  • Recirc. Pump 24 hrs 365 days a year ???

    This residential home is about a 1960 Eichler ,slab on grade. The Plumber that installed the system did this. He reduced the 3/4" copper to 1/2" before the pump. Cavation wore through the 1/2 " at the pump head and top pump fitting . I want to go with a grundfos home comfort with timer and Temp clip. I am worried about the under slab copper developing leaks ! Was told to only change out 1/2" to 3/4". How would You handle this one ? Thanks Kevin
    I can build anything You want , if you draw a picture of it , on the back of a big enough check .

    that's about the best pump for that application. you can't be responsible for the piping that's already paper thin. just put it all in writing and cya.

    do they really need a pump? leave the system off for a couple days and have them report back to you.
