Grundfos Comfort System – Hot Water Recirculation System

The water circulation system that eliminates cold water runoff at the faucet using a bypass valve and pump with a timer to control water flow.

Hot Water Recirculation – Special Features

The ultimate in convenience is having hot water instantly available at sinks, appliances and bathroom faucets. The elimination of time spent waiting is especially convenient in areas where the installation of low flow showerheads and faucets are required by law.

Hot water recirculation improves the efficiency and effectiveness of household appliances including washing machines and dishwashers by having hot water available instantly.

Users can save energy by setting the 24 hour programmable timer to make hot water available during peak demand times, such as early morning and in the evening.

The recirculation pump can be installed by a certified contractor in two hours. For the average home, hot water recirculation systems generally cost a few hundred dollars, including parts and installation.

A wet rotor design for whisper-quiet and maintenance-free operation.

Stainless steel rotor cladding and canister construction, an exclusive UP 15 series feature, ensures corrosion-resistance and extended product durability.

A low-watt, two-pole motor combined with low-flow performance ensures minimum water heater operating costs, pipe and water heater wear and energy consumption.

Significant water (and sewer) disposal savings, retaining the 12,000 to 38,000 gallons of water a typical U.S. home wastes annually waiting for hot water. Some fast-growing counties are making the installation of hot water recirculation pumps mandatory for all new construction projects.

Many home owners wait up to 60-seconds or more for hot water to their faucet or shower… With Grundfos you get hot water without the wait!

How long do you wait for hot water?

Convenience and Comfort 
Home owners today are constantly seeking improvements to their lifestyle. Dishwashers, garbage disposals, microwave ovens, electric garage door openers – all once considered optional home features are now standard. No wait hot water is destined to become another one of these standard features. Home builders and plumbing contractors are making HWR a feature that not only adds value to the home, but delivers the comfort and convenience of instant hot water that should be expected. Imagine turning on a shower and getting hot water immediately. Why wait while cold water is going down the drain?

Savings and Payback 
How many stop to think what happens to the 2-3 gallons that run down the drain during the wait? Those gallons of water are wasted, and in an average household that takes four showers per day, that can add up to thousands of gallons per year. Multiplied by a subdivision of 300 homes, a community can have millions of gallons of water go down the drain into the sewer system every, single year. Hot water recirculation means hot water in an instant without unnecessary waste. Payback will result from the reduction of water usage, and water waste.

Helping the Community and Environment 
Fresh water is a precious natural resource that is slowly being depleted. In many parts of the world, stringent water conservation is already a part of everyday life. Even in the U.S., rising population and arid climates in some Western states have resulted in higher costs and stronger focus on water conservation. Hot water recirculation is a cost-effective method of controlling any additional waste of water.

What is Hot Water Recirculation? 
Hot water recirculation means a continuous flow of hot water in the hot water supply line of your home. Without a “recirc” system, unused hot water in the line cools and must be evacuated before hot water from your hot water heater can reach the desired faucet. As a result, gallons of water are wasted – and so is your time.

What are you waiting for? 
Convenience and conservation are here now. You know what it’s like to run the tap and wait for the shower to heat up before stepping in. Waiting for hot water is inconvenient and it wastes time and money. With a hot water recirculation system, the comfort of hot water in an instant and the elimination of water waste are a turn of the knob away.
