  1. I have a large home hot-water system: two boilers & 6 zones. As installed, the zones are each powered by a TACO 007-F5 pump. The system is nearly 20 years old and a couple of pumps have failed. Is there any advantage (or is it even possible!) to substitute with the slightly more energy efficient 005?

    • Jim,

      20 years is good enough for a circulator. The difference in performance of the 005 and 007 models is not very significant and considering the availability and the cost, it probably makes more sense to stick with what you have. If you under size the circulator, it actually might put more stress on the system and reduce the life span of the pump.
      After digging some websites, it looks like the price difference between the 007 and 005 is around $5-10 bucks, but the 007 model sure is the more popular.
      Here’s some back to back price comparison:
