I bought this to pair with my Rheem tankless water heater. Installation was pretty straightforward and it was great that I was able to you plug in the power directly to the unit. There are two major problems with this, the first is that the fitting isn't good. No matter how tight or how much teflon I used, I cannot stop the leak. The second is that the pump is always running. The tankless water heater will not fire up all the time since it's has a setting for the recirculation pump, but still consumes energy running the pump 24/7. I returned the pump.

This is the first external circulation pump I have installed on a tankless water heater. It was easy to install with only minimal effort. Very quiet operation. My customer is very satisfied.

tankless smart outlet
snipped the cable and terminated into a plug so I could use a smart outlet. Now I can turn it on and off on a timer, but more importantly, I can automate it through google home, IFTT, and Stringify to automatically turn on and off after other events (like turning off TV lights when we go to bed)

    The installation and setup was easy. The wiring configurations for the electrical components were color coded, made programming the unit quick and easy. This particular item came preconfigured for easy plug in without having to splice wiring; although the wires were marked at the spot for customers who did not own a Rheem unit. The pump has two settings, performance and energy saving. Excellent compliment to the Rheem line of Tankless Water Heaters.

      Works well and easy to install as a dyi-er. For wiring, you can plug this directly into the heater but then it recirculates nearly every half an hour. That was an overkill for my purposes. I changed mine to a plug and plugged it into a smart WiFi controlled outlet. That allows me to program it to recirculate water when I wake up or when I need hot water.

        I originally bought a Rheem Tankless Water Heater from Home Depot. When I installed the water heater, the water was taking a long time to reach the furthest bathroom. As a result, I had to purchase and install this Rheem Timer Based Recirculation Pump. However, this recirculating pump did not automatically turn on when the water heater came on. Therefore, I then had to purchase and install a TACO timer to have this timer run continuously during most of the day even when hot water is not needed. Both the Rheem Tankless Water Heater and the Rheem Recirculation Pump fell far below my expectations. I was better off when I had a 55-gallon tank water heater. I would not recommend anyone purchase any Rheem products.

        Seems to work well with my Rheem EcoSense tankless and Grundfos point of use valves. The pump is on quite a bit. Interestingly, this installs on the COLD water side going into the unit which is not typical for other recirc pumps but somehow it gets the job done.

        Works Good - Must Have Right Instructions
        As another person commented, make sure you have the right directions with the date of 6/16 at the bottom. The one labeled 5/16 is not correct and won't work properly (at least in my case, water would only stay warm for about a minute). You can download the correct one from home depot's website up above. Besides that, pump seems to be working well.

          I installed this re circulation pump on my gas Richmond tankless water heater because last winter it froze and broke. The tankless unit is inside but the exhaust is vented out side. I live in Wisconsin where it is normal to get below zero with wind chills of 30-40 below. Cold air came down the vent and froze the heat exchanger. The recirculation pump solved the problem by turning on once an hour. It was easy. Ran a return loop and plugged it into the wire harness in heater. I have mine set to run about once an hour. The pump is quite and only runs for about 2 minutes. It turns on through a built in timer on the heater and turns off when the return line comes up to temperature. On the plus side I now have hot water quicker at my farthest away faucet. That is where I ran my loop. I do recommend installing a second check valve between the pump and cold water line. As a electrician I believe any do it yourself-er can put this in.

            No noticeable difference in quicker hot water to my kitchen sink. Seems about the same and based upon the cost of pump and plumber to install I would hesitate to recommend or do again.

            Pros - Easy connection to water heater unit & works as it is supposed to; paired with Rheem RTGH-95DVLN 9.5 gpm indoor direct vent natural gas Cons - Connections are not ideal. Had to stub copper to pex to provide adequate support as unit cannot be bolted to wall. Would prefer a union connection.

            This works great! Well worth the money for the luxury of having instant hot water at every fixture as well as not letting water and money run down the drain waiting for it to warm up.

            When I bought this pump I was under the impression that I would be able to set the times. I was wrong and in that this pump did not meet my needs. Also thought I was ordering a new pump, the one I received looked to be refurbished and repackaged. I have used this brand of pump before and would recommend it just be sure it will meet your needs.
