1. Connect the Taco 3196 Differential Bypass valve between the supply and return lines of the system as shown in the typical installation diagram. Be sure to install with the flow arrow in the correct direction, flowing from the supply to the return.
2. Turn adjustment indicator all the way clockwise until it stops.
3. Refill, purge and restart the heating system. Once the system is up and running at normal operating temperature it is
time to set the differential bypass valve.
4. Make sure all zone valves are open and calling for heat. One way to accomplish this is to turn all thermostats up to
their maximum temperature settings.
6. Once an increase in temperature is felt on the
outlet side of the bypass valve stop turning
counterclockwise, this temperature rise indicates there is now flow through the valve.
WARNING: The pipe may become extremely
hot very quickly once the valve opens.

velocity as zones close.
8. Return thermostats to preferred temperature
settings.
