Are you wasting water while waiting forever
for hot water to get to your faucet?
You’re not alone. Precious water is wasted down the drain by the gallons while you wait for hot water to get to your faucet. Whether it’s your sink, bath or shower, it’s a feeling we all have that there must be a way to prevent wasting all that water.
There is a solution and it’s easier than you think.
Now imagine the improvement in your morning routine when a hot shower is ready the instant you step into the stall. No more standing and shivering as you wait for the water to warm. Instead it warms itself as you grab a towel and disrobe.
Faster hot water with zero waste is not a fantasy. It is easier and more affordable than many homeowners have ever imagined – when they install a WaterQuick Pro circulation pump.
What is the WaterQuick Circulation Pump?
This affordable device is a hot water recirculation pump that works with traditional and tankless water heaters. It is a small system that attaches directly to the water heater without the need of expensive remodeling or specialized tools. The installation process is fast and easy for any DIY homeowner with basic plumbing experience. Only one unit is required to provide hot water to the entire house no matter how many fixtures are in the home.
How is the device installed?
A WaterQuick circulation pump is attached to the hot water outlet of the water heater and it takes only a few simple steps before it is ready for use.
- Turn off the water heater and then then turn of the water to the water heater.
- Drain the hot water line.
- Disconnect the hot water supply line at the water heater.
- Thread the Flow Monitor with the arrow pointing up onto the hot water nipple on the water heater.
- Install a ¾” union or coupling on the pump – use Teflon tape and/or pipe dope.
- Install the pump with the arrow pointing in the direction of flow.
- Reconnect the hot water supply line.
- Turn on the water and check for leaks.
- Plug in the pump to a wall outlet and connect the Flow Monitor wire to the pump.
- Install Bridge Valve under farthest sink from the water heater (no electricity required).
Full installation generally takes 1 to 2 hours to complete and the instructions are included with the pump.
How is the pump activated?
The hot water circulation pump automatically activates when the hot water is turned on anywhere in the home. The user turns the hot water on and off immediately. The pump activates and warms the water in 45 seconds or less. The water is turned back on after this short delay and hot water is instantly available.
How does the WaterQuick circulation pump work?
The Flow Monitor detects when the hot water is activated anywhere in the home and turns on the hot water pump. The cool water remaining in the line (the water that would normally run down the drain while the user waits for the warm water to arrive) is circulated back into the water heater through the cold water line. A sensor built into the Bridge Valve closes the valve when hot water reaches it and shuts off the pump. This guarantees that hot water is available to all sinks and tubs or showers, but prevents the pump from working when it is no longer needed.
