Re: Hot water slow to reach upstairs bath room
The Laing Autocirc pump can be installed under the bathroom sink by a DIY'er as long as there is an outlet nearby that it can be plugged into.
It connects to both the hot and cold lines, and pumps the hot line into the cold line until the hot water reaches a thermostatic valve in the unit (and the valve closes). It does not require a separate return line.
The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
