The largest use of electricity in most cities and municipalities is supplying and cleaning water! About 75 percent of the water we use in our homes is used in the bathroom. For example, about five gallons to seven gallons of water is used with every flush! A leaky toilet can waste more than 10,000 gallons of water a year. A faucet that leaks enough water to fill a soda bottle every 30 minutes will waste 2,192 gallons of water a year.
Water heaters account for nearly 25% of the energy use in homes. So using less hot water such as taking shorter showers or installing a hot water recirculation system can save the average home over 17,000 gallons of hot water each year.
An innovative and patented technology known as a “temperature controlled hot water recirculating valve” (is a breeze to install-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 showers.
