Taco D'Mand System
Taco D'MAND system is a hot water recirculation system that operates 24 hours a day and is designed to provide on-demand hot water, while saving water, energy and money.
Taco D'MAND system is typically installed in the most remote area of the house, where it takes the most time for the hot water to reach a plumbing fixture, such as a kitchen or a bathroom sink. Since this system is compact and quiet, it is well suited for installation under the sink in the kitchen cabinet or a vanity.
The idea behind the system is simple - it assures that there's on-demand hot water supply at the fixture at all times. The system can be activated manually, with a push of a button, or wirelessly, with an optional transmitter/receiver. At the same time the D'MAND system includes a sensor, which is smart enough to shut down the pump when the desired water temperature is reached.
How does it save money?
The Taco D'MAND system lets you save on water bills, since all the cool water you would normally let run down the drain is sent back to the water heater through the cold water line. Since the hot water recirculation is done by using both the hot and the cold water lines, there are not added costs for running a return line.
How much does it save?
According to data published by Taco, the D'MAND system can save an average of $180.00-225.00 per year on bills for gas type water heaters and $500.00-625.00 per year for electric water heaters.
