ACT D’MAND® Founder Larry Acker Lectures at Oklahoma’s OK Building Summit and Expo
Several thousand builders, prime subcontractors, superintendents and construction decision-makers recently convened in Oklahoma City for the annual OK Building Summit and Expo where Larry Acker, founder of ACT D’MAND, Inc., a California-based manufacturer of a patented home plumbing enhancement designed to save the average homeowner 10,000 gallons of water and associated costs, lectured on “How to Structure Your Plumbing with Energy and Water Efficiency Products that Meet Codes and Compliances”.
The ACT D’MAND Kontrols® Systems brings 21st century technology and efficiencies to traditional plumbing systems in order to create significant water savings and associated costs. Additionally, the product provides the homeowner with the convenience of instant hot water for the instead of the annoyance and waste of running the hot water for several minutes. Here’s how it works: the typical home has a hot water heater that works constantly to be making hot water available 24/7/365. But the water sitting idle in the hot water lines turns ambient as it sits waiting to be called for use. When someone turns on a water faucet for the heated water, all of this ambient-temperature water runs down the drain during the wait. This amounts to an annual average of 10,000 gallons of water waste per home. The ACT D’MAND Kontrols® System can be installed to an existing plumbing system or within any new construction. With an on-demand system, the user simply pushes an LED wireless button near the point-of-use and the system immediately pumps the ambient water in the hot water line back to the water heater through the cold water line to re-use it; hot water is suddenly at the faucet in 2-3 seconds.
Acker pointed out during the expo that not only does the ACT D’MAND Kontrol System save the average homeowner $300 per year in water, sewage and utility costs with an ROI of less than two years, it also adds value to the home. The savings is one thing, but the advantage of nearly instant hot water is a noteworthy attribute when listing a home for sale.
