Save Water, Money, and Energy with ACT, Inc. D’MAND Kontrol® Hot Water Recirculation Systems

September 28, 2012

COSTA MESA, Calif., Sept. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — ACT, Inc. D’MAND Kontrol® Systems, a leading provider of D’MAND Kontrolled® hot water recirculation systems, is proven to save water, energy, and money in residential homes.

The ACT, Inc. D’MAND Kontrol® Hot Water Recirculation Pump system works by circulating ambient temperature water back to the water heater through the cold water line. Since no water runs down the drain while waiting for hot water, users can save significant amounts of water and energy every day.

In a recent case study, Reality-LLC quantified the benefits of a scenario in which the city of Sierra Vista, AZ mandated on-demand hot water recirculation pumps in all residential plumbing for new home construction. When on-demand pumps were substituted for timer pumps, wasted water was reduced 87% and wasted energy was reduced by 65%.

Studies by ACT, Inc. D’MAND Kontrol® Systems found that the average homeowner wastes 20 to 40 gallons of water per day. If each home saved only 20 gallons of water each day, or 7,300 gallons per year, then every year homeowners in 100 homes would save 730,000 gallons of water; $25,088 in electricity, water, and sewer costs; or $15,084 in natural gas, water, and sewer costs.

Additionally, the ACT, Inc. D’MAND Kontrol® System is the only hot water recirculation pump system that can make the following claims:

  • The pump does NOT void or change tankless water heater warranties
  • Doesn’t run 24/7, preventing wasted water and energy and wear and tear on water heaters
  • Is the only company that offers motion sensors – just walk by and hot water is present
  • Is very quiet, similar to a ceiling fan on low setting
  • Offers a five-year warranty
