    Zone actuators & zone valves

    I can't seem to picture this in my head. I'm trying to determine if I can use one manifold to supply heat to two zones. I was currently going to buy two 4 loop manifolds and power each one with their own zone valve, but if I'm able to purchase one eight loop manifold how would I hook up the zone valve with manifold actuators?

    Actuators

    in effect are zone valves for each loop . You would not need additional zone valves .
    You didn't get what you didn't pay for and it will never be what you thought it would

    As Rich said....

    You would have an actuator on each loop. ThatĀ  would beĀ 8 actuators and a big enough transformer to power them all.
    You would be better off going with 2 zone valves and 2 regular 4 hole manifolds.

    That's what I was thinking

    When does it make sense to use manifold actuators?

    When

    you have multiple zones in an area where only 1 manifold is desirable or possible .
