    Q:

    I want to use this for a hot tub....so when I send 24volts to it it will open.....when the 24 volts shut off will this valve automatically close without power? and if it fails will it fail in the closed position?

      I am using this valve for the same purpose. The valve opens when energized,
      valve will close when not energized and should fail closed

      A:

      When you turn off the power, it goes back to the original position.
      It can fail in three ways, one is the motor could fail so it would never
      open. Two is the spring could break so it never closes. Three is
      something gets jammed in the valve (calcium, rust, etc.) and it either
      doesn't open all the way or doesn't close all the way.

      A:

      This valve is designed to flow the direction of the arrow normally (or as looking at it with the green unit at the top) flows from bottom to the right in the picture. It will stay that way until an applied 24V moves the "plunger" in the valve body to change the flow to straight (left to right in the picture) through.

    Q:

    I use a modulating boiler to heat 3 zones using taco sentry zones and one taco 0011-F4 pump. When one of the thermostats call for heat, the proper zone valve will open, then boiler and the taco pump start together. My concern is that when the thermostat is satisfied the zone valve(s) will close but the pump continues to run for about 30 additional seconds with no place to send the hot water. The pump is switched on and off by the boiler which I assume was designed to run the extra time to flush the heated water out of the boiler but it can't. Is this going to ruin my pump or boiler and do I need to redesign the system somehow? Thank you.

      A:

      You should have a time-delay (off-delay) relay to keep the zone valve
      open for the additional time the motor is on. This will allow the pump
      to cool the boiler before the zone valve closes.

      A:

      Here are my two suggestions:
      1) Add a bypass loop in the system that opens a valve that circulates
      right back to the boiler. This valve could be controlled by a multitude of
      sensors such as a flow sensor. Or you could add a couple electrical relays
      to the bypass valve that opens the valve when all other valves are closed
      and the pump is still running. This is probably the safest option because
      it was designed this way for a reason. It probably keeps circulating water
      to give the boiler time to shut down so the water doesn't have an
      opportunity to boil.
      2) A cheaper option would be to cut power to the pump using a relay that's
      controlled by the thermostats. This wouldn't be my first option.

      It takes about 30 seconds for the zone valve to fully close. It shouldn’t be a problem.

    Q:

    is the valve installation water flow direction dependant

      A:

      Yes, there's arrows cast into the metal sides showing the flow
      direction. If it's installed backwards, it may not completely shut off
      the unselected pipe since it uses the pressure to help seal it.

      Yes. This valve is designed for a specific flow direction.

      A:

      I guess the short answer is yes.
      The directional indicators on this valve are a little deciving. In the "Off" position. No power to the valve water will flow in from the bottom of the valve to the outlet port with the arrow poiting out. It would also flow in the opsit direction if you wanted.,
      Once power is sent to the valve the bottom port closes and water would travel in eaither direction through the two top ports.
      So no it is not direction dependant and yes it is. Depending on how you look at it. I hop this helped.
