The Benefits of a Recirculating Pump in Water Heating Systems:

If you consider the average home that takes four showers per day that can add
up to thousands of gallons per year! That is a lot of money. The reason why this
happens is because in a typical plumbing of a home, water is plumbed from the
water heater through the pipes to the tap. Once the tap is shut off, the water
remaining in the pipes cools down, and this is the reason why you have to wait
for the hot water to come in. A recirculating pump can help eliminate this
problem. It can be installed in a new home or even retrofitted in an existing
home. This is called a retrofit-by-pass. This system uses the cold water supply
line as the return line to the water heater. A circulator pump is used to create a
pressure differential that allows the cold and cool water in the hot water supply
line to “by-pass” (at low volume) into the cold supply line through a patented
thermostatically controlled valve that is mounted under the sink furthest from
the water heater.

hot water through the pipes form the heater to the furthest fixture. Therefore
the water in the pipes is always hot and no water is wasted during the wait. Our
clients who have them are delighted that they no longer have to wait for the hot

especially important in Florida, where there are water restrictions. Hot water
recirculation is a cost-effective method of controlling any additional waste of
water. Everyone wants to help our environment in some way!
