Hot water recirculation systems come in various designs, however, they all fulfill the same function and involve the same installation steps. They can be installed by homeowners or by a plumber in London by following the next steps:

1.       it is very important to shut down all the water supply sources in the house, the main line is usually turned off in order to make sure no pipes burst when beginning to work;
2.       remove the shut-off valves on the pipe where the hot water recirculation pump will be installed and disconnect the line;
3.       place the recirculation pump and fix it to the line or to the floor and then connect it to the valves, depending on the type of installation;
4.       secure the pump by tightening the connection with the valves or the direct line leading to the water heater;
5.       turn on the water, make sure there are no leaks and check if the pump is working correctly.

It should be noted that most hot water recirculation systems are electronic, therefore they will need to be programmed. That is why it is best to have an emergency plumber inLondon do the work.
