Hot water waste

The average American family wastes between 10,000 and 15,000 gallons of water annually waiting for hot water. There are a number of ways to reduce this waste. One way is the installation of a recirculation pump. This used to be a fairly invasive process, but with introduction of retrofit recirc pumps it is much easier to accomplish this.
Grundfos makes a unit that sits on top of your existing water heater and a transfer valve gets installed under the furthest fixture. I have installed plenty of these units and can say that they work great.
Not only do you save a lot of water, you don’t go crazy waiting for hot water!
