Description for Taco 223-5


For more than 40 years, designers and installers have used Taco Flo-Cheks in forced hot water heating systems to prevent (gravity circulation during periods when the boiler is hot, but the space heating zone is not wanted. This makes it possible to use the heating boiler to maintain domestic hot water year-round. You can also use Flo-Cheks in systems with multiple circulator zones to allow heat to flow only into the zones that are calling for heat. In addition, the thumb screw can be opened manually for gravity feed applications, if the main circulator stops operating.
Features Include:
Automatically Opens When Circulator Starts Running Cast Iron, Universal Body or Bronze Sweat-In Configuration
125 PSI Maximum Operating Pressure (862 kPa)
277 degrees F Maximum Operating Temperature (136 degrees C)

    Q:

    Can these be installed on the return side of a hydronic system, or must they be on the supply side?

      A:

      Hi, I suppose these can be installed on the return side of an hydronic system. I had lots of problems with this check valve rusting on me and then not working. I would recommend the brass ones instead which are rated for potable water. These rusted on me withing a year and the brass ones I have had installed about a year and a half and are still working well. Kyle

    Q:

    System is older. 3 zones on forced hot water system. Pumps r on return line. When basement heat calls, water is slowly going to top floor supply. They have flow check on supplies, should I replace flow check?

      A:

      We would think that the flow check's weight is stuck and just needs to be adjusted.

    Q:

    My taco 218 is leaking a little up around the threaded cap and has corrosion around where water is weeping. What should I do ?
    Asked on 1/1/2012 by Jerry from Whitinsville, MA

    • A:

      You should cut off the water supply, remove the cap and clean the threads with a wire brush, wrap the threads with Teflon tape and put the cap back on. This should stop your weeping water.

    Q:

    I need more heat. Which way show the thumb screw be?: Tightened all the way in. or back out? Would I be able to turn the thumb screw to far out. Oh I have a TACO 220 universal flochek. thank you

      A:

      Backing out the thumb screw will give you the most flow. There is a stop point on the screw that will not allow you to take it all the way out.
