Chula Vista, CA, (PRWEB) October 6, 2006 –-

Laing Thermotech Inc. recently introduced the exciting new Autocirc2® Hot Water Pump and Valve System that gives consumers the ultimate flexibility: Users can install the system without having an electrical outlet under the sink.

“This system allows the homeowner or plumber to install the pump near the water heater for applications where the home does not have power underneath the sink,” said Laing’s CEO, Scott S. Shimer.

This makes the new system easier to install and more cost-effective to operate for homeowners wanting the convenience and efficiency of having hot water instantly at every faucet in their house. Installing the Autocirc2 Hot Water Pump and Valve System can save the average homeowner up to 17,000 gallons of water annually, according to Shimer. And costing less than 10 cents a day to operate, the Autocirc2 can conserve enough energy to pay for itself in less than two years.

Here’s how it works: The Autocirc2 valve is installed under the sink farthest from the water heater where hot water takes the longest time to arrive. Then when the hot water supply line becomes cool, the adjustable thermostatic valve allows the cool water in the hot water supply line to flow into the cold water supply line, replacing it with hot water. The pump is installed at the water heater and is controlled by a 24-hour timer that can be set to run during peak usage times to save energy. Ultimately, the system enables hot water to become instantly available at all faucets located on the hot water supply line between the water heater and the faucet where the valve is installed.

Ideal for retrofit applications, the Autocirc2 is available from plumbing contractors and home improvement stores. The system integrates almost seamlessly with the existing hot water supply line and can easily be installed by the homeowner or a plumber. In addition, Autocirc2:

    does not require a return line

    requires only 25 watts of power

    comes complete with a 10 ft. long power cord

    can be used with multiple valves for applications with branch plumbing.

    can be set for operating periods based on the family’s usage

    is quiet during operation
