Plumbing


I have purchased a new condo and the hot water is supplied by the building (natural gaz water heater). In my unit there is a valve to control the return of hot water in the pipes which is installed in the main bathroom but this valve is far from the other faucets specially the kitchen sink. When we want to use hot water in the kitchen or the dish washer the water is cold. Could the check valve be installed under the kitchen sink. The valve installed is the model with a cold water connection on one side.

Hope this picture will help in answering my question. The valve is now installed in the main bath room. Could it be moved under the kitchen sink. This way it would prevent the hot water from flowing back in the pipes.
