    check valves

    They exist to keep the zone from gravity feeding and to help keep the water in the zone

    thanks

    does it matter if the check valves are above or below the water line and if they are before or after the purge valves

    check valves

    if the entire loop is below the water level are the check  valves necessary? also is it necessary to purge a loop that's below water level? if yes are two purge valves necessary or can the loop have a single purge valve and the boiler it self will function as the discharge valve? thanks
