There is a thermostat in the black attachment which gets mounted at the far away sink. There are no wires except for the 120v plug that the pump plugs into. It will allow hot water to be pushed into the cold water pipe, but only until it hits 98 degrees. It use to take nearly 5 minutes for my back shower to get hot enough to step inside, and now that time has been dropped to about 7 seconds. Living in California, the price for water is more than electricity and gas combined, and the local municipalities are not on my back for increased water usage. It took about a week to fine tune the timer to suit our personal needs. I have it turn on in the early morning for showers, again will turn on about dinner time for doing dishes, and then turn on at bed time for face washing, etc. You secure the pump to the hot water pipe (exit) on the water heater, plug it in, then attach the cold water and hot water supply lines at the far away sink into the black attachment, then use their stainless fittings from the black attachment into your hot and cold water feeds at the sink. Easy peasy, about 10 minute total time installation.
http://www.homedepot.com/p/Watts-Hot...0800/100426993 Here is what I just installed. My faucets are now instant hot, and the cost is just a few cents a day for the electricity. I give it a two thumbs up.
Explain if you would. You install the pump at the water heater and a sensor at the distant tap? Is the sensor wireless or do you need to drill holes and run wires? Were is the sensor attached (to the braided supply line)? What have you found to be a convenient time schedule to run the pump (breakfast / dinner ??) How do you know it only costs pennys a day? Obviously the cost to run the pump is very very little, but you still lose heat energy from the water in the pipe. Pretty are to measure or calculate? Then again for some people $5 a month is too much to spend and for others $20 a month (still pennys a day) is well worth it. Thanks
