Questions & Answers

Will this work for a hot water gravity loop?

Im concerned about the flap being too heavy because there isn't much pressure differential.
Asked by: JoeDIY
Regarding vertical installation if the water is flowing up they can be installed this way. I have 2 installed this way working perfectly.

The small bolt started to leak after one day of operation. What happens if I tighten this bolt? Does it hinder the operation of the check valve if over tighten?
Asked by: Frankie
You should be able to tighten the plug, but make sure to take the line pressure off. JK is correct by telling you to remove and try to replace adding pipe sealant and teflon. The small plug is for the rod that holds the swing check in place.

The specifications mention it can be installed horizontally or vertically. I have it installed vertically and where the water should flow from high to lower elevations (and be stopped from traveling vertically up). However, when the system is pressurized, the pipes knock as the swing valve opens and closes as water is working to travel up the pipe. Is there an adjustment that needs to be made or can it only be installed in one direction vertically?
Asked by: Whose2Know
I know this post is a couple years old, but maybe it can help someone else. I believe you can only install a swing check vertically in one direction. In your application, I would get a spring loaded check valve.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It just works! I was given the task of replacing a balancing valve that quit working due to minerals, calcium and lime in the local water supply. In place of the balancing valve, I decided on a simple check valve to keep water flowing in one direction. This check valve had to meet certain requirements. It had to be designed to easily keep clear of mineral build-up, could be "exercised" regularly, installed with commonly available pipe sweating tools, able to withstand a continuous supply of 160F degree water and it's design so simple and basic that it left no doubt to it's proper operation. This check valve met all of those requirements. Installation was easy and it just works! The valve body is thick and well designed. The well-mounted flapper provides for a very good seal. Cleaning or inspection access is made possible with a generous sized threaded brass stopper. The valve is WOG rated. (Water, Oil, Gas) For the price, it cannot be beat!
