Want an efficient way to get hot water instantly without wasting water?
Here are two solutions that can help.
Hot Water Recirculation Pumps
A hot water recirculation pump provides hot water without wasting water. When hot water is needed, the recirculation pump installed at the fixture purges the water line of cold water and diverts it back into the cold water supply. So, cold water that would typically be wasted while waiting for hot water to arrive is recirculated back into the system, saving you money on your water bill.
- Installation takes an hour or less
- Uses little or no energy (depending on model)
- Saves up to 16,000 gallons of water per year
- 30-month warranty
Whenever you turn on the faucet to wash dishes or take a shower, you are mixing hot and cold water.
A mixing valve performs the same function, but it does so at the water heater instead of at the faucet. Because the mixing valve is mounted at the water heater, hot water meets cold water right as it leaves the hot water tank, and less hot water is removed from the tank to achieve a desired temperature.
- Increases hot water storage capacity without increasing tank size
- Works with electric or gas water heaters
- Makes water temperature safe, even when running water heater at max temperature
