UH St. John’s Medical Center Maternity Wing
During the renovation of its maternity floors in 2023, UH St. John’s Medical Center in Westlake, Ohio, enlisted the expertise of Project Manager Adam Podway to address their hot water recirculation issues. Podway recommended CircuitSolver valves replace the manual balancing valves to streamline the installation process and automatically balance the system. Poway has advocated for CircuitSolver since he was introduced five years ago and states, “It’s in a league of its own.”

California Laboratory Remodel
In 2017, a pharmaceutical laboratory in California replaced its HVAC unit and installed our Drain Tempering Valves to cool the water from the humidifier before it went down the drain. The DTV worked perfectly because it’s such a compact installation. “It is one of those valves nobody else would appreciate without understanding the simplicity of this solution and installation,” said Ed Parisi, Plumbing Design Manager at ICS (Industrial Commercial Systems).

LEGOLAND® Castle Hotel
While constructing this 3-story hotel at the LEGOLAND® California Resort in Carlsbad, CA, Ed Parisi, Plumbing Design Manager at ICS, installed 99 CircuitSolver valves. “CircuitSolver valves are the premier balancing valves available,” Parisi notes. The commissioning agent and facility maintenance supervisor complimented the Domestic Hot Water System, stating they had never experienced a system with such consistently low “time to tap” readings.

“You install the CircuitSolver, set it, and forget it,” Eric McTee of ME Engineers remarks on the simplicity of the CircuitSolver. Operating largely in buildings with commercial kitchens, McTee prefers CircuitSolver due to the mitigation of potential accidents that could lead to failures in hot water circulation. He states that because of the simplistic design and installation, you reap a better-performing system that you don’t need to stress over.

USF Dormitory Hall
When Beacon Hall, the newest dormitory edition on the University of South Florida’s campus, opened, it had an evident hot water supply problem. It was said there were nearly half an hour wait times for their showers to heat, which was a massive waste of water on the university’s behalf and inconvenienced students. Mike Bishop, VP of Engineering at RGB Consulting Engineers, determined manual balancing valves were the main roadblock and recommended CircuitSolver. Since installation, the complaints of cold water and excessive water usage from a constant operation have halted.

Hilton Garden Inn
Nearly half of the Hilton Garden Inn in Denver, CO, was experiencing hot water supply issues. When the fluctuations became more prominent, they turned to Braconier, a plumbing contractor in the Denver area. Chris Watts, Plumbing Service Manager at Braconier, identified a complete lack of system balancing where hot water took the path of least resistance. Rather than rebalancing its existing system, the hotel opted for over 30 CircuitSolver valves to alleviate the problem.

St. Elizabeth Healthcare
For years, St. Elizabeth Healthcare in Edgewood, KY, had battled with an unreliable delivery of hot water to a number of their branches across the medical campus. To address this issue, MarkCo Plumbing was brought in and installed about 90 CircuitSolver valves at the end of every branch, replacing the manual balancing valves. After the successful CircuitSolver installation, St. Elizabeth Healthcare Edgewood now has access to an on-demand hot water supply in all wings, on every floor, and at every fixture.

The Austonian
Standing 65 floors and 680 feet tall, the largest residential building west of the Mississippi River was experiencing hot water delivery issues. With reports of up to 3-minute warm-water wait times, an effective solution was immediately demanded. CircuitSolver valves were installed throughout the entire building as well as individual units, which in turn resulted in a dramatic reduction in warm water wait times, as well as utility costs for the tenants.

Mental Health University Institute of Quebec
The hot water is supplied by the hospital’s power plant, which was historically “overheated” to account for the heat loss over its long recirculation lines. Regulations required the hospital to readjust the water temperature to an acceptable level, which resulted in the hospital experiencing a lack of hot water in some sectors. To alleviate this issue, 108 CircuitSolver valves were installed where the previously fixed flow valves lived. Hot water is now available on demand throughout the entire main pavilion.

Inspira Medical Center
During the Inspira Health Center construction in Mullica Hill, NJ, the 102 CircuitSolver Union Assembly Strainers were installed by MMC Contractors to meet the dynamic needs of a healthcare facility’s hot water recirculation system. Quickly after startup, the facility was supplied with hot water throughout the building without balancing procedures. Mike Formica of MMC Contractors commented, “CircuitSolver is the fastest and easiest way to balance a system.”

Berks Center for Digestive Health
The need for instantaneous hot water delivery in a medical facility is an absolute necessity. During this retrofit project, engineers were tasked with designing a new domestic hot water system to meet these demands. The solution was simple: More than 60 CircuitSolver valves were installed at the end of each branch to ensure efficient hot water delivery, all while keeping corrosion and erosion of pipes at a minimum.

The Industrialist Hotel
Ron Dombrowski, Superintendent of the project’s plumbing contractor, Ryco Inc., ensured there wouldn’t be a blemish on this 18-story luxury boutique hotel’s character. Over 150 CircuitSolver valves were installed during the retrofit of the 115-year-old Arrott building in downtown Pittsburgh, PA. On startup, the system automatically balanced itself within a few hours, and since opening on June 2, 2021, the hotel has not received a single complaint about hot water availability.
