    Default Hot water at distant faucet

    I remember seeing a program dealing with having hot water at a faucet on the opposite side of the house from the hot water heater. As I recall some type of feed-back loop was utilized. Could someone please give me the particulars on setting up such a loop. I don't want to keep wasting 3 -4 minutes of cold water just to get the hot water across the cellar.
    Thanks, Wayne

    I too saw that show ... and need thsat same kind of info .. what was that device called ?

    I have a 1930 Tudor Revival /Storybook house that has been ...adjusted with "standard home center details for thirty years... durin gthe last three years, I have pealed off all of that 'new' stuff and restored the house...the neighborhood is in AWE .
    I need to fix the water problem as the bath is on ther third level , and the hot water heater is in the basement .

    This is one of the first houses built in my neighborhood... I have become the new historian of the area in my quest for restoration .

    Any help would aid me .

    Even the program number/name and or what that bronze device was called.
    It flushed the cold water back into the hot water tank , then sent you new hot water .. in seconds .
