Sizing Domestic Hot Water Recirculation Pumps

Presented by John Barba

Too big, too small or, just right?

When you guess at sizing a domestic hot water recirculation pump, those are your three options, and two of them aren’t good. Too small and your customer doesn’t get what they’re paying for. If it’s too big they’ll get fast hot water delivery, but there’s a better than 50-50 chance their plumbing will develop pinhole leaks sooner rather than later.

With Taco’s new DHWR SizeRight Circulator Sizing tool, there’s no more guessing. You’ll be able to give your customer the right product for their needs at the right price for their budget.
