What is a Hot Water Recirculation System?

A hot water recirculating system is a plumbing network that moves aqua to each fixture quickly without having to wait for the H2O to get hot. Instead of relying on low H2O pressure, common in most water systems, a recirculating system moves water quickly from a water heater to all of your fixtures.

How does this system work?

Hot water recirculation pumps are great for older homes and new construction applications. When you want hot water fast, there is no better alternative. A recirculation pump can be retrofitted to work with your existing plumbing network, or we can run a new hot water/cold water line to each fixture during our new install.

This system nearly eliminates all wasted water, will save money, all while providing water at the right temperature to your fixtures quickly. With a recirculation system, a loop is created so water returns to the faucet first, instead of being stored back in a tank or drain line. As part of the process, we will need to install a pump sensor at the furthest fixture on your plumbing network and test each faucet to ensure there is no waiting for warm water.

In many Sacramento repiping applications, PEX piping provides the most advantages. Not to mention Polyethylene pipes are more environmentally friendly. Additionally copper is a conductor and wastes at least 15% more energy than plastic because of the heat lost on the way to your showerhead.

Conserve Water & Save on Energy Costs

Tired of waiting for hot water? If so, it’s time to call Sacramento Plumbing Solutions for a recirculation pump installation. Anytime you wait for 90 seconds before you step foot into a shower, the total volume of wasted water flowing down your drain adds up fast. The average showerhead in the United States uses over 2.1 gallons per minute otherwise known as GPM. This means that you are likely wasting up to 3 gallons of H2O before you step 1 foot into the shower. Certain low-flow water spray heads can reduce wasted water but there is still a waiting time that leads to inevitable water loss without a recirculation pump.

Furthermore, if you really want to maximize your overall savings (power, water, and gas), be sure to purchase a re-circ pump that has a timer, otherwise, your unit will consume power and run 24/7. Your untimed recirculation pump will draw around 80 watts an hour which equates to roughly 1,920 watts a day and upwards of 57,600 watts throughout 1 month.

Compatible with Most Water Heaters

If you are using a traditional tank-style water heater, installing a recirculation pump with a timer will save you the most money because it uses water and power more efficiently. Since most traditional tank water heaters use power and/or gas to constantly warm H2O, you will be eliminating that power draw from your plumbing equation. Aside from wasting less cold water, the gas and power savings will eventually pay for the cost of installing a new recirculation pump. Over time, the pump could actually make you money. Recirculation pumps are highly compatible and will fit in almost any kind of plumbing network regardless of what size or style of water tank you prefer.

In many Sacramento repiping applications, PEX piping provides the most advantages. Not to mention Polyethylene pipes are more environmentally friendly. Additionally copper is a conductor and wastes at least 15% more energy than plastic because of the heat lost on the way to your showerhead.
