Product Overview

The TacoGenie delivers hot water to faucets and taps at your command, and can save the average family of 4 up to 12,000 Gal. per year. The TacoGenie is a small, silent pump that attaches to the hot and cold water lines in the cabinet under the most remote kitchen or bath fixture in the home. When the TacoGenie is activated, the cool water you normally let run down the drain is recirculated back to the water heater through the cold water line. When the hot water arrives at the faucet, the TacoGenie heat sensor and control board shut off the pump to prevent pumping excess hot water into the cold water line.
  • Standard plumbing and distance requires the TacoGenie to be installed between the hot and cold water line at the most distant hot water location
  • TacoGenie saves energy and water
  • You can look forward to over 15 years of life expectancy with a TacoGenie
  • TacoGenie includes: starter button, set of two 1/2 in. plumbing adapter tees, and set of two 1/2 in. stainless steel flex lines

I would have given it 5 stars butfor one thing. I had to substitute alternate T sections. That is because they assumed that the T sections would be universally the same. Maybe in their part of the world they are. I have the brand new unused T sections that came with the pump. The kit should include options for adapting the installation of the T sections. In my case they were 3/8 threaded pipe. There could be other types as well. IF my installation had matched the provided T pipes it would be SO SLICK and EASY. My advice is for TACO to add options for other pipe installations. MY advice to purchasers is to buy the kit knowing that it could cost you $100 additional to replace the provided T pipes.

I HAVE YET TO GET IT INSTALLED. After modifying my plumbing to fit the TacoGenie fittings, and installing the pump, I plugged it in and it did NOT function. I called Comfort Solutions for assistance and we determined that I had received a bad unit. I asked if they tested these units before shipment and they replied NO! I find this unacceptable. I now have to wait another 10-12 days to receive another 'untested' unit.

for 400 dollars plus the plumber at 150 bucks you can just turn on the water and let it run or press the button to start this unit and wait 5 minutes, but you still have to run the water to get the water hotter, i would try the motion sensor but it is so darn big 6x5x8 inches.I have no place to put it. I would get the unit with a timer on it and it is 100 bucks cheaper

    The Taco Genie pump operates quietly and effectively. But the Taco remote control range is limited to about 30 feet, not the 75 feet listed in its specification, which makes it almost useless.

    The pump was easy to install and came with everything neccessary. I really like this solution since it only circulates hot water when needed and avoided. My plan was to try it and if it worked, look into the remote units which I now plan to install next.

    The shower in our house took about 3 minutes for the hot water to get there. After researching, I decided to go with this unit. The actual plumbing part of the installation didn't look that bad, but the real headache was I didn't have a plug in under my sink. For that I had to hire an electrician to come in. And, being he had to tap off an existing outlet, there was the issue of water pipes, vent pipes, electric wires, and studs to drill through. I actually agreed to remove the mirror hanging over the sink so he could cut a hole in the wall to be able to drill. I had the stuff to repair holes in drywall anyway so it wasn't that big of a deal. But, if you are thinking of getting one of these pumps, take a look at what will be involved in putting an outlet under your sink. It may be a challenge. I decided to plumb it myself since it didn't look too complicated. My house has the 1/2 " inside diameter copper pipe, so it should be easy. The first thing I noticed that in the pump's directions, they show their model with the hot and cold pipes coming through the wall being separated by about a foot or more. My pipes were only a few inches apart. So then, the flex pipes they give you, one of them won't be long enough because they aren't THAT flexible. My solution was to go to Lowes and buy two elbows to install on the inlet and outlet of the pump. Now the flex pipes are more than long enough, plus you can put the pump closer to the edge of your cabinet. A couple words of warning. If you use elbows, be sure to use plenty of Teflon tape and make sure fittings are tight. I used pipe dope first and had to take things back apart because of a leak. Also, I'm not an expert working with copper pipe, but everything I researched on it say use new ferrels ( which I did) and don't over tighten. So, I hook everything up and turn on the water and I have several leaks. I tighten up the fittings on the leaks, which stopped some of them but not all. So, I had to shut water back off and take it all back apart. I couldn't get the ferrels off to put new ones on and didn't feel like going out and buying a puller, so I pipe doped around all the ferrels and put it back together and no leaks! I would recommend using the pipe dope around the ferrels from the start. Or, just hire a plumber to do the job. You also need to drill a hole somewhere to install the starter button. Easy. So now when I am ready for a shower, I push the button and the pump runs (VERY quiet) for about 2 minutes then shuts off. I then turn on the shower and within a few seconds, I have hot water! Yeah, it's a little pricey, with the pump at $405 plus the cost of an electrician and perhaps plumber, but I should have done this years ago. By the way, my water pipes run through my attic, so in the summer time, my water is already preheated, so I probably won't use the pump much when it's hot, but when it's cold, it's sweet!
