The Tank Hot Water Delay Reply To: Hot Water Delay



Thanks for your input, I’ll check on the orifice issue.
It is true that in the end one can get used to a 15/20 second delay, as it is not like losing a limb. I’m not at the “driving me crazy stage,” but my nature is to solve problems, I do not like this one, and so, I’d like to give it a good try. I’ll keep the Metlund D’Mand system in mind. Thank you again. Milty.


I have a Price Pfister kitchen faucet. One handle controls
the hot/cold water. I shut off the cold water under the sink. Then I turned the water control to hot, and opened up the hot water and ran it full bore. I timed it with my stop watch from the start: and I would say that the delay to warm/hot water timing cycle described in my first post [15/20 seconds] was shortened by approx 4 seconds. What do you infer from that?

As to the “recirculating line,” would you be so kind as to tell me how I might identify this line to see if I have it?

Thank you for your help.
