Residential natural gas 100 gallon water heater with recirculation pump

This residential natural gas 100 gallon water heater is installed with a re-circulation pump to provide instant hot water to the homeowner. As soon as the homeowner opens a faucet or shower in the home hot water comes out.  No more waiting for hot water to arrive while gallons of good water goes down the drain.

Having a re-circulation pump installed with your water heater can make a complete difference with the amount of time you have to wait to receive hot water.

If you own a ranch style home and the hot water has to travel from one end of the home to the other it can take up to 5 minutes for the hot water to reach the faucet or shower. This is a waste of water and energy as the hot water travels through the pipes is loses some of it’s heat, making the water heater work more in the long run.

Benefits from a re-circulation pump are not only convenient they are also financially sound. How often have you stood waiting for the hot water to arrive, thinking “I wish there was a way I could get hot water faster”.

Re-circulating pumps provide the solution to this ongoing problem. Pumps are available in a few different models and styles depending on the existing plumbing you have and the style of your home.

A re-circulation pump can be added to your water heater, if there is a return line for the water to circulate through. If you do not have a return line, most often a little additional plumbing can solve that problem. If you can not have a return line added a different type of re-circulation pump can be added to your water heater, with special valves added to the hot water fixtures in your home. You will be able to have hot water instantly.

In addition to a re-circulation pump, most brands and styles of re-circulation pumps work with timers so you can set the pump to run during your peak water usage hours. This will help save even more energy, by only using the re-circulation pump to circulate the water when you will actually need the hot water at the faucet immediately. No need to have the re-circulation pump running all day if you are away from home. Most often homeowners request we set the timer for early morning and evening hours when hot water is frequently used.

    • Thank You Anthony for you comment. Depending on the existing plumbing this can be a solution to replacing 2 water heaters in a big house. Just make sure that there are not separate plumbing zones for the existing water heaters. If there are, then a different solution may be required.

  1. Well, its a great idea of using a re-circulation pump in a 100-gallon water heater and get instant hot water when needed. New tankless water heaters running through gas and electricity all are doing the same thing and lower down your energy bills. So, a very good post offering complete information.

    I hope this residential 100-gallon natural gas water heater will suit all size and shapes of houses and deliver hot water instantly!

    Thanks again,

    • Thank You Michael, for the comment. We find many 100 gallon units with re-circulation pumps and it is a great water saving device!

  2. I had no idea that you could get a recirculation pump in a water heater. It is good to know that it can make a huge difference in how much hot water you can get at once. My current water heater has a hard time getting me a lot of hot water quickly. This might be a good thing for me to look into getting for my house.
