Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

What you seem to be describing is gravity circulation, hot water is lighter than colder water so it rises to the high point in the system where it cools off them falls back to the system low point. There should be a check valve/flow check that stops this action. The check is probably leaking by.
