Hot water bypass stopped working
« on: October 15, 2021, 12:10 PM »
So went to winterize on the weekend and turned the valve on my 92 Sunflyer- it was still letting water into the tank so I pulled the valve and it did shut off- there is such a spaghetti pile of plumbing I cannot figure it out- can these valves go bad ? it is a ball type one

Ball valves normally work very well for a long time.  However, a particle of foreign matter can interfere with its operation. It may be only that. 

 Hm?

If your bypass has only one ball valve, it could be the check valve on the other end of the bypass hose that is not closing properly.
