Wiring diagram of a circulator and aquastat

I am trying to put together an indirect storage tank. Not sure how to wire the circulator and the aquastat. The indirect tank is connected to a Weil Mclain oil fired steam boiler. Any help out there on wiring?

    Need more information? what kind of boiler? how is it piped? most mod con boilers and some conventional boilers have the controls built in.

    It is a steam oil fired boiler.

    You have a steam boiler with a tankless built in water heater and you want to pipe the tankless heater in the boiler to the storage tank? Is it an indirect with a heat exchanger in it or just a storage tank to give you more capacity? I kinda don't quite know what your intentions are.

    To use a circulator to move water and have it governed by an aquastat, you will need a 24 V transformer, a relay and a 110 volt connection to the transformer and relay. I will give you a verbal explanation.

    You need 110 V connection to the primary side of the transformer. The secondary 24 V, one lead is connected to the aquastat terminal and from the aquastat's other terminal a lead goes to the coil terminal or wire on the relay and a lead goes from the other coil terminal or wire to the other lead on the transformer. That's the low voltage circuit. When the points in the aquastat close power will go to the relay coil, closing the points that carry 110 V to the circulator.

    The circulator--You need 110 V to the circulator. One lead from the 110 V, usually the black wire is connected to the point in a SPST relay and a lead from the other point on the relay goes to the pump wire. The other lead from the 110 V usually the white wire is connected to the other lead in the pump.

    When the relay points close, 110 V goes from the voltage source thru the points in the relay to the pump. That the high voltage circuit.

    Be sure and have a ground wire from the the 110 V grounding to the pump. That's the grounding circuit.

    You could use a simple Fan Center that has a transformer and relay on it.

    Isn't there a combination control with the aquastat, circulator relay, and control transformer all in one control that is commonly used for hot water boilers but will work for this as well?

    What you want is a line voltage aquastat? Having the aquastat turning on or off the circulator? You can try the following:
