When I turn the handle for hot water I don't want to wait for it to heat up. I want it to be hot from the start. How can I accomplish this?

Multiple water heaters, culminating with a hot water heater.

>> No.1696297

there a pump like thing which you install in the warm water cycle and it constantly circulates your warm water in the pipes so it doesnt cool down, dunno how its called in english

You're looking for a European style hot water heater like the one Walter White installs after he's rich.

>> No.1696319

Recirculating pump or if you're a cheap bastard you could theoretically just run a hot line into a p trap primer, do it the farthest from the hot water heater as possible.

Insulate the hot line and you might not need to do either...

Get a wood stove and keep it fired all the time, with a kettle on the top. Be sure to top off the kettle every few hours.

>> No.1696374

Install a hot water recirculating line, if you have a tank style water heater you might not even need a pump. Do you have a basement? What kind of water heater do you have? Is the basement finished? How far from the water heater is the faucet?

small electric water heater (5-20 gal.) under the sink
use top ports so the line is as short as possible

>> No.1696423

leave your faucet running a little to keep the water moving in the pipes

It's called a point of use heater yes 5-20 gallons. Or watts makes a device that will recirculate a small amount of hot water back through the cold line to the hot water tank. Professional installation is reccomended

Insulate your pipes and hot water heater. Max setting on hot water heater

No, do not do this.

>> No.1697335

Through the cold line?????

Why the fuck not just 2 hit lines insulated together with pump?

>> No.1697567

instantly through a faucet is not possible, quickly through faucet is. with a central water heater install a pumped HW return line with loops up in wall / risers at each HW fixture to make HW outlet as close as possible to where the HW is drawn from. there will always be a short "slug" of kinda hot water in even the most correct HW systems at fixtures. old plumber here.

Put your hot water system close to the tap. Mine is prob 2.5m from my shower. I wait probably 4 seconds and she is scolding hot.
