Why consider a hot water recirculating system?
We live in an era of instant gratification. We hardly wait for anything anymore, and when we do, it’s usually not for long. But there’s still one thing that usually requires a wait: hot water. Did you wait for the shower to warm up this morning? Most of us did…anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes.
Many seem to simply accept the wait as a fact of life, and let all that good water go down the drain. But there is a better way—with Grundfos®, you get hot water without the wait!
Without a hot water recirculating system, unused hot water in the line cools and must be evacuated before hot water from your hot water heater can reach your shower, kitchen, and bathroom sinks. As a result, gallons of water are wasted—and that’s not just wasted water, that’s wasted money and wasted time.
But you don’t have to take it anymore. Hot water recirculation delivers the comfort and convenience of instant hot water that should be expected. The system is installed on your hot water heater to help pull “recycled” water back to the hot water heater to be reheated and recirculated. Hot water is always at hand, because it continuously circulates from the hot water line to the cold water line and back to the hot water heater.
Imagine turning on a shower or faucet and getting hot water immediately. Why wait while cold water is going down the drain?
