Recirculation Pump Services for Water Heaters in San Jose, CA

Enjoy the Convenience of Instant Hot Water

SWAGS Plumbing and Rooter has been providing homeowners throughout San Jose and the surrounding cities with a money-saving and convenient way to enjoy on-demand hot water at all your fixtures. When you turn on the shower, you normally need to wait for the cold water to cycle through the pipes before you get hot water. The distance between the water heater and the fixture will determine how long you have to wait for hot water, which wastes water and money. SWAGS Plumbing and Rooter plumbers can install a recirculation pump with a hot water return line that ensures you get hot water immediately when you need it. 

Our highly trained and experienced team can recommend the right system to help you save water and money. Contact our plumbers today to get started.

What Is a Hot Water Recirculation System?

A hot water recirculation system is a plumbing solution designed to provide instantaneous hot water at every fixture throughout a property. The system involves a hot water recirculating pump that ensures hot water is readily available at the faucet, eliminating the need to wait for the water to heat up.

Types of Recirculating Pumps We Can Install

There are two different types of recirculation pump systems. When you choose us, our plumbers will come to your home, listen to your concerns, and make recommendations based on your needs and budget. You can always count on us to provide comprehensive services that are completed quickly. The two types of recirculating pump systems our team offers include:

Full Recirculating Pump System

When you turn off your hot water faucet after use, the water in the pipes becomes stagnant and begins to cool down. However, our plumbers will install a hot water return line, creating a hot water loop with our full recirculation pump system. Your pump continually circulates the water from your water heater, keeping the water in the line hot and ready to use.

Recirculating Pump Comfort System

Our comfort system offers a lower upfront cost because it doesn’t require a return line to be installed. Instead, the cooled hot water is returned through your home’s cold-water pipes via a thermal bypass valve that shuts off once hot water is detected and ready to use. With a lower upfront cost, the comfort system is ideal for homeowners looking to save money.
