Laing AutoCirc E1 Hot Water Recirculation Pumps
AutoCirc ACT-E1 instant hot water circulation pump system from Laing. Pump is installed under the sink or faucet farthest from the water heater -- where hot water usually takes the longest amount of time to arrive. A built-in temperature sensor automatically turns the pump on when the water temperature in the hot water supply line cools down to 85 deg. F. This cool water in the hot water supply line is then pumped into the cold water line and back into the water heater.
The pump turns off automatically when the hot water supply line to the faucet reaches 95 deg. F, ensuring the instant availability of shower warm water with maximum temperature hot water only seconds behind. AB1953 compliant.
NOT FOR USE WITH TANKLESS WATER HEATERS. NOTE THE E1 SERIES REPLACES THE ACT-303-BT(R)W PUMPS.

|#6||Q: The pump on my unit is going bad. The timed motor still working well. My question is -- Can I purchase the pump only for this model? Thanks
A: Unfortunately not. When they changed to the DC motors, they stopped selling parts. The good news is that the casting is the same, so it will pop right on.

A: It depends on where you are in the system and if the pump has run recently, but very little if any. I like to make sure people know it is at least a remote possibility in the interest of full disclosure
