ACT D’MAND® Founder, a Panelist at 9th Annual San Bernardino County Water Conference
Larry Acker, founder of Advanced Conservation Technologies (ACT) D’MAND, Inc. (a California-based manufacturer of the patented ACT D’MAND Kontrol System® that saves the average home 10,000 gallons of water and associated costs annually) was a guest panelist at the Ninth Annual San Bernardino Water Conference to answer the question “How do we balance our development needs with our water needs?”
Civic leaders and officials from 15 California cities and over 50 water agencies attended the convention in hopes to learn more on how to address the drought conditions and development. Acker is a leading authority on hot water distributions systems, and headed a discussion during the conference on the importance of environmental consciousness and the need to conserve water in every home and business. Acker’s patented water-recovery system “Structured Plumbing®” can be easily adapted to any home’s plumbing system or quickly installed in any new construction. The annual saving of 10,000 gallons of water per household is a result of the control system’s design to pump the ambient water sitting idle in the hot water line back to the hot water heater through the cold water line. It then instantly replaces that water with hot water and is sent to the point-of-use in 3-5 seconds instead of the average 2-3 minutes needed by the traditional plumbing system.
Acker let his audience know that the operating cost of this system is less than $1 per year, the average homeowner saves $300 per year in water, sewage and utility costs, and the ROI is less than 2 years. The ACT D’MAND system is easily installed by plumbers or handy do-it-yourselfers. For more information visit www.gothotwater.com.
