How Hot Water Recirculation Systems Work

     Now you can have hot water in 15-30 seconds (depending on the size of the home and water system) without wasting a single drop and by using only a fraction of a penny's worth of electricity.  The MetlundŽ Hot Water D'MANDŽ System (a high performance pump, integrated controller and electronic zone valve)requires no special plumbing. It is designed for use with any hot water heating system to provide energy and water savings. It's easy to install in new or existing homes or businesses.  Savings of energy and water, plus extending the life of water heaters, has a significant return on investment. Federal regulations require the use of low flow fixtures (1˝ gallon restrictors on fixtures and 2˝ gallon restrictors on showers). Since eight out of ten homes have long waits for hot water at one or more fixtures, it is easy to see the added convenience and cost savings of instant hot water delivery.

     The hot water supply line in your home carries hot water from the water heater to the various sinks and baths throughout the house.  In a home without recirculation, when you turn on a hot water faucet, all the water sitting in the supply lines has to pass through the pipes before hot water from the tank reaches the faucet. As a result, gallons of water are wasted while waiting for hot water to arrive.     By running a return line from the last tap on the hot water supply line back to the water heater and installing a small circulating pump, hot water is circulated in the supply line and is immediately available when you turn on your faucet. The direction of flow moves from the water heater through the hot water supply line, through the return line, through the recirculating pump, and then back to the water heater.
