Hot water help
I have an idea & I would love to know if you think this will work. If you know about plumbing, I would love to hear what you have to say.
I am having a problem with getting hot water to the bathroom of my home that is furthest away from the water heater. In the SUMMER we have to wait 5-7 minutes to get any hot water in that bathroom. In winter it is even longer. My idea is this:
Run a 1/2" copper pipe (insulated, of course) from the water heater to the hot water supply of the back bathroom where I am having the problem. This way, I create a "return" pipe. Attatch a 12V pump to this return and then back to the DHW supply. This will form a continuous loop of constantly hot water.
Hopefully, the water at the hot water supply in the back bathroom will be constantly hot, allowing instant hot water.
Will this work?
