It works as advertised
I live in a towmhome and all the water pipes are underground and it takes the hot water a long time to reach the tap. I now have hot water at the tap in a few seconds rather then minutes. It saves water and more importantly hot water.
It will not provide hot water like a three pipe system, but having warm water immediately is so much better than having a long cold wait. I would highly recommend the product.
Terrific product that saves $$$
If you need a hot water re circulation line and absolutely do not want to open up walls, then this will do the trick.Note:Only works with regular water heaters.The maximum number of sensor valves on a system is 3.
Bought this pump since an earlier one lasted over 8 years (warrantied for 2 years). More than satisfied with the quality and performance.
I own a house in Florida where the master bath is all the way on the opposite side of the house and the plumbing is in the slab. Adding a return line is not an option and we had to run the water for 5 minutes to get warm water. This package was easy to install and worked like a champ.
It is a "No Brainer"
Our water heater is in the garage at one end of the house and our shower is upstairs and at the other end of the house. So we needed to run our shower for 3 minutes or so to get hot water. And since we were tired of dragging the 3 gal bucket of water back down stairs to water our plants, I decided to try this product.It was very easy to install and works great. The timer is a real plus. Since we both get up at 5am, we set the timer to go on at 4:30am and go off at 8am, and by the time we are ready for our showers, we have hot water in our shower. No more lugging buckets of water. We highly recommend this product, since our scarce water supply in Southern California will not end soon, but our water bills will increase. This Comfort System is really making a difference. And the quality of the product exceeded our expectations. We don't see any disadvantages to this product.
This unit was rather easy to install and it works great! Because of the house layout, I installed three comfort valves, one at each bathroom. It is so nice to get up in the morning and have instant hot water at the tap. Before I installed the unit, we would have to dump several gallons of water down the drain before the hot water from the water heater arrived. I'm looking forward to a reduction in our expensive Cal Water bill!
Will this product prevent my pipes from freezing when outside temperatures occasionally reach -30F? No heat is available in the house while unoccupied for up to 30 days.

This pump is not intended for freeze protection purposes. While it may prevent freezing by re-circulating the water at pre-programmed intervals, there's no guarantee that water will not freeze in between these intervals. A better option might be to drain the water lines.

This pump does not require a return loop and is not designed for a system with return hot water line. If you already have a return line, you can use any circulator pump from Grundfos Comfort System Line except this one.

Like the price for combo. But I do not need or want the timer. Do you have a package without the timer.

This is the only re-circulating pump that does not require return line and Grundfos makes no other variations of it.

Why would I pay for a stainless steel pump housing when I can get a cast iron housing cheaper? I intend to use the pump for hot water recirc with cold water line as return.Thanks!

Cast iron circulator pumps are designed for use in closed-loop heating systems only, where there's no oxygen (air molecules) in the water. Oxygen-rich water quickly corrodes the circulator shortening it's lifespan and reducing system efficiency. Both stainless steel and bronze circulators are equally suitable for use with oxygen-rich water.
