The mechanics of water conservation

One way of conserving water is to make a conscious effort to use less on a daily basis —and that’s great. There’s another way to conserve water that doesn’t require any effort at all. No planning or thinking is involved, when an ACT D’MAND Kontrols System is installed in a house or commercial building.

The ACT D’MAND Kontrols System is an electronic pump that works with any existing or new plumbing system, in residential, commercial and multi-family buildings to save both water and energy. spaces from 800 to 25,000 square feet. Through proprietary technology, the ACT D’MAND Kontrols System’s high-speed electronic pump creates hot water on demand. This means there’s no running water going down the drain while waiting for 50-degree water to heat to 120 degrees. When water isn’t wasted, it’s saved. That makes for effortless water conservation.

ACT D'MAND Kontrols System

Homeowners install the ACT D’MAND pump under a sink in the house, typically the one farthest from the hot water tank. When hot water is needed from any faucet at a sink, bath or shower, hot water is available within a second or two—even if two or more faucets are being used at the same time. Any excess cool water is recirculated into the water heater instead of circling the drain.

By simply installing an ACT D’MAND Kontrols System, the average household can save between 7,000 to 10,000 gallons of water per year, without a change in lifestyle.
