Who benefits from this product? For example a typical family of 4 can save up to 15,000 gallons of water per year. The Chili Pepper uses less than $2.00 per year in electricity to operate. The Chili Pepper pumps approximately 2 -3 gallons of water per minute at a rate of approximately 50 feet in 20 seconds. The unit utilizes 3 amps of energy to operate and runs at 1/3 horsepower. This is pretty fast in hot water terms. For residential hot water demand systems, this means faster hot water and less waiting.The Chili Pepper works with any tank-less water heater. You can also use it with a traditional tank-type storage water heater and even solar water heaters or oil fired boiler type heaters. How great is it to buy a green product that does not need any additional plumbing and is easy to install? All of the connections are done with hoses. When you install the unit you do not have to turn the water off from your home, just the supply valves that are located under your sink.
How does this work? It's not a heater. It is a priming pump that works at a touch of a button. It pumps hot water from your water heater to your sink or shower, while sending the cool water back to the water heater through the cold water piping. Now that's a pretty cool eco-friendly product. When the control circuitry detects the correct water temperature it will automatically turn the pump off. You can adjust the shut-off with a knob on the Chili Pepper. When it detects the temperature over 96 degrees (F) it locks the pump until the water cools below the 96 degrees.
