Flo-Chek 1-1/4 in. Forced Hot Water Heater Circulator Valve

$7497 /each

Product Overview

Taco Flo-Cheks are used in a forced hot water heating system to prevent gravity circulation during periods when the boiler is hot but the space heating zone is not wanted. This makes it possible for the use of the heating boiler to maintain domestic hot water year round. In systems with multiple circulator zones, Flo-Cheks allow heat to flow only into the zones that are calling for heat.

how does this valve help give you more and quicker hot water from your water heater in the garage to your kitchen and bathroom sinks?
Asked by: dwathom
This valve has nothing to do with potable hot water. It is for a closed loop hyrdonic heating system. There is no application where it would be applicable to your question.

Customer Reviews

Flo-Chek 1-1/4 in. Forced Hot Water Heater Circulator Valve is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Taco Flo-cheks with Taco Circulators w/ Integral Flo-Cheks Solved Our Gravity Flow Problem! Gravity flow problem solved when the Taco flo-chek combined with two Taco circulators with integral flo-chek (IFC) were added to the supply lines of the original system's two parallel loops and single return for each zone, respectively, in our converted gravity system after a second zone was added to our system. The orignal system was a gravity system with two parallel loops that had a single circulator added when the boiler was replaced. It worked really well for three years. A contractor added a second zone without any isolation and this caused a serious gravity flow issue through the original radiator system even after two circulators with IFC's were added. To solve the problem, we added Taco Flo-Cheks on the two supply lines to the original gravity based system. Both zones now work flawlessly in combination with a Taco Three-zone Switching Relay (SR503).
