Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JustMeInputting With a PEX manifold one of these valves is needed at each faucet. Not the fault of the product. I have had to replace these every 13 months or so because they stop working. Warranty is only 1 year. This gets expensive. The only one that I really care about working is the kitchen because without this my new Maytag dishwasher runs for about 10 hours on any cycle. This is due to new government regulations which make the wash water temperature a minimum for cleaning the dishes. It appears less expensive to keep replacing the valve than pay the electric for the dishwasher to heat the water for each empty and refill (which is about 10 times)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hot What a joy it is to turn on the faucet and get warm water immediately. The valve kit was added to what was supplied by the Hot Water Recirculating pump kit that we had already purchased. I can't believe that we waited so long to put this system in. We also used this as a teaching tool for our 14 year old grandson. Under our supervision he installed everything. It is very easy to do.
We live in California and are suffering a multi-year drought. Think of all the water we are saving.

Plumber said it would not work, I needed to put in extra water lines to get a true circulation system. I put in the pump and two sensor valve kits and it does what I wanted. I have warm water when I turn it on and hot very quickly.

The hot water recirculating Valve was an add on for the other end of the house and works beautifully. Recommend this product. Installation was a breeze. Home Depot online was very helpful. Product arrived in 3 business days

The first valve worked 18 months, the next two about a year each. I am now ordering a third valve. What a waste of money. The cost for hot water is getting expensive.

It appears to be what I needed, I have not, as of yet, installed it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beavertail Works by itself! No need for the pump!
I had installed a pump and valve a month ago. Put a thermal couple on the hot water copper pipe to monitor the temperature. As I was testing the system, I discovered, with the pump completely OFF, natural convection when the valve is open upstairs, will cause the water to recirculate naturally! It works by itself without the pump running on the hot water tank.
The pump is actually quite useless as it doesn't seem to push up the temperature quickly. Sometimes it even pushes the temperature down. I am wondering if the pump was pumping backward. I figure I had a faulty pump. Exchanged one and yet to test the new one out.
The bottom line is, this valve is a great product. Save yourself some money, don't buy the pump/valve combination, just the valve. You will get hot water (95F) naturally without any electricity cost!!!
