would find out.0
