replacing a recirculating pump and non return valve on a hot water ring main on a commercial property

We we received a call from a semi commercial premises that had reported to us that they had no hot water in their kitchens or bathrooms.

After inspecting the system with found they had a hot water ring main with a recirculating pump which fed all of the fixtures.

I trace the whole hot water ring main out to make sure it was a complete loop, it was.

I found that the non return valve above the recirculating pump had completely worn out inside and was causing the recirculating pump to circulate in a loop causing it to finally fail

I replaced the recirculating pump and non return valve with a new one.
