Recirculating Pump
How Recirculation Systems Work

If your water heater is in the basement or on the other side of the house from the kitchen or bathroom, you may have to wait for quite a while for hot water when you turn on the tap. This is more than just an inconvenience, it's a waste of potentially thousands of gallons of water per year, and water is an increasingly precious resource. A recirculating pump can solve this dilemma.

The function of a recirculating pump is to keep hot water moving through the pipes so that it's available at the faucet immediately. It uses about the same amount of energy as a bathroom exhaust fan, and some systems are so efficient that the energy expenditure is even less than that.

If you choose to install a recirculating pump, you'll have some up-front costs, but you can keep these low by choosing a system that employs your existing pipes. A more extravagant system requires installation of an extra hot water pipe to provide a return path for unused hot water, but you can also choose a system that uses the cold water for the return path. In this type of system, the only expenses are the pump. a few extra pipe fittings and the labor to install them.

Other important components of a recirculation system include:

  • A check valve, which ensures the water flows in only one direction. This is a requirement for any water circulation system.
  • A temperature sensor, or aquastat, to monitor the water temperature and shut off the pump when it's high enough. This is an energy-saving feature that not all systems have.
  • A timer to allow you to program the pump to come on when at times of the day when you usually need it. This is another optional energy-saving feature.
How do Boiler Pumps work?

All Boiler style water heater systems require pumps to generate flow throughout their system. As the water is pushed through the lengths of pipe, the heated water gradually cools down as it moves around the system. The pump delivers the water back to the boiler where it can be reheated.

The pump works by pressurising the water with impellers and delivering this around the system. Your pump will have a water flow inlet and an outlet.
