Chicago, IL – January 23, 2012 – Designed for systems with dedicated hot water return lines, the new SmartPlus circulator combines the reliability of Taco’s 00® line with cutting edge electronics to achieve efficient domestic hot water recirculation.
When set to “smart” mode, the SmartPlus circulator records each time hot water is called for during a seven day period and then duplicates the pattern for the following week. This energy saving process occurs constantly, so hot water is ready when it’s needed. With SmartPlus, the average household can save up to 12,000 gallons of water in a year.
The SmartPlus can also be set to “pulse” mode. It will operate for 150 seconds every ten minutes, maintaining hot water at all fixtures.
Whether in “smart” or “pulse” mode, the circulator will automatically enter “vacation” mode if hot water is not used for 36 hours. In this mode, water will be circulated once a week to prevent corrosion and scale buildup. When hot water is again called for, the unit will go back to normal operation.
SmartPlus is available in a range of sizes and system connection options to accommodate residential and light commercial domestic recirculation applications. Available in bronze or stainless steel, with an optional internal flow check (IFC®).
Taco’s new e-smart tag – which the SmartPlus proudly wears – identifies Taco’s most resource-saving technology.
