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: bklyn
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.

can this pump be used with tankless hot water heaters?

Asked by: GeorgeM1
Not needed for tankless water heaters. You will get hot water just as fast with a tankless water heater if not faster.

Hot Water Recirculating System with Built-In Timer is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 506.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why wait? The fastest way to a hot shower. I heard about recirculating hot water systems years ago and assumed it was a "luxury" item that would cost thousands to upgrade my current plumbing. So, for the past 10 years, I lived with the fact that it took a long time for my shower to warm up. I would turn on my shower and then go do some other task, like make breakfast, cut the lawn, or watch a movie... and then, by the time I got back, it was nice and warm. Waiting for the water to warm up seemed like an eternity, like waiting for water to boil, or watching paint dry. Before installing this product, I timed how long it took for my shower to warm up. It took about a minute and 9 seconds. (I always assumed it was more like 5 minutes). After completing the installation, it only takes about 20 seconds... about the time it takes to disrobe. Not too bad. Highly recommend, not only for convenience and water savings, but to start each day without disdain.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from warm water every time So helpful to have warm water everything time I want to wash my hand while cooking. My hot water tank is so far from my kitchen, I used to waste 4 litres of water before warm water would arrive in the tap. Not very helpful when cooking. The only drawback is the cold tap is not cold initially as the cold line is used to recirculated the hot water. I have a cold waterline to the fridge, so not a problem for me. Instant hot showers, and hot water to the bathrooms just wonderful. Would recommend this unit.

Our last house had a return line and a pump so we were spoiled with instant hot water. Needed to find a solution for our new house and in doing research I found the Watts Recirculating System which sounded almost too good to be true. Happy to report this system works like a charm, is easy to install, set the timer and forget. Problem solved! This product can be handled by a DIY'er and took me about 15 minutes to install. Super happy and highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Concetpt - Simple Yet Effective Just installed this unit a day ago and it is working perfectly. It took me about an hour and a half to install. Very straight forward and easy. In fact, when I removed the original nipple from the outlet of the water heater I discovered it had a lot of mineral build up which has now help improve the water flow. I like most people was frustrated watching precious water go down the drain waiting for it to get hot. I just learned about these products a few weeks ago from a radio home improvement guy. The concept and design is so simple yet effective that I don't know why all houses aren't built with these. Or, at least all new water heaters should already have one installed on them. To any contractors out there that either build houses or install water heaters, don't assume your customers know about these. Do yourself and your customers a favor and let them know about these recirculators. I suspect you'll end up selling a lot more of them. In these days of water rationing especially here in the Southwest and in California. This is a simple, effective and cheap way to save water and some money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good for some installations I've had this system installed and in use for about four years. The most important feature is the use of the cold water return to the heating tank. A cross-over valve is used at the destination to return the heated water to the cool side and back to the water heating tank. This has the great advantage of eliminating a dedicated return pipe. No walls have to be opened and in many houses this avoids a prohibitive cost. But this does degrade performance a bit. Instead of waiting for hot water for the shower for 2-3 minutes, as I previously had to do, warm enough water arrives in a few seconds. A dedicated return line would sense low water temperature at the heater and more evenly supply hot water at the shower or faucet. Water temperature does fluctuate for the first minute or two, but it is an acceptable tradeoff. There is some heating of the cold water but running the water for only perhaps 3 seconds clears that. Not much of a problem there. The pump is very quiet and reliable and you can set it to supply heated water during desired hours only. Overall I'd say this unit meets the requirements for good performance in some situations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well and easy to install Once I understood that the pump and valve went at different points in the hot water system (pump goes at the water heater and the plastic valve at the farthest point in the hot/cold water system) the install was much easier. Make sure you read the manual first. The timer setting is easy - if you've read the directions. Typical for most men, I didn't bother and just fiddled with the timer. It would have saved me a few minutes to read the instructions. Watch that you have a 120 volt outlet near the pump. If you do, insure you put the pump close enough to reach with the cord. The people at HD were helpful. I needed some help with the right plumbing fittings. I got the "Shark" brand connectors. They needed no soldering. They do cost a bit more, but they were easy to install. Make sure you get some Teflon tape for the threaded fittings on the pump. So far, we're happy and would recommend this pump. The pump comes on just before we get up and goes off at bedtime. No more wasted water or washing hands with 50 degree water! Our home is Flagstaff and the cold water (in the winter) is 45 to 50 degrees.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast hot water! Just installed this to replace an older model that lasted about 18 years. An easy installation that brings hot water in about 10 seconds instead of a minute or more. Definitely saves a lot of water and time. The minor negatives not issues for me. Yes, when you want cold water it is lukewarm for about 10 secs. But in kitchen we get cold water for drinking and cooking filtered from the fridge. Bathrooms you usually want hot or warm water. Saw a You Tube video showing a fancy way to insert water lines with T connections, running line under floor between water heater and sink. Need plumbing skills for that setup! Said negatives of this pump is that it uses power (minimal and can set timer to just have it run when needed. If you want fancier timer there’s a YouTube video where it’s plugged into an outlet controlled by a smartphone app motion detector). Also pointed out that if there is sentiment in the water heater that will be circulated too. Haven’t noticed that problem, but I live in an area with great tap water. And I have a high quality brand water heater. Basic maintenance for tank water heater is to drain and flush it at least once a year anyway. If you live in an area with hard water or more sentiment in your water you should do this more often. Plenty of YouTube videos on how to do it. So this circulation pump is a big winner at my house!
