Well, when you’re water heater like mind is at one end of the house and shower at the other and it goes through 1/2 pipe takes time. Mine about 90 seconds, but I save water by cutting off shower while I lather up. Actually i’m The quit water conserver. IMO my style was built a44 backwards, the master bed room should of bee up front close to a/c and water heater. I have same problem with air reaching the back bed room with one little duct and 70 foot from the a/c unit.

Update: I timed mind from the longest Faust, took 38 seconds and shower at back of house took 52 seconds. Seems longer when waiting on it.

I put in a Watts recirculator pump in about 5 years ago. It only lasted about 18 months. It cost about $200 plus my time to install, that's over $10 a month. I have never replaced it, I'll just wait for the hot water, 90 seconds.

Default Tankless hot water?

I too have the tankless instant hot water system. Everyone in neighborehood knows of the proble. Takes forever to get hot water. 3-5 min not uncommon.
Problem is multifold.
1 tankless heater is at far end of garage, adding 15-20 feet of extra pipe to get hot water thru.
2 tankless heater is capped at 120 degrees. (This can be adjusted from instructions i found.)
3 lack of insulation on the hot water piping. (If you turn off hot water, it cools down very rapidly).

Only help i can see for this problem is.
1 relocate instant tankless heater. Not going to happen.
2 put mini 110v heaters at desired locations to assist.
3 increase hot water temperature per instructions.
