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

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sonny Money saver?
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!!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Scott It works, but not exactly as advertised.
The product is reasonably easy to install. It works fine for the master bathroom where the sensor valve is installed, and which is the most distant hot water fixture in the house. It does not help at all in the guest bathroom or the kitchen which is a major let down since it advertises that one unit will provide instant hot water throughout the house. Our sensor valve has lasted almost 2 years, but now the system is not working at all. Looks like I will need to buy a new sensor or 3 if I want the hot water back.

After many years of trouble free service with my Watts hot water recirculating system, I found myself having to troubleshoot the system due to the lack of quick hot water. After determining that the valve was to blame for this failure I then looked on the Internet and found that the best price was Home Depot and paid for the quick shipping. The installation was simply disconnecting the 4 hoses and replacing the valve and reconnecting the hoses. I am now a happy camper with quick hot water again!
