control•r™ - 5 Key Installation Tips

Check out the latest tips and tricks for a successful, stress-free installation 

  1. Additional wiring can run up to 300 feet (91 m) away from water heater (18-22 gauge wire required).
  2. Running cold water through the recirculation line will not force the pump to turn on.
  3. The OFF cycles for Circ-Logic are determined by configuration settings of the water heater PC Board. For maximum usage of the on-demand accessories, the water heater must be set to Comfort mode. Comfort mode cycles the pump more frequently ensuring the loop temperature remains higher.
  4. Power cycling or factory resetting the module will not reset Circ-Logic.
  5. For best results and maintaining hot water in the loop, all lines should be insulated.
