    It had a spring and a small rubber ball (stopper). When the pressure exceeds the spring rate,
    it opens and allows water to pass. The white tube routes down to the pan drain hole, about 3
    inches down t...

    I fixed it. Maybe it's from south of the equator or where they drive on the left side of the
    road.

    one professional here saying anything positive about that or any liquid drain cleaner.

I tried replying to you on the forum, but I am not "permitted" to write a reply. Don't know why since I was able to post in the first place. Just wanted to thank you for your suggestions! Makes perfect sense. I don't know why the plumber who installed the system didn't put in that valve in the first place!

@mjz Inexperience along with the cost of material and labor is why they did not do it.

How do we get this fixed? I am unable to post - I wanted to include a photo of my current installation. It seems it should be easy to "reverse" the shutoff valve with the hose bib. In this way I would be able to isolate the loop, and then run hot water back through the loop out the hose bib and clear any air (if any...).

@Mr_David - I am unable to post in the forum for some reason. I was allowed to do the initial post (thanks for your reply!), but that's it. I want to post a picture so you can see how it looks currently.

I do suspect an air lock, but it's not 100% locked up. Water will flow through the loop, just painfully slow.
