Nobody questions the growing risk and urgent need for action along the Colorado River,” Burman said. “Completion of drought contingency plans is long overdue. Action is needed now. In the absence of consensus plans from the Basin states, the federal government must take action to protect the river and all who depend on it — farmers and cities across seven states.”

Here is what we are doing to help:




This is a hot water recirculating pump that we place on top of the water heater.

This is the manifold for the hot water recirculating pump.

Here is how these two components work together to save you a lot of water.

A pump with a built-in timer is installed on the hot water line from the water heater. A patented sensor valve opens when the water on the hot water side cools and pushes the cool water back to the water heater. As the temperature in the hot water line hits 98 degrees, the valve closes. Some homes are designed with multiple hot water loops, one per floor, etc. If one section of the house does not receive hot water, you will need to purchase a Watts Sensor Valve Kit for each loop. For best results, the valve should be located at the faucet furthest from the water heater in each loop.

How much water is wasted each year by letting the water run to get hot?

An average home has 125 feet of 3/4 inch pipe. This holds 3.14 gallons of water. If hot water is used 10 times per day, 31 gallons of water is wasted running the faucets/shower to get the hot water. In a year, this equals 11,461 gallons of water. Over twenty-five millions homes waste approximately 300 billion gallons of water annually.

I find that many people get these for the convenience (fast hot water to any faucet and shower).
