How it Works

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 98º 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.
