On-call recirculation pumps combat water waste and deliver hot water quickly

With water restrictions in force in California and elsewhere, water recirculation pumps are an easy way to save water.

At the 2015 AHR Expo, Hans Kuster, president of Aquamotion, a manufacturer of pumps and hydronic products, reviewed the AquaMotionHot systems that can deliver instant hot water while saving water from running down the drain.

Kuster said the AquaMotionHot systems deliver user controlled hot water that meets code where required. The annual operating cost for an AquaMotionHot circulator is as low as $2. AquaMotionHot systems save 95% of energy cost compared to constant run recirculation systems and save homeowners up to 15,000 gallons of water a year, Kuster noted.

At the 2015 AHR Expo, the product won an Honorable Mention in the Innovation Award competition.
