Question about Taco 006-BC4 Cartridge Circulator Pump, 1/40 HP, Bronze, 1/2" Sweat C

Open Question

Why is there a leak at the Taco Circulator?

For a two week vacation, we shut off water to the house and put water heater on vacation mode. After returning, we woke up to big leak from the piping entering/exiting the Taco Circulator. Leak stops when we closed valves on either side. No hot water pressure now.

SOURCE: NO HOT WATER ON OTHER SIDE OF HOUSE

All of the white pegs on the outside of the dial are on and off times. If they are pushed out they are on and pushed toward the center is off. You want to set those for the times you would usually used hot water. There is a white arrow on the face. You want to rotate the face clockwise until the time of day is infront of the arrow to set the time. Last but not least there is a switch on the right side of the dial it has three settings, on off and timer. If you set it to the clock the pump will turn on and off at the times that were selected on the face. You can also turn it to the constant on position and it will run constantly. I would suggest flipping it to constant on and wait a few minutes to see if it fixes your hot water problems. If not the pump might be bad.

I cannot figure out why my hot water no longer gets hot. I unplugged my timer 3 years ago and never had a problem. Now, no hot water unless timer is on and circulating.


Best solution is to remove the circulation-system crossover located under sink and see if problem is solved.
After removing crossover piece, try hot water tap.
Another way to check if this is the problem: Turn off cold water shut-off located above water heater. No need to turn off power or gas to water heater. Now, no water should flow when you turn on hot water tap because hot is turned off.
Open hot water side of double handled faucet. If water still comes out the hot side, then crossover is the problem.

After removing Taco crossover, you can still have the problem if a single handled faucet has the same type of crossover issue.
Repeat test to see if water comes out of hot side when water to water heater is shut off.
If water still comes out of hot side, then put ear against each single handled faucet and see which one has sound of moving water. That will narrow down the suspects.
