I have talked with the owner of a bed and breakfast in my home town. He has a problem with hot water. It seems that there is such a length of pipe that there is often a long delay before hot water gets to gets to the shower if you are the first guest to shower. We talked about a return pump that would circulate the water in the pipes when it is not in use. Could the water be returned to the water heater periodically to be reheated. If so, where would one place the pump? I suspect that the best choice would immediately outside of the hot water heater. Would another placement make more sense or be more practical. Thank you for your assistance

Have you ever thought about placing an instant hot water heater next to the bath room? It has a thermostat on it so it would shut off when the hot water got to it. Let me know what you think. TKIDD@HIGHLAND.NET
The pipe along side my building’s water heater makes a clicking sound continuously. Someone advised me it may be the input regulator. In any event, is there a way to elimninate this noise, and if not is there at least a way to reduce it. The noise seems to come from inside the pipe, and the noise resonates into my apartment through my kitchen exhaust fan, heater, and bathroom fan. Please help! My building management doesn’t seem to think there is anything wrong here, and I need to advise them appropriately in order to get them to take action.
