In you first post you stated that even with the return valve closed you still get no hot water.
What that tells me is you isolated the recir system and you are still having problems , so here's what you should do.
SULTINI - The main reason for me starting this thread was to determine if what i'm experiencing is normal or if I have a problem. From what you say it sounds like I have a problem. I guess I need to try and figure out how to troubleshoot it. All pipes are in the slab or walls so nothing is really exposed.

Thanks

tex Sounds like you got a problem but only can go by what we know without looking at your system and how it was Engineered.

You shouldn't need a recir system to get hot water, but only speculating.

Any other gizmos, for example an anti-scald system that commingles cold water with the hot, perhaps down near the water heater?
