    Fill valves

    The best place to locate your fill valve is between your extrol tank and your tie in point just put in a 1/2 tee and add your fill there, its known as the point of no presure change, see the picture below look at the tank and right above it is the point,

    thank you

    thank you, that pic is great, I think I will end up doing exactly the same thing and be done with the issue. Two side notes, I like Dr Pepper too! :)



    Also why does it look like I dont see the drain flow line coming out of the backflow preventer?

    I See

    the Dr. Pepper, but I can't see the Maxwell House. I'm a Smithwick's guy, it's OK I was in the garage at home.

    We normally

    pipe the feed into boiler return pipe . You can purge the zones with hot water and know they're all done easier . And if you're closing the PRV down after purging ( with a LWCO ) , the placement of the valve is not critical .
