New-patented technology makes it easy to install economical devices to provide instant hot water for all your faucets and showers. This new technology 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 hot water recirculation systems have a temperature-controlled valve that allows the consumer to easily adjust the temperature control knob to meet their particular needs. There is no water waste, and it also minimizes energy waste since it only re-circulates water when the hot water at your faucet cools below your desired temperature. Installation is a simple DIY 15-minute project (not requiring any pipe cutting, soldering or electrical connections).
Installing just one of these units in the proper location can save thousands of gallons of water a year. Most homes and buildings are plumbed in series (pipes running from one fixture, to the next fixture, to the next room…). Installing the patented instant hot water valve on (or near) the last fixture in your home will provide faster hot water to all the fixtures along the plumbing run (known as a plumbing loop). In the event you home or building has more than one plumbing loop, it is likely that you will need to place an instant hot water valve at (or near) the end of each additional plumbing loop. Since the instant hot water valve uses your existing cold water lines as the return line, a separate (or dedicated) return line is not necessary, so installation has really been simplified.
Beyond saving money on water bills and helping to save the environment by not wasting as much water, these instant hot water valves have other benefits. If you live in an area where it drops well below freezing, the instant water valve circulates the tepid water, which prevent pipe freezing. The circulating tepid water also helps reduce condensation build up on pipes and toilet basins. It also reduces condensation on pipes and toilets, which can corrode them over time.
As new-technology evolves (simplifying installation) there is a strong demand for these instant hot water valves by everyone who not only wants to preserving our environment by saving water and energy, but also wants to save money on their cost.
