Hi Lads.

I'm working on a large house and we need to tap into the secondary hot water pipe to extend it to the new part of the house. Silly question but I have never had to T in more than once and was checking this would be okay to do.

I would go back to where the secondary pump is and tee it in there with some lockshield gate valves on both so you can balance the system

remember it needs to be copper or mlcp and insulated

Not going to be able to get to the plant room, I was thinking of putting a gate valve on each Return if possible to balance it.
Yes aware of it needing to be mlcp or copper.

Thanks
