Hot Water Recirculator Pumps

Go Green with Instant Hot Water Heating


  • Installing a hot water recirculator pump is the easiest way to conserve 16,000 gallons of water a year and save time and energy costs in the process. Running your faucet for five minutes before hot water reaches it, has wasted as much energy as lighting a 60-watt light bulb for 14 hours. Installation takes about one hour and requires no additional electrical wiring under the sink.  The pump itself plugs in to a typical electrical outlet in the water heater area.

  • The hot water is pumped from the water heater through the hot water pipes to the faucet. Once the faucet is turned off, the water that is left in the pipes cools down.  Turning on the hot water means waiting for the cool water in the pipe to be run out making room for new hot water.  The 2-3 gallons of water it takes to get hot water flowing at the faucet wastes precious drinking water and adds to the cost of treating the waste water left behind.  In a growing community, this could require adding additional waste water treatment plants, resulting in a higher cost of living.

  • The Grundfos Comfort Series Instant Hot Water System, is a great solution to the problem.  We attach a low flow pump on the hot water pipes at the water heater and add a thermal bypass valve at the farthest plumbing fixture from the heater.  This allows hot water to circulate through the pipes keeping hot water available instantly, and uses no more energy than a 25 watt light bulb.  The pump also includes a timer to program the pump to run during the peak times your family uses hot water and turn off while everyone is away from home.
