Consumers everywhere are just beginning to realize the importance of water conservation. The Hot Water Lobster is a do-it-yourself solution that saves not only water but also money.

The Hot Water Lobster Instant hot Water Valve incorporates the flexibility of an adjustable temperature control with quality materials and workmanship for a long maintenance-free life and easy installation (not requiring electrical wiring, timers or perishable pumps).

The Hot Water lobster Instant hot Water Valve is designed to work with any hot water system that has a hot water tank in good condition (to enable thermal convection within the tank to circulate the water through the pipes).

Since the thermal convection (the rising of hot water and sinking of cooler water) takes place within the hot water tank, you can expect success with hot water tanks below the valve, on the same level as the valve as well as hot water tanks on levels above the valve, vertical runs over 5-stories and linear runs over 200 ft.

The Hot Water Lobster Instant Hot Water Valve is intended to create a closed loop within your hot water system.  Typically one unit is all that is necessary (located at the end or close to the end of your plumbing run).  This allows other facets or showers along your hot waterlines (between your tank and the valve) to also have faster hot water (by keeping the main hot-water-run hot).

The thermal convection (warm water rising and cool water sinking), which takes place within your existing hot water tank, and the normal use of cold water create a higher water pressure on the hot water side of your plumbing system. This pressure differential circulates the warm water through your plumbing system.

When the hot water cools at the Hot Water Lobster Valve, the valve slowly opens allowing the cooler water to cross through the valve to the cold-water side of the plumbing. The thermal convection (within the hot water tank) draws the cooler water (through the cold water pipes) to the bottom of the hot water tank, while it forces the hotter water (from the hot water tank) into the hot water pipes.  When the hot water reaches the valve, the valve slowly closes and stops the crossover flow of water.  The cycle repeats when the valve cools below the adjustable temperature setting.

The Hot Water Lobster Instant Hot Water Valve does have a 30-day unconditional money back guarantee, which should provide you with adequate evaluation time (as well as a 10-year parts and labor warranty).

SAVE WATER! The Hot Water Lobster Instant Hot Water Valve provides faster hot water which also saves, water, time and money. How Long does it take for hot water to get to your faucet or shower? A lot of precious water is wasted down the drain while waiting for hot water. Even worse is the cost to heat the cold replacement water, which enters your house at ground temperature.

STATISTICS! * A typical family wastes approximately 12,000 gallons of water annually waiting for warm water to reach the tap.

*as determined by GAMA (American Manufacturing Association)

HOW IT WORKS! When the water in your hot water pipe and the Hot Water Lobster control valve cools below the user adjustable temperature (45-150 degrees F), the thermal materials within the Hot Water Lobster control valve contract, and silently open the valve. Thermal convection within your hot water tank naturally circulates the cooled water through your existing cold water pipes and back to the hot water tank for reheating. Your existing hot water tank now uses less energy reheating warm water instead of cold ground temperature water. When fresh hot water enters your hot water pipe and the Hot Water Lobster control valve, the valve automatically closes. This maintains hot water at the control valve without wasting water or energy. Turn on your faucet or shower and you get instant hot water. When you mount the Hot Water Lobster instant hot water control valve in the fixture furthest from your hot water tank (as shown in the installation diagram) all other fixtures in your house will also have faster hot water.

NO ELECTRICITY NECESSARY! The Hot Water Lobster is all mechanical and designed to provide an electricity free solution to maintain hot water at the tap. This makes installation a snap (in less than 10 minutes). Other hot water solutions require the use of electricity and pumps that make installation difficult and the pumps are often noisy.

MORE HOT WATER! Adds as much as 10% more capacity to your current hot water system (by keeping the water in your hot water pipes hot!).

KEEP PIPES FROM FREEZING! The Hot Water Lobster instant hot water valve automatically allows water in your pipes to circulate when the control valve cools below the set temperature-even when your electricity goes out.

REDUCES CONDENSATION! The Hot Water Lobster instant hot water valve reduces condensation on pipes and toilets.

MAINTENANCE FREE! The Hot Water Lobster has a solid brass valve body with an adjustable thermal controlled mechanical stainless steel valve stem enclosed in a mounting box.

EASY INSTALLATION! The Hot Water Lobster comes complete with mounting box, 4 sets of 12" flexible water lines and brass fitting. All pre-assembled and tested for an easy 10 minutes installation.
