3 Reasons to Consider Installing a Hot Water Recirculating Pump in Your Bay Area Home

When you are getting ready to take a shower or wash your hands, think about all of the water that gets wasted down the drain while you wait for it to heat up. Don’t you wish there was a way you could turn on a tap and instantly receive hot water? With a recirculating pump, you can! Today we’re going to talk about what a hot water recirculating pump is and three reasons why you should consider installing one in your home!

What does a hot water recirculating pump do?

When you turn on a hot water tap, water is delivered from yourwater heater to that tap until you shut it off. When you do finally shut off the tap, there is still unused water that sits in your hot water supply lines. This water cools down as it sits in your pipes. When you turn on a hot water tap again, that cooled-down water comes out of your taps first until more hot water from your water heater replaces it.

A hot water recirculating pump makes use out of the unused water that sits in your hot water supply lines. It works by continuously circulating water from your water heater to the farthest corners of your hot water supply lines and back again. As a result, you will instantly receive hot water when you turn on a hot water tap because the unused water has no chance to cool down.
