How To Get Instant Hot Water Using Your Current Water Heater

Instant Hot Water

Everyone wants Instant Hot Water.  I mean, who want to turn on a faucet and let it run for minutes before getting any hot water?  Many choose to invest in a whole new tankless water heater system for that sole function.  Not only is that unnecessary, but there is a more practical solution for instant hot water.

Instant Hot Water

Instant Hot Water Recirculating Pump

This is where a hot water recirculating system comes in.  Using a water recirculating pump provides instant hot water to faucets and showers when needed.  Not only do you get hot water fast, but you stop wasting so much water waiting for hot water to arrive.

Did you know that the average household wastes 11,000 gallons of water a year by letting the water run down the drain until it gets hot enough to use?

How It Works

If you have a conventional storage type tank water heater at home, hot water is sent from the heater to your faucet or shower.  When you turn off the faucet, water remains in the pipes where it cools.  When you turn on the faucet again you get the cool water that remained in the pipes instead of the hot water you are expecting.  If your faucet or shower is far away from the water heater, your wait for hot water will be longer.

When you install a water heater circulating pump, the water that remains in the pipes when the faucet is off is sent back to the water heater thru the cold line making sure hot water is always available. Hot water is there when you need it.


Installation of a hot water recirculating pump can be installed right now with your existing water heater.  For more information regarding instant hot water recirculating pumps, call us today at 1(858) 366-8735
