DO I REALLY NEED THE PUMP OR WILL JUST THE SENSOR VALVE DO THE TRICK

Asked by bklyndog May 25, 2014

I’ll answer this 6 years late for those who are wondering. The pump is needed to cycle the water through the closed system. When the system is closed, the water has nowhere to go that has lower pressure (i.e. the tap) so it wouldn’t move without the pump. The pump pushes the previously hot water back into the cold side near the tap, bringing hot up to the tap.

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?

I figured this would be an issue when I installed my system several years ago. My plumbing is under the house and easily accessed, so I ran a dedicated return line back to the water heater. There is no wait for hot or cold at any of the taps. Well worth it. Will be installing the same setup this week for my sister. Using pex this time so install should be quick.

can this pump be used with tankless hot water heaters?

can i use this on my tankless water heater and install it under sink

Does this unit heat up the water in the toilets?

depends on what your goal is!! if you are wanting to keep the cold water line feed warmer for a non freeze in cold areas of the country.. then yes!! if you are trying to keep the water in the tank from freezing... you are better off using a surface tank heater on the outside of the tank to keep the tank warm... I have seen these pumps used in several cool systems that they were not designed for!!

Is this installed at the water heater?

Asked by Stan January 2, 2018

Answers

Yes. The motor is installed at the hot side of the tank and the sensor is installed at your farthest sink or where you want almost instant hot water. I have mine running all the time, as my plumbing is in the concrete foundation. Love it!

Do I need a separate return line to the water heater?

Asked by Unhandyman April 14, 2015

Answers

No, the manifold allows for the return through the cold water line.

How loud is it and how much electrical energy does it take?

Asked by mattie1621 December 28, 2016

Answers

Watts web site shows the operation cost at less than 5 cents per day. Or if you Google search and find out the power usage of this pump in KW (kilowatts), then you can use your electrical cost in your area (from your electrical bill) to calculate the cost per day. Should be very low.

Nope you just need 1 unit of the entire house you place the valve on the furthest bathroom sink from the heater.

Can the pump effect water pressure.

Does the pump affect the water flow to faucet when pump is not running?

is it possible to use more than one valve on separate ends of the house?

Answers

I'm not sure it will add value or increase performance. This pump should be placed at the FURTHEST faucet location (from your water heater). It then will circulate hot water throughout the ENTIRE hot water loop in your home.

Great product solved a problem.
Customer review from homedepot.ca logo
We have a run of about 80 ft. to get from our water heater to our unsuite sink and shower. We now just turn on either tap and have hot water in mere seconds instead of 2 minutes. Amazing and easy to install with just watching a video.

I am glad that I bought this pump and had it installed. It gives hot water faster to the furtherest point in the kitchen faucet. The only thing it seems like the cold water is s little slower. The built in timer makes so you can set it for when you don't need it. I have only had it about 6 weeks. It should save water and energy over time.

I had always been under the impression you need your home to be specially plumbed to allow for recirculating hot water. Surprise! I was getting ready to replace a 9-year-old 40 gallon water heater and was contemplating going tankless. Our biggest complaint with our current plumbing is that it takes FOREVER to get hot water in the kitchen and I hate wasting water waiting for it to get hot. I realized a tankless system wouldn't solve this problem and somehow stumbled onto this product during my research. Our water heater is in a dedicated indoor closet so a tankless system wouldn't necessarily save us any space. I bought the least expensive Rheem 40-gallon water heater and the Watts pump. Together they cost less than a tankless system and installation took just minutes. It's brilliant! The only *small* downside is that if you want to get a cool glass of water from the kitchen or bathroom faucet, it takes a moment to flush out the hot water. No big deal.

I bought product as new and was lazy to go local store, so I ordered it delivered to my home. There was no mail box for it,just the original box with a mail sticker. Just a few pieces of paper as padding to handle rough shipment. Fortunately it is not damaged, but upon careful inspection I believe it was a customer return, the timer had been set. I got everything ready to go, so I installed it anyway. It works as expected, there is a little humming when the pump is running. It is obviously louder than a Taco 007 bump on my boiler, on which I need to feel slight the vibration to confirm it is running and no audible sound. But the setup is in basement, so it is still OK. I am not sure the reason why the previous buyer returned it and it is still OK to buy a returned product. But at least it should be labeled as OPEN BOX, or refurbished, Not as new.
