Domestic hot water recirculation (DHWR) systems can provide the convenience of instant hot water and save thousands of gallons of water per year. But did you know that an improperly sized circulator can be a big inconvenience, and potentially cost you thousands of dollars?
An undersized circulator might not provide enough flow to keep the water in the lines hot, resulting in a hot water recirculation system that doesn't do what it's supposed to - and an unhappy customer. An oversized circulator will result in higher initial cost for the pump, greater energy use, and possible premature pipe failures due to wear and tear from too much flow, resulting in costly damages from a leaking system.
Taking the time to properly size the circulator upfront can help avoid potentially massive headaches down the road. But knowing the formulas and doing the math to correctly size a circulator for a domestic hot water recirculation system can be time consuming and slow down a job.
With the Taco Comfort Solutions DHWR SizeRight Circulator Sizing Tool, you can now properly size a circulator in a fraction of the time it would take to do it manually.
