Do You Need a Hot Water Recirculation System?

Ensuring That You Get Hot Water in a Timely Manner

Does this happen at your house? You turn on the shower or the bathroom sink and the water is frigid, even though you opened the hot water spigot. A half a minute later, you’re still waiting for hot water. It’s not that uncommon, especially in an old house with an old plumbing system. But there’s a way to combat that—with a hot water recirculation system.

What Is a Hot Water Recirculation System?

There are two types of hot water recirculation systems: the traditional style and systems that provide instant hot water recirculation. The traditional style uses a dedicated return line that runs from the furthest fixture back to the hot water heater. There’s a re-circulating pump that draws that water back into the hot water heater, essentially creating a loop. The loop keeps water continually moving through the house, so that there’s always hot water at any tap.

The instant hot water recirculation system comes in a variety of models. The over-the-water-heater style has a pump above the water heater and a check valve under the fixture that’s farthest away. The pump creates pressure, which pushes hot water into the cold water system, thereby creating a loop. There’s also an “under-the-sink” version, which is installed at the fixture farthest from the hot water heater. With this type, you’ll need access to power under the sink to run the pump.
