Water circulator pump for water to base board heat

Question

Hey Dominick good morning, thank you for alot of them very helpful videos on youtube, some of them saved my neck lol, ok heres the question I have a natural gas heating system in my home.. water to base board, that is heating the 2ND and 3RD floor of the house .. not worried about the first it has forced heating .. its a two family home. now it has pex pipe for the heat for the 2nd and 3rd floor. 3/4 size pex pipe. now my circulator pump is a Taco Model 007-bf5-j, HP 1/25 , amp.76 , Hz 60 ,volts 115, RPM 3250 , max pressure 125psi. I wanna know if this pump is good for shooting the water all the way up to the 3rd floor, because the 3rd floor gets warm but not as warm as it should be, and Im 100% sure there is no Air in the pipes after bleeding the whole system out an letting the water run threw the system for about 15 mins just to make sure no bubbles just an nice smooth stream… if that pump isnt good enough, what would you recommend? thank you Dominick, have a great day!

  1. yes I know , lol Air is the enemy, just one more thing the shity pump I have on the boiler now is a .76 amps, the taco 009 one I wanna install says its a 1.40 amps , will that burn out anything or it should be fine ?

  2. always. Make sure you bleed the shit out of the system.

  3. i will be switching that out, thanks you Dominick, Really Appeciate it have a good day

  4. I would say it’s a lot better than what you have now.

  5. Hi and thank you. If you’re sure there is no air you could try replacing the pump with a higher lift/run rating. Your pump may just be weak. However, depending on the design of your system, it may be just that way.

    How many zones do you have for the upstairs? ie. thermostats
