I can only wonder why it's not implemented on all plumbing systems in homes with long runs…figure the added amount to your sewer and water bill reflected on water usage just to get hot water in the morning or any time of day. It's a stress reducer and a money saver. My relatives are interested now…” ******** On 02/01/10, Daniel from Canada wrote: “The order process was quick and efficient. I received an email confirmation of my order right away, and another email the next day when it shipped. The package arrived a few days after that, with a well-inkjet-printed paper version of the clear and carefully written instructions I’d downloaded. The installation was as easy as Hotwaterlobster.com said it would be. If something had gone wrong, their phone number was right on the instruction booklet. The device seems to be of good quality and careful workmanship. Best of all, it works as promised: hot water comes out the taps noticeably sooner than before, even in my drafty old house in the middle of Canadian winter.” ******** On 01/15/10, Hal wrote: “I have a Hot Water Lobster and my whole family loves it.

I’m a retired mechanical engineer with ten U.S. Patents and I could not have designed a more compact and functional part that is well-manufactured and completely assembled to easily install in tight places. The installation instructions were simple and complete, well-illustrated, and written by someone who understands the English language. Kudos to the Lobster Team.

I decided to go out on the internet to look for something else. That's when I saw your website for the HWL. I read all about it and it peaked my curiosity. I thought, could this be my answer to my problem? We have a hot water run to the master bath of about 85 feet. It take about 1 minute and 20 seconds at medium flow to get the water warm enough to even wash your hands and face. I ordered one to see what the HWL could do for my hot water problem. I received the HWL a few days ago, took it out of the box and proceeded with the installation. All the fittings were already assembled on the HWL. All that was needed for me to install the HWL was 2 wrenches and not even any pipe dope or teflon tape. My kind of install. Well, I installed the HWL in about 20 minutes, followed the directions on how to get it working properly and by the time I got my tools together, I went to wash my hands and had warm water!!! Probably 5 minutes had gone by since I finished the installation. That was great but the real test was the next day. I still wasn't too sure if it was going to work. That next morning, after letting everything cool down overnight, my wife went to turn on the hot water in the master bath and I reminded her to time how long it took the hot water to get there. All I heard from the bathroom was... I don't need the clock. The hot water is already here. AWESOME!!! The water was warm enough to wash your face and hands. It was instantaneous. Well it made a believer out of me. "HatsOff" to you and to a great product. Besides the installation, another thing that really sold me on the HWL was the warranty.. 30 day money back guarantee and 10 year parts and labor. I figured it must be a pretty good product to offer the customers a warranty like that. The HWL is worth every penny!! Thanks for all your help!” ******** “Good idea, good service. I called the company to ask questions and was treated well…I just installed it a few days ago…this company seems to have a very good reputation for standing behind the Lobster…its a better application as there is no electricity required. It was comforting to actually talk to someone at the home office in Michigan before purchasing. The delivery was fast, and much faster than I expected.” ******** “Greetings from Oscoda, Michigan; I live in a 6,000 square foot home and my wife would always complain about how long it took to get hot water to the kitchen sink. What a pain it is to try and do dishes or wash your hands but have to wait 5 or 10 minutes for the water to get warm or hot. When we would take a shower we would turn the water on go do something else then come back and hopefully the water would be hot. Earlier this year I was checking the internet regarding instant hot water and circulating pumps when I came across your ad and decided to try it. Well let me tell you; it only took me about 10 minutes to install it under the kitchen sink and with in a few minutes we had hot water at the kitchen sink. The next morning when we usually have to wait 5 or 10 minutes for hot water, wa-la instant hot water. We love your product, great invention. It really worked like you said …Thank you.” ******** “exceeded my expectations...amazing that a little valve could do so much at such a great price” ******** "This was a very pleasant experience. I spoke to them on the phone and the gentleman answered all my questions and was very nice. They offer a 30-day money back guarantee and offer a product that has no rival in the industry…this device has significantly lowered times for hot water delivery to the faucets." ******** “I purchased your hot water lobster and received it on June 1, 2007. I immediately installed the unit and sure enough we had hot water instantly…I selected your device and installed it under our kitchen sink because I don't have an outlet available at the sink location…Thank you…” ******** “I would like to thank you for your sincere approach in dealing with problems…Your money return was prompt unlike many business. Thank You!” ******** “I would just like to say that you folks have invented a product that really does what it says. I will tell as many people I can about this product. thank you” ******** “I just want to thank you for the excellent customer service. It is great to see that a company like yours still exists. Regards. Girard” ******** “My Hot Water Lobster Works Great! I connected the HWL in about 15 minutes. The hoses and fittings that you provided fit perfectly. At first it worked too well; the circulation was so strong that the cold water line was getting hot. After some tweaking of the adjustment knob I've got hot water on demand with just a bit of warm water on the cold side. Thanks for a great product! Ron-Architect & Homeowner, Andover, Mass.” ******** “Two weeks after installing my Lobster the temperature here in northern Massachusetts dipped to around zero. Normally, the pipes leading to my house addition game room would freeze, and would not thaw out until the temperature went back into the high 20s or 30s. I've been checking the water and every time I turn on the hot water valves in the game room I get almost instant hot water. And the cold runs too without any troubles...We also get faster hot water in several sinks in the house…Overall, I'm totally amazed at how well the lobster is doing the job it was advertised to do. You might have just saved me hundreds of dollars and lots of aggravation had those pipes burst one of these days...What an invention! For once a product does what it claims it will do...Bravo! Mike from Haverhill, MA” ******** “I was skeptical at first, but after installing the Hot Water Lobster I was convinced it actually does what its supposed to do.... We built a spare room behind the garage and ran water pipes from our cellar out to the room, through some exterior walls. Either because of the long distance, or because the pipes go through rather cold walls (Massachusetts in the winter) it would take upwards of 45 seconds to get hot water at the spare bedroom bathroom sink as well as kitchenette. Now, with the lobster installed, it takes about 6-8 seconds. Same goes for the faucets in our house. It used to take upwards of 15 seconds to get hot water, now it takes about five seconds... But overall, I’m really impressed with this device, as well as how easy it was to install! Thanks for a great product... Mike in Massachusetts“ ******** “I had questions regarding our plumbing system and they spent lots of time with emails back and forth to answer my questions and resolve my situation. We are VERY happy with how easy it was to install and use. We live on a concrete slab and were not getting hot water to our shower as it was on the opposite end of the house from the water heater. We now have hot water so my husband isn’t wanting to move to another house now. We are so THANKFUL to The Hot Water Lobster company for ALL their KIND and QUICK CUSTOMER SUPPORT! I will definitely recommend this company to anyone I know who is having the same problem with getting hot water as we WERE!” ******** “I used the Lobster to fix a bathroom pipe that had been freezing. Other companies’ hot water circulators require electrical power, a timer, and a pump, which the Lobster does not. This relies on a temperature-sensitive mechanical valve and the fact that hot water rises in the water heater, causing it to circulate when the valve is open. Delivery was fast, installation was extremely easy, and it works great. It has since gotten much colder, but the pipe hasn’t frozen.” ******** “Product arrived within two days of ordering it without specifying rush order. Product works as was described and I am very happy with it!!! For the price and ease of installation it cant be beat!!” ******** “Customer service response was excellent in both shipping and questions about product. Item arrived as predicted and is easy to install, and it worked.” ******** “I installed the valve under the dual sink vanity in the Master Bath, under left sink, and I had Hot water in every sink and shower within 10 secs. My wife Licia is ecstatic about it. It is a dream come true to her. I look forward to the big energy savings as well. Thanks a lot for everything. I plan to let other people know about the device and what it can do to also save them money, especially the fact it doesn't use electricity. Thanks again.....................Sam” ******** “The Hot Water Lobster seems the perfect solution to my problem of getting hot water from the water heater to a distant bathroom faucet, not requiring an electric pump or extensive piping... The installation is not difficult and the accompanying instructions are clear and easy to follow. The warrantee is superb. It’s a real winner.” ******** “I had spent years waiting for the water to run hot in my kitchen sink. I had called a plummer to do another job on my kitchen sink so I asked him to install the Lobster while he was there. He read the instructions and found that it would a very easy install. He had never heard of the Lobster Instant Hot Water Valve and said that he could use something like that in his own house and knew several customers who would be interested if it worked. He said he would call me that evening to see if was working. He put away his tools which took only about 5 minutes. He went to check to see if everything was working and to the surprise of both of us, he turned on the faucet and there it was, HOT WATER. There was hot water in every sink along the line. I tell everyone about this great invention!!” ******** “I am very impressed with the Hot Water Lobster system. Our kitchen sink is the furthest from out hot water heater. It used to take almost 2 ½ minutes for the water to heat up. Now with the Lobster, it just takes 20 seconds and all our other hot water faucets in our house supply hot water quicker.” ******** “After researching this type of product I ordered the Hot Water Lobster on line and I received a e-mail confirmation of my order and the product was delivered the next day. The ease of installation and product are working as advertised, I am recommending it to family and friends.” ******** “Hello, I just wanted to let you folks know that I received my "Hot water Lobster" last week Wednesday, after placing the order on Sunday, and installed it in a very short time that evening. We found that we had warm water immediately the next morning, and hot water in a very short time after. The unit is installed on the second floor bathroom, the furthest sink from the water heater which is located in the basement of our home. Also have hot water immediately in a first floor bathroom, since the water lines feed this room prior to running upstairs. I have never really figured out how much water we were wasting by running-just to get warm or hot water, but I suppose some of the figures I have read about could very well be in the ball park, and with our current rates of water cost, plus the cost for sewage, the unit cost will be fully recovered in less than two years. I am recommending this unit to anyone that not only wants hot water quickly, but also save money. Thank you very much for a great product, and the quick service. Kurt” ******** “The product appears to be working well and is a good alternative to the other types of hot water circulation systems that require electrical connection. Their customer service was very friendly and helpful with other questions I had both before and after purchase.” ******** “Great product! I reviewed several other products. Others required more complex installation, higher prices, and pumps that I believe will inevitably fail. The Hot Water Lobster works as advertised. Its great to have hot water in our second story bathrooms without having to wait!... My compliments to whomever invented the Hot Water Lobster, and to this seller for an easy order, and VERY FAST delivery!” ******** "Good morning. I recently purchased a Lobster and love it. I tell everyone I see. I would like to know if you can send me some of your brochures so that I can give to my friends and people I do work for as an Electrical Contractor. Plus if ok with you would like to send one to my water company here in Arizona because they are always looking to save. I also heard Sen John McCain of Arizona say we need to fix the Water problem in Arizona NOW so I would also like to send him one...Thanks again Kirt Of Whyte Wyre Electrical Services" ******** “From my second level master bathroom, I used to wait between 60-70 seconds for warm/hot water and now the water is already warm from the hot spigot and gets hot in 7-10 seconds. This product really works and it is easy to install. I highly recommend it!” ******** “Product is high quality and works as advertised. Highly recommend this merchant.”
