Need to find a pump to get hot water to kitchen sink faster.


I have a tri- level house and the kitchen sink takes very long time to get hot water to it. I need to see if inline pump will work and what should I get. Note I have electric water heater. I do hate to raise temp on the heater for kids safety. The water is pretty hot already when taking a shower.

Google "hot water recirculating pump" There are a few retro pumps that mount under your sink.

Rasing the water temperture will do not but cost more to run the heater.

That's what I'd do. In fact, I'm planning to do just that. Like the OP, my kitchen sink is the farthest fixture from the water heater. But our heater is a tankless so a recirc pump won't do any good. My plan is to put a small heater in the crawl space, which is dry, insulated, and has lights and some receptacles. The sink's supply piping is also down there so this should be an easy chore.
