How a hot water recirculating pump works
In a typical plumbing system, hot water is sent from the water heater to a faucet. When the latter is shut off, the water cools down inside the pipes. When you need hot water again, you’re back to waiting all over again.
With a hot water recirculating pump, that cooled-down water is sent back to the water heater for reheating. At the same time, a small amount of hot water is steadily being pumped throughout your plumbing system from your water heater and back again…the very thing that provides instant how water.
Recirculating pump benefits
