Chilipepper CP8000 operates only when the user actually wants hot water. It is dormant 99% of the day. The user must turn the pump on by pressing a demand switch. It then runs for a few seconds or a minute (this varies depending on the house plumbing), then automatically turns off when hot water arrives. A traditional circ pump runs either continuously, or during the hours set by a timer. Therefore, a traditional pump has significant hidden costs to heat the water it pumps daily - roughly $150 per year in energy costs alone. Chilipepper costs about $2 per year to run, making it the most efficient system available in terms of energy and water conservation. Chilipepper Hot Water Demand System is perfect system to use when water is a valuable resource - which is true for a lot of Western and South-Western States.

The Chilipepper CP8000 is powerful enough to trigger a tankless water heater. To do this, it has a powerful motor that will pump up to 2 gal/min. This motor is audible, but it runs only a short time. It is not silent, like a traditional low-flow circ pump. The Chilipepper motor is similar to a small blender motor, so you should expect to hear it working during the short time it is operating. The sound of money, water and time being saved whenever you use it!
