A circulation pump (also known as a recirculation pump) circulates fluid in a closed circuit with the intent of ensuring hot water is always available close to the consumption point. Consequently, water circulation pumps are commonly used to circulate the water in hydronic heating or cooling systems. The main function of a circulating water pump is to reduce water wastage and increase comfort.
Uncontrolled pumps are normally used, given the relatively small flow variation but it depends on the size of the system. In larger systems, controlled pumps could be more advantageous to allow adjustment of the flow when starting the system and to be able to control the temperature.
