Instant Hot Water at Every Faucet | Water Heater Pros

Instant Hot Water at Every Faucet

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. Getting hot water instantly at every faucet is now possible. Water heater pros can install an Taco® Hot Link recirculation system.

Instant Hot Water

No additional plumbing or electrical needed! Hot-Link® is a quick, easy retrofit using the existing plumbing. Mount the valve under the sink furthest from the water heater and the pump at the water heater. The valve's unique thermal disc technology sends cooled water back to the water heater so hot water lines remain hot.

Domestic Hot Water Recirculation

The Problem: Waiting for Hot Water

It’s a common problem: turn on the faucet or shower for hot water, then wait for it to arrive. In fact, the wait can be minutes in larger homes with multiple bathrooms and long runs of pipe between the plumbing fixtures and the water heater! With a Taco Domestic Hot Water Recirculation System in place, there’s no more wait. Instant hot water!

 

Waiting Means Wasting

Waiting for hot water sends millions of gallons of cooled water down the drain each year. In fact, an average family of four wastes up to 12,000 gallons of water each year waiting for hot water.* Water conservation is so important that many US states and municipalities routinely impose watering bans and offer rebate incentives to help conserve this natural resource.

Energy Down The Drain

Of course, all that “waiting water” contains some heat energy (BTU’s), even if it’s only room temperature. Wasting those BTU’s and starting over with fresh, cold water to heat up requires even more heat energy. So in addition to wasting water, millions of BTU’s and energy dollars are wasted, too.

System Types & Products

Dedicated return line piping

This system is provided with a dedicated return line installed between the end of the hot water supply pipe and the water heater. A circulator is installed in the piping loop to move the hot water from the water heater through the supply pipe and back through the return pipe.

 

Taco provides four great options for this system:

• 006e3™

• SmartPlus-e™ (Bundle Packaging)

• Plumb n'Plug®

• TacoGenie®

• SmartPlug® (with any corded circulator)

 

Piping without a return line

A domestic hot water system without a dedicated return line requires a "point of use" product that is typically installed at the fixture furthest from the water heater. The cold water supply pipe is used as the return line to the water heater.

 

Taco provides four great options for this system:

• Hot-LinkPlus-e (Bundle Packaging)
