If you have a hydronic system in your home, it’s important to be aware of the potential for fluid loss over time. Even small leaks can be difficult to detect and can cause the system to lose pressure, resulting in decreased efficiency. Valve stems, packing, flanges, air vents, and threaded joints are all common areas where leaks can occur.

To address this issue, many hydronic systems use glycol feeders or auto-fill valves to maintain fluid levels and system pressure. While auto-fill valves can be effective at replacing lost fluid and preserving the desired pressure in the system, they do have drawbacks.

One concern is that if a leak does occur, the auto-fill valve will continue to introduce water into the system, potentially adding foreign chemistry and diluting the glycol mixture. Additionally, auto-fill valves can cause increased wear and tear on hydronics systems by introducing additional water into the system, leading to corrosion and other issues over time.
