Description for Taco 008-DM-PK

Taco D'MAND system is a hot water recirculation system that operates 24 hours a day and is designed to provide on-demand hot water, while saving water, energy and money.

Taco D'MAND system is typically installed in the most remote area of the house, where it takes the most time for the hot water to reach a plumbing fixture, such as a kitchen or a bathroom sink. Since this system is compact and quiet, it is well suited for installation under the sink in the kitchen cabinet or a vanity.

The idea behind the system is simple - it assures that there's on-demand hot water supply at the fixture at all times. The system can be activated manually, with a push of a button, or wirelessly, with an optional transmitter/receiver. At the same time the D'MAND system includes a sensor, which is smart enough to shut down the pump when the desired water temperature is reached.

Features:

  • Includes: D'MAND Circulator, Hard Wire Push Button, (2) Copper T's, (2) Flex Hoses, and Plumbing Kit
  • Runs Only When Activated by the User
  • Automatically Senses When Water is Hot Enough
  • Saves Water, Energy and Money
  • Saves Construction Costs - No new return line needed and no need to drain the system
  • Simple Installation

Installation was very easy, had to modify slightly to fit my application. Have a tankless water heater and it is the right product to enhance the operation of the WH. Water usage has significantly been reduced.

Amazing product solution for our home

By sbmiller02

from San Antonio, TX

Comments about 008-DM-PK Male NPT, 008 Pump w/ plumbing kit, 1/25 HP:

This has been an amazing product for my family. While initially more expensive than some other items offered by major do it yourself companies, it's well worth it.
We live in San Antonio, TX. Our hot water heater is in our attic. Our kitchen sink is about 70 feet of piping from the heater (we called TACO and they recommended the 008 model vice the 006 because of the length of pipe run). The master bath is about halfway between the hot water heater and the kitchen sink (physically along the main water loop).
It used to take us over 2 minutes and we wasted nearly 5 gallons of water just waiting to get warm water at our kitchen sink. Plus, it would also add that same 5 gallon demand to our water softener. We used to have to wait 1.5 minutes and waste nearly 3 gallons of water in the master bath shower. Again, also adding demand to our water softener.

With this on demand recirc pump, we now have to wait just about 1 minute (before turning on the faucet) and waste ZERO water for our kitchen sink. We only have to wait about 20 seconds (before turning on the faucet) for our master bath shower and again, no wasted water and no extra demand on our softener system.
We wired the fixed demand button at our kitchen sink and ordered the (RF wireless) system for our master bath. The pump is effectively silent. I honestly didn't think it was working and had to open the cabinet doors and listen closely. It has a very low "hum". While cooking or cleaning in the kitchen it takes just a minute of extra planning to push the button while we do other things. Turn on the kitchen faucet and the water is very warm in about 1 second. Same for our master bath, we only need to plan ahead about 20 seconds. We walk in and push the button, brush our teeth or use the toilet. Turn on the shower and we have nice and hot water in 10 seconds (likely from the distance of the main loop to the shower head).

Other products use a pump with a 24 hour timer that is connected to the hotwater heater and then a temperature sensitive connection under your furthest item from the water heater (in our case the kitchen sink). The problem with them is that they run only on the preset times that you have set on the timer. If you aren't home (ie Vacation) you have to remember to turn it off etc, if you are home and need the hot water at off times, you can't get it unless you waste the water or reset your times. Also, from my research, the temperature sensitive device under the sink fails a lot. We also considered a point of use hot water tank (2.5 gallon) under our kitchen sink but that only solves our kitchen issue and not our masterbathroom sinks and shower.

TACO's product puts it all in one device under the sink and you only use it when you want it. There is very little wasted water and no extra demand on your other systems (assuming you have whole house filters etc tied into the main loop).
This has been well worth the price for our family of 5. We left for two weeks and it didn't run at all. We have family visiting and we needed it about 5 times in one day. Regardless, significantly less wasted water, much less demand on our softener system and on our whole house carbon filter system (because the water just goes back to the water heater via the loops already established inside the house, path of least resistance).
Buy it, it's well worth it.

Product was exactly as described

Comments about 008-DM-PK Male NPT, 008 Pump w/ plumbing kit, 1/25 HP:

This pump was easy to install with the supplied t-adapters. Installation took about 30 minutes and it was ready to run. I did have to make an adjustment to the temperature sensor by calling the help line, but it has been performing perfectly ever since. A little pricey for me, but I feel it is worth the cost since I'm no longer wasting water down the drain. My wife loves having hot water the moment she opens the tap.

Great Product!

Comments about 008-DM-PK Male NPT, 008 Pump w/ plumbing kit, 1/25 HP:

Easy to install by yourself. Everything needed was supplied. Excellent quality throughout. But the best part is never having to run water down the sink again while waiting for the hot water to arrive. Just push the button, head for the shower, and enjoy warm water as soon as you turn it on. Don't know how we ever got along without it!

Works as promised

By Bricoleur

Comments about 008-DM-PK Male NPT, 008 Pump w/ plumbing kit, 1/25 HP:

It used to take several minutes for hot water to get to my upstairs bathroom, with a lot of wasted water going down the drain. With the D'Mand pump, the wait time is cut in three (about 40 seconds) and the water is recirculated (i.e. no waste). Even better, you can call for hot water as you enter the room and it is available soon after. The pump uses little power, is fairly silent and works well. However, I had a few issues when i first installed it.
1. Some debris caused the valve to stay open and it caused all kinds of funny things (like hot water in the cold and in the toilet as well as constant cycling of hot water by gravity). Once the debris was flushed out, these problems went away.
2. I had to adjust the temperature setting higher. You need to contact the company for instructions on how to do this (tech support was helpful) or search on the Internet.
I also installed additional shut-off valves to isolate the pump in case of problems, maintenance or if I am away.
All in all, very happy with the purchase.

      A:

      Male NPT refers to the connections on the 008 circulator itself. It has male threaded connections instead of the more typical flanged-style of connection.
