Questions & Answers

Will this work with a tankless hot water heater?

Does the cold water get warm when the cold valve is open?

Thanks, Geneo
Asked by: Geneo
Yes, this does push water that is in the 'hot water line', which has cooled down, into the cold line. It shuts off at something like 85 or 90 degrees, so the cold water line does not get 'hot', but 'lukewarm'. When you start the cold water, it flushes quickly to cold.

Does this unit come with a push button switch to turn it on when desired?

Asked by: Marcus
It does come with a switch so you can manually turn it on but it's very inconvenient if you mount your pump under the sink like I do. I don't like to use the built-in timer because I don't always know when I need the hot water. What I've done is to rig up an external switch to turn it on. The trick though is that you have to keep the power on for a few minutes. I used a fan switch with a countdown timer so when I hit the button, the "fan" or pump turns on for a set amount of time. The drawback is that don't have instant hot water but if you hit the button upon entering the bathroom and take care of business, the water will be warm very soon.

Will it work for a two story house

Asked by: Isaac
It should. It does not care what floor it is on. It is under sink mount. You must have a plug in within a reasonable distance from mount.

Undersink Instant Hot Water Circulating System is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 318.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from The hot water circulating pump has been a great addition to our house's plumbing system. For our ... The hot water circulating pump has been a great addition to our house's plumbing system. For our bathroom it used to take several minutes of wasting water to receive hot water, whereas now it is available instantly at our sink and within 10 seconds for the shower. We use the timer to have the pump run a few hours in the AM and from late afternoon through the evening, and this has worked well. The pump makes a low-level humming sound when running, and also makes a different sound occasionally when not running and faucets are used in the bathroom or elsewhere in the house. Neither sounds is objectionable and is unnoticeable to most everyone but me! The most challenging part of the installation was installing the outlet under the sink. Mounting and hooking up the plumbing (be sure to get the 2 extra lines needed) took only a few minutes. My only issue with the pump is it seemingly arrived with two vanes broken on the pump rotor. I heard what sounded like pebbles inside the pump when I first turned it on, but thought this could be air bubbles and didn't think much of it. On the second day the pump stopped working and on exploring the problem I found the broken rotor and loose pieces of the vanes (see photo) that I removed. Since then the pump has been working well for a couple of months even with the damaged rotor. I like the effect of the pump so much I do not want to return it and wait for a replacement. I looked online and found a third party that sells the rotors, but these cost around $80.00, and not worth the cost for the current situation, in my opinion. Even with the compromised rotor issue, I still highly recommend this product to anyone who has to wait more that a few seconds for hot water to arrive.

Wow, what a relief it is when you make a purchase from the good reviews and it turns out to be better that expected! We finished our basement and had issues with not getting hot water within 90 seconds or more to two bathrooms and a bar sink. I installed this circulating system and not only did it correct the basement problem, it made the main floor (of a ranch style home) more balanced with hot water flow. My water values were low so I was able to stand the unit upright on the floor of the under sink cabinet. I also was then able to use 12" 3/8 in. Compression x 1/2 in. Braided Polymer Faucet Connector instead of a 16". Longer connectors may be needed if the values are higher.

It is quiet and does the job really well. I got almost instant hot water at my kitchen sink now, which is very far from the boiler. So, now I almost don't waste water waiting for the hot one to start. But there are several issues with it. 1. What you see in the order is not the same model as comes in. It looks different from the picture. 2. Cold water is now too warm, which is really good for winter, since my kitchen is above the cold garage, so, no fear of pipes freezing. But it might be not so good for summer. I might have to shut it then, or look into scheduling some other way. 3. Not sure yet how that will affect my electrical and gas bill. Need more time.

The first pump I received was defective--there were chips broken off of the fins of the pump--but Home Depot express shipped a replacement. The pump works well. Be aware that it provides instant warm water and not instant hot water. This is how it is designed since it stops pumping at 98 degrees. It is perfect for washing hands or taking a shower but it will be a minute or 2 before the water is hot. Also, the cold will be warm for a minute or 2 since the pump pushes warm water into the cold line. However, overall it works as claimed and I am happy with the result. The alternative would be to run another line from the hot water line from the end of the line back to the hot water heater and putting a constantly running pump there. For me that would have required a plumber and for many would not be possible in an existing home.

Can hardly hear it running in cabinet under sink. Waiting a couple of months to see if there is actually going to be a water use savings. I have 2 1/2 years of water bills on a spread sheet so I figure in a month or two I can tell if there is going to be a savings. Even if it is not much it is nice to have warmer water very quick in our bathroom.

I have it hooked up to my home automation system so we activate the pump ~ 10 minutes we want to take a shower and hot water is ready! It is a pretty small pump, which is good because it takes less space and uses little energy but on the other hand, it takes 10 - 12 minutes to get the hot water to the farthest faucet. We are pretty happy with it.

I would rather have hot water, then to wait 70 seconds to get hot water. The energy consumption is very little. I leave it on all the time, witch comes on at the preset temperature to keep it tempered at around 90 degrees . I don't mind the cold side has to be run 5 seconds before I get cold water. No more waiting.
