Here is a hand drawing of a simple loop to hook up a kit to a boiler.

Hi Tommy. I have a question on the hand drawing of a boiler and kit. You have the pump pushing cold water out of the boiler to the pellet stove and kit. Can You push hot water out of the pellet stove to the hot water tank frist and then to the boiler? Thanks.

The answer is yes
A pump MUST ALLWAYS push water thru the kit with nothing between the pump and the kit.In the hand drawing the pump is sucking from the boilers supply tank and pushing the water to the kits pipe with the chech valve going in to the kit .After the water comes out of the kit you may do what ever youn need to do with it.I show the hottest water being used first going thru a side arm heat exchanger on a water heater .Because most side arm heat exchangers only take out around 5 to 7 degrees to heat the water heater then you still should have plenty of energy left ( temp ) to go to your boiler or what ever.

Ok Tommy I understant now, but, can I install My pump near My pellet stove and pump water in to it? Or is it better to have the pump closer to the boiler? or does it matter as long as it pumps to the kit frist? Thanks.

I have seen pumps as far as forty feet from the kit ( as in the one you tube video of the guy with the dog grooming busines ) and I have seen them as close as 1 foot. ( as long as it pumps to the kit frist )
