Do You Need a Hot Water Recirculation System?

Ensuring That You Get Hot Water on time

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. However, 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: traditional and instantaneous. The classic style uses a dedicated return line that runs from the furthest fixture back to the water heater. There’s a re-circulating pump that draws that water back into the 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 furthest from the water heater. With this type, you’ll need access to power under the sink to run the pump.
