I've tried to sketch what I currently have in place (I've left off neutral and ground wires for ease). Can you point me in the right direction on the diagram. The squares with 2 dots are supposed to represent the terminal blocks!!
Then, ultimately, the other side of the relay contacts needs to go to the two brown wires in your diagram. With a live on that point the corresponding valve opens, and when it opens the pump and boiler turns on.
In the short term, the heating control relay needs to switch the red wire which goes to the hall stat.
You'll also need to disconnect the corresponding wires from the programmer (basically your two relays are replacing the switch contacts which are in the programmer)
Think my brain has thawed and that's making sense - before I implement, can I just confirm my understanding...the no entry sign represents me capping off the wires with a terminal block.
