Zone valve wiring

I need some laymens terms for a zone valve hook up. I put my own unpressurised hydronic heating system for an outdoor boiler. Because the circulator runs constant on the furnace it pushes hot water through my zones. I have decided to use zone valves to stop this unnecesaary heating. My circulators are hookeds to thermostats that are hooked to honeywell transformers (seperate one for each zone). Is ther any way to hook the two yellow and two red to these so I canopen the valve when the circulator turns on? I am general in electrical have done many things but please answer as if I am a blonde and explain things such as end switch etc. Thanks

If you put Check-valves at the T-stat controlled circulators,... It's stop the ghost heating your gettin'....

I bought Groundfos pump with built-in check-valves...
