So I never got the hydrostat into program mode. I ran the zr and zc and turned everything on. The circulators do not come on until the low limit has been surpassed. The boiler runs up to high limit and shuts off. If the zones are on and drag the temp at the boiler down below low limit the circulators shut off until boiler temp comes up. this all seems to make sense to me so.... I guess I’ll run it! Just using it for hot water right now. I will buy a couple more of the inkbirds and use those for controls if they prove to be reliable for stoker don. I will be watching on utube.
Thanks for all the great feedback!!!!

Sounds like it's working correctly, congrats!

Looks like your 3150 defaults to using TT or ZC/ZR, whichever is connected. Hydrolevel does have a history of changing capabilities of existing models. My model 3250 has had fixed differential temps and adjustable diffential temps and all they did was change the manual. Makes it tough to help people when you're not sure which sub-model you're talking about!

Hi Cdawg, I installed a 260 last year and copied Don's Inkbird setup and they worked great!

I definitely plan to try out the inkbirds. The s130 has been running great for a little more than a week just heating hot water. Still on the first hopper. I had an outfire Sunday and one last night so I may need some adjustments. So far still very happy.
