When is an on-demand water pumping system a good idea?
An on-demand pumping systems makes sense if the wait for hot water is long and the waste of ambient temperature water is significant in highly used areas such as the kitchen, bathroom or laundry area. If there are two or more hot water locations on the same trunk line having the furthest hot water location from the hot water heater it would be beneficial to have an on-demand pumping system. Also, if there are two or more hot water locations with similar, long wait times it generally means they are on separate trunks. If they are used often, then it would be effective to install an on-demand pumping system on each line. The pump is placed on each applicable trunk line at the furthest hot water outlet from the hot water heater, significantly reducing the time-to-tap at each used hot water outlet in the home.
These on-demand water pumping systems have a typical ROI of two years and are easily installed. For more information visit www.gothotwter.com.
