Taco has a solution for every domestic hot water recirculation (DHWR) challenge and homeowner preference. All systems are designed to conserve water and increase comfort by reducing the delivery time of hot water to outlet fixtures.
Products for new construction piping with a dedicated return line include Plumb n’ Plug® (digital or analog), Smart Plus™ and TacoGenie™. For retrofits using the existing plumbing, Taco’s Hot-Link® and TacoGenie (with optional undersink installation kit) use the cold water line to complete the recirculation loop.
Plumb n’ Plug® – Periodically recirculates hot water with quiet, efficient operation and low power consumption. The optional 24 hour analog or 7-day digital programmable clock timers are easy to program and can be set to run during peak usage hours or continuously.
SmartPlus™ – Is fully automatic and never needs programming. When set to “smart” mode, the circulator records each time hot water is called for during a week’s time, then duplicates the pattern the following week. Can also be set to “pulse” mode – operating for 150 seconds every ten minutes. Automatically shifts to “vacation” mode if hot water isn’t used for 36 hours.
Hot-Link® – Instant hot water with no additional plumbing or electrical required. Hot-Link is a quick, easy retrofit using the existing plumbing. Valve is mounted under the sink and the analog timer pump at the water heater. The valve’s thermal disk sends cooled water back to the water heater so hot water lines remain hot.
Taco Genie™– The small, silent pump attaches to hot and cold water lines in the cabinet under the most remote kitchen or bath fixture. When activated, cool water that normally runs down the drain is recirculated back to the water heater through the cold water line. When hot water arrives at the faucet, the pump automatically shuts off to prevent pumping excess hot water into the cold water line. Can also be installed in dedicated return line systems.
