Where are hot water recirculation pumps installed? What do hot water recirculation pumps do?

A hot water recirculation pump is installed either on the farthest water fixture from your water heater, or directly on the water heater depending on the system. Commonly, people run cold water anywhere from one minute to several minutes waiting for it to heat up for use resulting in significant water waste. This pump keeps heated water in your water pipes, meaning you no longer need to waste cold water waiting for it to heat up to the desired temperature.
