Hot Water Recirculating Pumps, and Why You Need One


If your water heater is getting up there in years, it could be taking longer and longer to get hot water to the faucet or showerhead you’re waiting at. It’s equal parts annoying and wasteful of water. But it happens – things just don’t need to remain as they are.

In fact, now you can enjoy an instant supply of hot water from any faucet or hot-water-using appliance without having to replace your water heater. Not that your water heater will last forever, mind you. But why replace it when there’s a simpler, faster, and more affordable solution waiting for your right now?

It’s called a hot water recirculating pump, and Connor Plumbing is ready to install one for you.

How a hot water recirculating pump works

In a typical plumbing system, hot water is sent from the water heater to a faucet. When the latter is shut off, the water cools down inside the pipes. The next time you turn on a hot water faucet, the wait time starts all over again.

With a hot water recirculating pump, that cooled-down water is sent back to the water heater to be reheated. At the same time, a small amount of hot water is steadily being pumped throughout your plumbing system from your water heater and back again. That’s what gives you hot water without waiting.

Recirculating pump benefits

Besides helping to calm your nerves, you can conserve huge amounts of water once your new pump is installed and ready to go. Less time spent waiting also means reduced water and energy bills.

Here’s another key benefit to consider – hot water pumps relieve water heaters of some of their burden which, in turn, can help your water heater last longer.

If this sounds like the kind of solution you’ve been waiting for, then Connor Plumbing is waiting and ready to hear from you. Connor Plumbing – for all your residential plumbing needs.
