    GPM for dedicated recirculation line.

    "Continuous" Grundfos recirculation pump stops and starts! Why??

    I just moved into my new house, where I got a looped hot water recirculation system installed. I had asked the plumber if he was installing a pump that would sense the water temperature and run as needed, and he said "Yes, it has a built-in temperature sensor, but they usually run all the time"...
