Waiting for Hot Water is a common problem: turn on the faucet or shower for hot water, then wait for it to arrive. With this eco-friendly and patented Hot Water Lobster Instant Hot Water Valve in place, there’s no more wait. Instant hot water!
Waiting for hot water sends millions of gallons of cooled water down the drain each year. In fact, an average family wastes up to 17,000 gallons of water each year waiting for hot water.*
Installing this innovative new technology for your customer provides hot water re-circulation that saves water, saves energy, is convenient to use and easy to install (not requiring pipe cutting or electrical wiring). This system is typically used on retrofits but may also be installed on new construction. It consists of an eco-friendly temperature controlled thermal convection powered hot water re-circulation valve installed under the plumbing fixture farthest from the water heater. To save hot water, the system contains a sensor, which opens the valve only when the water temperature drops below the adjustable temperature setting providing faster hot water when you need it.

Prevent Your Pipes From Freezing
The best solution to preventing your pipes from freezing is to simply install innovative and patented technology known as a “Hot Water Lobster Instant Hot Water Valve” (is a breeze-no pipe cutting, soldering or electrical connections). It uses your existing water pipes and the thermal convection generated by your water heater to circulate the water back to your water heater for reheating (not requiring a pump or any electricity). These systems are temperature-controlled and are easily adjustable to meet your particular temperature needs. There is no water waste and it also reduces the energy required to heat your water while it provides instant hot water to your faucets and shower
