So you turn on the hot water in the sink, and you wait. And you wait. You put your fingers in the water to test the temperature and they get numb from the cold. You wait some more. Ahhh…. ……Finally! A little bit of warm water starts coming through, and then it gets hot after that. Who has not been there before!
On the average, a home wastes around 29 gallons of water a day waiting for hot water. That’s more than 10,000 gallons a year! The average wait is a minute, which is longer than it sounds. When you total up the expenses of water waste and sewer charges, the typical home pours approximately $120 down the drain waiting for hot water.
Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be that way. With a hot water recirculation pump you can skip the waiting, enjoy hot water immediately,
How a Hot Water Recirculation Pump Works:
Hot water recirculation pumps work by generating a continuous flow of hot water in your home’s hot water supply line. Systems are available for existing homes and new homes. For an existing home, a retrofit system will work with your cold water line at three points – pipe, pump, and valve – to create a return line. For new construction homes, a dedicated return line is installed and then a circulator pump where the return line meets the hot water heater.
There are Three Big Benefits to Hot Water Recirculation Pumps:
1. Savings. Sending rivers of clean water down your drain every year simply isn’t cost-effective. A hot water recirculation system cuts back on water usage, which means savings on your water bill.
