Questions & Answers

can this pump be used with tankless hot water heaters?

Not recommended for tankless heater systems.

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.

Hot Water Recirculating System with Built-In Timer is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 579.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The quality was good, instructions easy, works as it says. Minor Con: Pay attention to instructi... The quality was good, instructions easy, works as it says. 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 4 out of 5 by from The recirculating system has most everything needed for the suggested installation connecting hot... The recirculating system has most everything needed for the suggested installation connecting hot and cold supply at the sink furtherest from the heater. However, I installed a dedicated return line instead, so that the cold tap would not received water from the hot tap. I also didn't want to risk failure of the plastic valve for which has been reported. Once I put a check valve in the return line the system works great. My return line connects in the attic above the sink resulting in hot water within five seconds to. Previously I had to run the tap for over a minute consuming 2.5 gallons of water before hot water arrived. The irony is that with the dedicated return path, the pump isn't totally necessary since convection maintains heated water in the line at all times. However, I suspect running the pump about 30 seconds before opening the tap delivers water that is immediately hotter than if I just rely on convection. Instead of setting the timer with guesses when I'll want hot water, I plugged the pump in to a Woods remotely controlled outlet (Model# 59743WD) and just switch it on when I need it.

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 It works as advertised. Installation was not as easy for... It works as advertised. Installation was not as easy for my situation as my water heater is in a tight spot and the location of the hot water outflow pipe made the installation of the pump and timer difficult. To install the pump so I could manipulate the timer easily, I had to turn it about 45 degrees semi-clockwise so the timer faced out. Doing so was not possible since the vent hood obstructed the pump, so I had to purchase and install additional parts (3 inch nipple and coupler) to raise the pump above the hood, thus allowing me to turn the pump timer to face outward. Once the pump was installed, the installation of the valve under the kitchen sink was pretty straightforward. The only thing I don't care for is what other folks have said, that the cold water is lukewarm and not cold. Even though some reviewers say to just run the cold water for a few seconds and it will get cold, for some reason my cold water takes 20 to 30 seconds for it to run cold, almost as long as it used to take to get hot water prior to the installation of the pump. Not a deal breaker, it's just that I used to like drinking cold water from the tap, not lukewarm water. So now I get my cold water from the refrigerator. Otherwise, the almost instant hot water is great! Just be aware of the cold water situation and the possibility that you may have to purchase additional parts depending on how your hot water tank is situated.

I do not see any additional cost in my electric bill and I run the pump 17 hours a day. I love it and I would buy it again. I don't use the built in timer I use a WEMO smart plug and program it from my iPhone. That way I have better control and can easily adjust when necessary or turn it off when I am not at home.

We loved everything about it except it taking so long for the water to get hot at the faucet. I found this product at Home Depot and thought it was too good to be true. I was wrong! This product was is great. It was a very easy installation and we were thrilled that we had hot water as soon as we turned on the faucet. Our wait time for hot water was cut from a minute and a half to 2 seconds. I knew that there were homes that had instant hot water but always thought they had to be plumbed for that at the time the house was built. The Watts hot water recirculating system uses the existing pipes in the house and returns the water to the water heater so there is no water loss. I installed this in my house a couple of weeks ago and am very satisfied with it.
