Closely spaced tees on primary loop
 
There is a picture of the closely spaced tees at the following location:

Can the following closely spaced tees work as well? Nothing else is changed except for the "Tee" configuration. Be sure to 'zoom' the following picture bigger when viewing it.

Answer to my own post: hydraulic separation
 
I was thinking of paths of least resistance when laying out the the secondary loop system returns coming back into the primary boiler loop.

I looked at http://www.phpinc.us/index.php?actio..._id=1183487865 and bothe the Caleffi Hydrolink and Caleffi Idronics .

The key is having the secondary loop flow having the least effect on primary loop flow. So my layout idea on photobucket would definitely be the wrong way to go, as it would not hydraulically separate the primary and secondary flow of hot water.
