One of the most common home plumbing problems is the wait for hot water. The best Green Plumbing Solution to this issue is to install an ACT, Inc. D’MAND Kontrols® pump in your home so you can greatly reduce both the wait time for hot water and the water wasted down the drain. The ACT, Inc. D’MAND Kontrols® pump delivers hot water to all fixtures on the line it is affixed to and saves the earth’s most precious commodity: water - and lots of it! Green Plumbing Technology is a focus of ACT, Inc. and with the D’MAND Kontrols® pump we have a product that offers the homeowner convenience while conserving water and energy. Depending on your home plumbing layout, the ACT, Inc. D’MAND Kontrols® pump will either be installed under the furthest fixture or at the end of the dedicated return line. When considering whether the D’MAND Kontrols® pump is the right green plumbing solution for your home, it is important to remember that the ACT, Inc. D'MAND Kontrols® System works with both the Standard or Structured home plumbing layouts.
Structured Plumbing® :
In a home plumbing layout that utilizes Structured Plumbing®, the ACT, Inc. D’MAND Kontrols® pump should be placed at the end of the dedicated return line, just before the water heater. The thermistor in the D’MAND Kontrols® pump will detect a six degree rise in water temperature and turn off the pump once that degree rise has been detected. The dedicated return line enhances the plumbing system design by placing the recirculation system next to the water heater. ACT, Inc. recommends including a dedicated return line when designing residential plumbing systems for new home construction. If you are considering installing a dedicated return line, then placing an ACT, Inc. D’MAND Kontrols® pump at the end of the line is one of the best Green Plumbing Solutions you can apply.
