John,
I am wondering about the device that's on the hot water heater. What is it? What was involved installing it?

It sits on top of the water heater and there is a device under the bathroom sink. From what I understand it basically circulates hot water so that when you turn on the hot water you get it. There is a clock on top of the unit so that you can program when you want the hot water. I have set it for morning, mid afternoon, and evening. You might want to call the Solar Lights guys to get the information.

Wish I could be more informative.

Aren't there devices that sit right under the sink in question and provide instant hotwater without going to the hotwater tank? It's kinda what I was thinking of doing but have not done the research yet. The device you mention appears to circulate hot water from the hot water tank. Wouldn't that be an engery hog? In my CYV the hot water tank to the master bathroom is at opposite ends. It takes forever to get hot water from the tank in the garage.
