Each year, thousands of gallons of waste water go down the drain in American homes, and with them, thousands of dollars for homeowners, utility companies, and taxpayers. A significant amount of this waste occurs when homeowners wait for their water to reach a comfortable temperature before they shower or wash their hands.
Why do homeowners have to wait for hot water? In a traditional hot water system (as well as many solar hot water systems), water runs from the water heater to each faucet in the home but ends at the farthest faucet, leaving some water in the pipes to cool. When a homeowner turns on a faucet, the cooled water sitting in the pipes circulates to the faucet first, so the homeowner has to wait for hot water.
There's a simple and inexpensive way to eliminate the wait for hot water that will delight your customers and help conserve water. By installing circulation systems in your new homes, you can give your customers instant hot water at the faucet.
