I didn't really know what to shoot. The last one is of the 'bad' zone. As you can see, the returns are off. So now we don't have heat at al in those zone. We had a plumber do the original piping. The HVAC folks said it was piped incorrectly and redid the connection from boiler to our water heater. If you want me to shoot something else, just let me know. thanks.

Here's my reply to everyones' helpful comments. I found our house records from the plumber. He said that he connected the heat from this new addition to the existing feed and return and to a thermostat, basically on the other side of the 1st floor. We got new flow valves before we knew this. Also, our repair man said that the system was piped wrong- something about the flow going the wrong way-. So the thermostats (3 on first flow) kind of turn on different rooms, whether you want them on or not. We can stop the heat going into the zones we didn't want heated by not turning the thermostats on at all. Any thermostat can trigger the zone we were crazed about. But thank you everyone for your input. I showed them all to my repair man!
