Check valve question.

The circulators I bought for my radiant heat redo have check valves in them. The flow of all three circulators is down (outlet on the bottom) is there any reason to keep the check valves in the circulators?
Thanks.

    Yes keep them in.
    It's helpful to others if you keep all your information on one post so everyone else can follow your project

    @DZoro I don't understand what you mean by keeping all my info on one post. If I have a different subject matter don't I need a new thread?
    Thanks for the answering my question.

    The checks are to prevent flow from one circuit from pushing into the ones that are off.

    You can choose to do what you want, but you cannot choose the consequences.

    You can ask away, in the same post. It's easier for everyone to follow along with the project. And help you out.
