Questions & Answers

I have had this installed but I am getting too much warm water out of my cold faucets. How do I adjust so cold comes out the cold faucets?

Asked by: Frustrated
If the pump stopped pumping once hot water reached the sink this wouldn't be a problem. These systems utilize a Normally Open thermostatic valve that closes only after 94F water contacts the valve. Once closed the valve won't open until heat loss occurs in the hot water pipe dropping the temperature below the valves specified temperature. This results in 93F water entering your cold water line at the same rate at which heat is being lost through convection in your hot water lines. There is a video on youtube showing that's normal to wait as much as 80 seconds for cold water at taps which have these valves installed.

DO I REALLY NEED THE PUMP OR WILL JUST THE SENSOR VALVE DO THE TRICK

lF I UNDERSTAND THE PUMP ONLY INCREASES THE PRESSURE.
Asked by: BKLYNDOG
I think the fellow who indicated "convection" has a point. In an instance where the hot water is required, say a kitchen sink, is higher in elevation than the hot water heater and they are directly connected by the addition of a dedicated line back to the water heater, then water should flow through the circuit due to thermal convection. Cold water is more dense than hot water and would like to flow downwards while at the same time the hot water would tend to rise. The resulting differential in pressure is very low and dependent on the height difference between the two points and the pressure drop through the pipe. Thus the efficiency of this would be increased by a greater height difference and larger supply and return lines.

Does this unit heat up the water in the toilets?

I was wondering if this unit causes issues with warm water in toilets?
Asked by: luckydog777
There's nothing wrong with having some warm water in the toilet tank. It will keep the tank from sweating in the winter, if you're in a cold climate.

Hot Water Recirculating System with Built-In Timer is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 356.

The base connection almost fooled my plumber. But then my plumber is not the brightest Bob. It’s one of those situations where you either tighten it first while you have full clearance with a large wrench but must estimate the proper direction it’ll face, or tighten it last with his favorite mini Channel-Locks. He did the latter. Leaked at first, but fixed / retightened okay. Now working beautifully. The undersink parts I did myself no problem. I’ve further have it plugged into a smart outlet. So now I turn it on remotely from bedside just 15 minutes before needed — because my schedule is not regular. Ready for winter.

I used this with a dedicated recirculation loop, so all I needed was the pump. I really like the timer capability. So far so good. My only issue - why does a pump cost half as much as my new water heater? I was hoping these would be in the <$100 range. The exact replacement for the pump model I had before was well over $200. I chose to go with the Watts because of the convenience of purchasing from HD and the ability to connect it to the water heater outlet.

Minor Con: Pay attention to instructions though, if there is more than 1 loop of piping in your house you will need to buy another valve kit, no big deal really, but you need to get it if you want the full benefits of have almost instant warm water at all locations. Benefit: I ended up turning my water heater temperature way down because the pipes stayed warm allowing the water (when used) to not dissipate as much heat, those cold pipes (I have copper) make a huge impact on the water temperature when it reaches the fixture. Minor Con: I did lose pressure in 2 sinks and a shower after hooking up the unit. Turns out that the recirculating of the water must have kicked-up a lot of debris which got caught in the smaller orifices and screens. I just disconnected them and blew them out. Now my pressure is much greater than before, so it needed to get done regardless. No reason not to have one of these, especially if you are waiting more than 20 seconds for warm water.

This is used on your hot water system when the water at the furthest hot water tap/faucet takes a minute or two to get hot. Installation is easy if you follow the instructions and you have worked on your plumbing before. If you are not too sure then please use the services of a licensed plumber, not a Handyman (in Texas) as the hot water line from the water heater has to be taken apart. You also need a 110v supply next to the pump location to be able to power the pump. No electrical supply is needed in the bathroom. How it worked on my system was not quite what I expected as now instead of drawing of the hot water to get the water hot enough to use, I now fine myself drawing off the cold water as it is warm and not fun to brush your teeth with!! On the whole, I like it and the wife loves it, as at her lavatory sink the hot and the cold water do not mix.

It is truly wonderful to be able to wash your hands in warm/hot water without having to wait. This pump really does the job. For easier install get slip on connector mentioned below, easy install with no waiting for cure time. "SharkBite 3/4 in. Push-to-Connect x 3/4 in. FIP x 15 in. Braided Stainless Steel Water Heater Connector" I had to add an additional connection under the sink on the other side of the house. One thing to be aware of is that the connection under the sink will emit a fairly quiet water flowing noise. The first time I heard it, I thought a toilet was running.

With the hot water heater on one side of the house and the kitchen on the other we were running a great deal of water down the drain in order to get hot water to wash dishes. I was surprised how quickly the Watts system changed this. It is an easy install and we now have hot, hot, hot water in a matter of seconds. I VERY much recommend Watts Hot Water Recirculating System.

It was fairly easy to install and is working very well. I no longer need to waste a lot of water to get my shower water warm enough to jump in. I am quite satisfied with the product.

Awesome to have hot water right out of the tap in the morning...no waiting or wasting water while it runs to the correct temperature. Had contractor installed, took about an hour. Quiet, don't know it is there! Get one, you will love it!
