Air Scoop direction on a hot water heating system


Hi All,

I just had a new hot water heating system installed in my home and noticed that the arrow on the air scoop above the expansion tank is pointing in the opposite direction of the water flow. Although there doesn't appear to be any problems with the system so far, it's been running well for about a month now, is this acceptable?

Thanks.

If this is something you recently paid to have installed, I'd make them come back and fix it.

Depends on the air scoop. Some are designed that if you install them backwards. The water flow isn't slowed long enough for them to work right. Others, it makes no difference.
