Recirculation pump questions -- Please help
I've got a Noritz N-069M for my two bathroom home. It mostly works, but there are a few problems. Specifically, it takes about 30 seconds for hot water to come out of the farthest fixture. And as far as I can tell, the dishwasher and clothes waster don't get much, if any, hot water unless I turn on the hot water about 30 seconds before starting a load.
Do you think a Metlund pump or some other type of recirculation pump would help? Why or why not? These things are pretty expensive. I'm willing to pay the cost, but only if it will allow me to quit wasting so much water. Any thoughts?
Also, if I do install one, it most likely will go in the master bath room, which is just a few feet from where we sleep. How loud are these things?
Thanks for any help or wisdom you can provide.
