Recirculate Your Water and Save

Recirculating Hot Water System Savings in water consumption and energy efficiency can be realized when using a recirculating hot water system.

Savings depend on how the system is controlled and used.

  • With the use of a pump and creating a return loop, hot water is delivered at all fixtures within 10-15 seconds.
  • To attain maximum efficiency, system is controlled by the use of a timer. Engaging the pump during peak usage.
  • Should be considered in your home if obtaining hot water at any fixture exceeds one minute.
