Water Saver: Recirculating Pump Eliminates Water Waste

Water Saving Tip of the Week

Recirculating Pump Eliminates Water Waste

A residential Hot Water Recirculating Pump can keep water from being wasted while you wait for the tap to run hot. Using the bathroom faucet connections, these pumps circulate water back to the water heater until it reaches the right temperature (usually 120 degrees). Then the thermostat turns off the pump, and you have nothing but hot water and no waste.
