Chilipepper CP6000 re-circulating pump. From the time the hot water tap is turned on, to the time hot water actually arrives, thousands of gallons are wasted down the drain. Chilipepper eliminates water waste and saves time by recirculating the initial cool water back through your existing cold water line. When the water at your tap is the desired temperature, the Chilipepper turns itself off- no waste. Chilipepper is compatible with all modern hot water systems, including tankless . Chilipepper costs about $2 per year to run. The Chilipepper instant hot water pump is a small powerful micro-processor controlled pump that installs under your sink. The brain of the Chilipepper is a tiny computer on a chip. The computer monitors the temperatures, timing, sensitivity adjustment input, and the control wire inputs and directs the pump what to do and when. When you push the start button, the Chilipepper CP6000 pumps the water in a big loop from the water heater through the hot water piping to the Chilipepper, and on through the cold water piping back to the water heater inlet. Your Chilipepper Model CP6000 includes: The Chilipepper Appliance A push button Two brass "T" fittings Two brass thread adaptors One brass hose adaptors (Not Attached) One washer for hose adaptors (Not Attached) Three black plastic check valve spacers * In Addition to the Above, you will need to purchase four Stainless Steel (SS) hoses (SS is not required but recommended) with cone style washers, two for connecting the T fittings to the shut-off valves, and two for connecting the Chilipepper to the T fittings. The T fittings are 3/8" OD Comp and the Chilipepper fittings are 1/2" FIP. The length and thread size of the hoses needed to complete the installation depends on the shut off valves under the sink.
