The Comfort and Savings of Instant Hot Water with Recirculation
Hot Water Recirculation Systems: For Retrofit & New Construction
How long do you wait for hot water when you turn on the faucet? 30 seconds, 1 minute, 2 or 3 minutes, longer? While you wait, a home with 5 taps can waste up to 15,000 gallons of tempered water down the drain. You pay for this potable water, wasted energy and sewage fees.
Install a proven, awarded AquaMotion recirculation system. One system is available for every type of installation, hot water tanks or tankless.

To run the circulator with timer at $0.12 per kw is approx. $3.00, $8.00 for the large pump annually. Our hot water recirculation kits have an approx. one to three year payback depending on the size of the installation.
How Does It Work?
A pump at the tank or tankless heater, or installed under the sink, forces the lukewarm water from the hot supply line into the cold supply line. If a dedicated return line is used it returns the lukewarm water to the heater.
A sensor/switch (Aquastat) built into the pump or an Aqua-Flash® or ODR Superflow™ By-pass valve transfers the lukewarm water into the cold pipe. The valves maintain average 93° F (34° C) at the sink. The under sink pump starts when temperature drops to 85° F (30° C) and stops when it reaches 104° F (40° C). The pump runs about 3 times an hour for 2 minutes. A built-in 24-hour mechanical timer allows the user to set the time when he wants instant hot water. An ON DEMAND button/motion sensor or app can also activate the system
