    Float valve will still open and close if you drop the pressure with a reducing valve. 50 ft

    lost through eva...

    put it back. It makes the water spin as it enters the ball cock. Why?? The engineers got bored

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!

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.
