"Always in hot water!"
SAVE WATER! At ONLY $179.95, the eco friendly Hot Water Lobster Instant Hot Water Valve provides
faster hot water which
saves water, saves energy and saves time.  How long does it take for hot water
to get to your faucet or shower?  A lot of precious water is wasted down the drain while waiting for hot
water.  Even worse is the cost to heat the cold replacement water, which enters your house at the cold
ground temperature.

HOW IT WORKS! When the water in your hot water pipe and the Hot Water Lobster control valve cools
below the user adjustable temperature (77-140 F. degrees), the thermal materials within the
Hot
Water Lobster
control valve contract and silently open the valve.  Thermal convection within your hot
water tank (differential of pressure between the top of the tank and the bottom of the tank) naturally
circulates the cooled water through your existing cold water pipes and back to    the hot water tank for
reheating.  Your existing hot water tank now uses less energy reheating the warm water instead of
cold ground temperature water.  When fresh hot water enters your hot water pipe and reaches the
Hot
Water Lobster
control valve, the valve automatically closes.  This maintains hot water at the control
valve without wasting water or wasting energy.  Turn on your faucet or shower; and you get instant hot
water instead of wasting it down the drain!  Installing the
Hot Water Lobster instant hot water control
valve at the fixture furthest from your hot water tank (as shown in the installation diagram) will provide
faster hot water to all of the fixtures in your house.

NO ELECTRICITY NECESSARY! The Hot Water Lobster is all mechanical and designed to provide an
electricity free solution to maintain hot water at the tap.  This makes installation a snap (less than 10
minutes).  Other hot water solutions require the use of electricity and pumps that make installation
difficult and the pumps are often noisy and wear out in 2-4 years.

MORE HOT WATER! Adds as much as 10% more capacity to your current hot water system (by
keeping the water in your hot water pipes hot!).

KEEP PIPES FROM FREEZING!     The Hot Water Lobster instant hot water valve automatically allows
water in your pipes to circulate when the control valve cools below the set temperature (even when
your electricity goes out).

REDUCES CONDENSATION! The Hot Water Lobster instant hot water valve reduces condensation on
pipes and toilets basins.

MAINTENANCE FREE! The Hot Water Lobster has a solid brass valve body with an adjustable thermal
controlled stainless steel valve stem enclosed in a mounting box.

EASY INSTALLATION! The Hot Water Lobster comes complete with the mounting box, 4 sets  of 12"
flexible water lines and standard brass fitting.  All pre-assembled and tested for an easy 10-minute
installation

STATISTICS! *A typical family wastes approximately 12,000-17,000 gallons of water annually waiting
for warm water to reach the tap.                 
*as determined by GAMA (Gas Appliance Manufactures Association)

Note: Circulation of water by thermal convection must not be restricted (no check-valves) between the
water heater tank  and the Hot Water Lobster Instant Hot Water Valve.

         What's New In Hot Water Recirculation Systems?

Modern homes come equipped with a hot and cold water system. Most hot water
heaters have a tank of water that they keep hot so that there will be hot water available
for use. The problem is that when the hot water is left in the pipes, it cools. This is why
your hot water faucet or shower has to run the cooled water out of the pipes before hot
water arrives. This not only wastes water down the drain, it also wastes energy required
to heat the cold (ground temperature) water that replaces the water hot water in your
tank type water heater.  

Hot water recirculation is designed to get around the problem of having to wait for hot
water, which causes the average household to waste over 17,000 gallons of water
every year as it runs down the drain. Water recirculation systems keep a constant
supply of hot water in the pipes, circulating the water back to the water heater so that
when the hot water faucet is turned on, it's actual hot water that comes out. There are
currently two methods for installing a recirculation system, and though one is more
expensive than the other, both work equally well.

One type of hot water recirculation uses a dedicated line. This means that there is a
pipe in the plumbing systems whose express purpose is to take water from the regular
pipes back to the water heater so that the water can be reheated. This type of system
is usually expensive, especially if the house is already built and has to be retrofit.

The other type of hot water recirculation uses your existing cold water line as a return
line to take water back to the water heater so that the water can be reheated. This type
of system is much less expensive and is a great “Do It Yourself” project.

Installing a new innovative eco-friendly and patented technology known as a
“temperature controlled hot water recirculating 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). To save hot water and
save energy, these hot water recirculating systems have a temperature-controlled
valve that allows the consumer to easily adjust the temperature to meet their particular
needs. There is no water waste as it reduces the energy required to heat your water
while it provides faster hot water to all your faucets and showers for better water
conservation.

Reasons to install a Hot Water Lobster Instant Hot Water Valve:

  •   Saves thousands of gallons of water by not running it down the drain!
  •   Get your hot water faster from your current water heater!
  •   Save time, energy and money while living a more “green” lifestyle.
  •   Eco-friendly!
  •   Aids in preventing pipe freeze.
  •   Only $179.99! (Plus Shipping & Handling)
  •   30-day MONEY BACK GUARANTEE
  •   10-Year WARRANTY
  •   Brass Valve with Stainless Steel Stem.
  •   Easy installation! (no pipe cutting, soldering or electrical connections required).
  •   Shipped completely assembled with flexible water lines.
  •   Works with or without a dedicated hot water return line.
  •   When you turn on your faucet you've got instant hot water!

Eliminating that wasted water saves you thousands of gallons of water every year. A
typical family of 4 can save over 17,000 gallons of water per year! By not running that
water down the drain you are reducing the amount of sewage that needs to be treated
as well!
