Great forum!
My first question also.
I am the maintenance director of a nursing home/ assisted living facility.

My problem is this: It concerns the mixing valve and recirculation line for the domestic hot water. The mixing valve is set for 115 degrees F. If the water is running nearby and water is flowing through the mixing valve the temp gauge reads 115 but if there is no water running the temp gauge starts to climb until it hits around 130. I cant have that slug of hot water going through the pipes to an elderly resident and getting burned. I replaced the mixg. valve and the recirc. pump but still get the same problem. I need to get this fixed ASAP. If you need more info to help solve the problem let me know. Thanks.

Get a good PLUMBER NOW!


Then report yourself to your supervisor for putting their entire company at legal risk.


Oh, and this site is for plumbers only.

Imagine That!
Shoulda pulled the name of the place from him before shutting him down...
They probably had a staff plumber before they laid him off to save a few bucks...

We just had the state take over a nursing home corp. here...
Freaking crooks!:furious:
