Connecting second zone relay
 
2 Attachment(s)
I am adding a second zone (and zone control relay) to my boiler. I am wondering if it is safe to "piggy-back" the feed from one zone controller to the other, it'd make the wires much easier to run.

Here are a couple diagrams of the current single controller, and how I plan to piggy-back off of it to send a hot feed to my second controller. I left all the low voltage off the diagram.

I can split the feed before the controller and run a hot to each, but it would be more difficult.

Thanks.
