"Always in hot water!"
The Hot Water Lobster Instant Hot Water Valve at only $179.95 surpasses all competition (rewci, rewilliams, laing, lainginc, water guardian, kei-intl, keidel, grundfos, chilipepper, chilipepperapp, chili pepper, metlund, redytemp, autocirc, temtrol, whhohotwaci, gethotwater and hvacquick) for the following reasons:
Be aware that most pump type systems:
are restricted to timers or cycle buttons before the pumps will circulate the water. Which means hot water may not always be available during off times or at sinks without start buttons (when you may need it);
during pump cycles, your entire cold water pipe is filled with hot water (as the water returns to your water heater), and because hot water is pumping for the entire time period, you cannot get cold water until after the pump stops.
pumps often only last 18-24 months before replacement is necessary;
initially the noise level of pumps is minimal but over time can become very noticeable (especially when your trying to sleep);
pumps often cause electrical interference to televisions and radios; and
with pump type systems, installation is more complex requiring a nearby electrical source and electrical connections (to power the pump).
On the other hand the Hot Water Lobster Instant hot Water Valve: incorporates the flexibility of an adjustable thermostatic control; is built with quality materials and workmanship for a long maintenance-free life, is easily installed (not requiring electrical wiring, timers or perishable pumps); and is completely silent.
SAVE WATER! The Hot Water Lobster Instant Hot Water Valve saves, water, time and money. How Long does it take for hot water to get to your faucet or shower? A lot of precious water is wasted down the drain while waiting for hot water. Even worse is the cost to heat the cold replacement water, which enters your house at ground temperature.
HOW IT WORKS! When the water in your hot water pipe and the Hot Water Lobster control valve cools below the user adjustable temperature (40-150 degrees F), the thermal materials within the Hot Water Lobster control valve contract, and silently open the valve. Thermal convection within your hot water tank naturally circulates the cooled water through your existing cold water pipes and back to the hot water tank for reheating. Your existing hot water tank now uses less energy reheating warm water instead of cold ground temperature water. When fresh hot water enters your hot water pipe and the Hot Water Lobster control valve, the valve automatically closes. This maintains hot water at the control valve without wasting water or energy. Turn on your faucet or shower and you get instant hot water. When you mount the Hot Water Lobster instant hot water control valve in the fixture furthest from your hot water tank (as shown in the installation diagram) all other fixtures in your house will also have faster hot water.
NO ELECTRICITY NECESSARY! The Hot Water Lobster is all mechanical and designed to provide an electricity free solution to maintain hot water at the tap. This makes installation a snap (in less than 10 minutes). Other hot water solutions require the use of electricity and pumps that make installation difficult and the pumps are often noisy.
MORE HOT WATER! Adds as much as 10% more capacity to your current hot water system (by keeping the water in your hot water pipes hot!).
KEEP PIPES FROM FREEZING! The Hot Water Lobster instant hot water valve automatically allows water in your pipes to circulate when the control valve cools below the set temperature-even when your electricity goes out.
REDUCES CONDENSATION! The Hot Water Lobster instant hot water valve reduces condensation on pipes and toilets.
MAINTENANCE FREE! The Hot Water Lobster has a solid brass valve body with an adjustable thermal controlled mechanical stainless steel valve stem enclosed in a mounting box.
EASY INSTALLATION! The Hot Water Lobster comes complete with mounting box, 4 sets of 12" flexible water lines and brass fitting. All pre-assembled and tested for an easy 10 minutes installation
STATISTICS! *A typical family wastes approximately 12,000 gallons of water annually waiting for warm water to reach the tap. *as determined by GAMA (American Manufacturing Association)
Note: Circulation of water by thermal convection must not be restricted (no check-valves) between the hot water tank and the Hot Water Lobster Instant Hot Water Valve.
