|In response to Re: Getting instant hot water at all sinks/showers|
Laing and Grundfos both make the system. It is not 100% perfect since the sensors will stop the circulation when the temperature gets to about 100 degrees to prevent the cold water line from filling with hot water. But they do give the hot water faster. Which faucets will get the hot water faster will depend on how the hot water is piped, since only the faucets on the line between the water heater and the pump will benefit.
: Saw an advertisement in a magazine a few years back about a system that could be connected between hot and cold lines feeding a sink or shower. As I recall the system had a small electric pump with temperature sensor. When turned on the pump would move water from the hot water line to the cold water line. This in effect created a recirc system from the HWT hot water out line and back in through the cold water feed line. This maintained hot water at the sink no matter how far it was from the HWT (I hate running water down the drain waiting for it to get warm/hot).
: Does anyone monitoring this group know where I can find this system if it is being marketed as a complete package?
