Taco SmartPlug - Instant Hot Water Control

Taco's new SmartPlug™ will optimize hot water system efficiency and reduce electrical consumption up to 94% while saving 12,000 gallons of water per year.

The device adds intelligence to standard on/off hot water recirculation (HWR) pumps. Rather than plugging the standard HWR into the wall, plug it into the SmartPlug for improved, house/family-specific function.

In the "Smart" mode, the SmartPlug monitors and records weekly household hot water use patterns and adjusts HWR cycles accordingly. That way, hot water is provided quickly at all fixtures, only when needed.

The device offers an optional "Pulse" mode. In this setting, the circulator will cycle on and off to maintain hot water at all fixtures. No more waiting, no more wasting energy and water.

Users get even greater efficiency with the SmartPlug system. After 36 hours of inactivity, the device automatically turns off the pump until a need for hot water is detected; in this mode, it also cycles on once every seven days for 10 seconds to prevent corrosion or scale buildup.

SmartPlug can be used with any Taco domestic water 00® circulator with a 110 Volt line cord. No programming is required.

Watts Radiant Onix Tubing

What makes Onix™ perfect for radiant heat and snow melting applications? Cross-linked Durel EPDM is extruded into a tube then wrapped with an AlumaShield barrier and a second layer of Durel EPDM. This composite tube is reinforced with 1000 denier aramid cord, the same incredibly tough and heat resistant material used to make fire- and bulletproof shields. A third and final outer jacket of EPDM is applied. The result is a durable, flexible tubing formed of five heat and age resistant materials, proven in tens of thousands of installations over the years.

One of the best features of our Onix tubing is its aluminum barrier layer, AlumaShield™. Unlike plastic barriers, AlumaShield is unaffected by sunlight, UV radiation from fluorescent lamps, moisture, or elevated temperatures. Due to its placement inside the tube, the AlumaShield barrier can't be scraped off or damaged by typical job site abuse.

Onix is the product that can be installed with lifelong confidence in blazing heat and sunlight, or in Arctic frost and shadows. Used for commercial snow melting, space heating, residential staple-up and supply/return lines, you'll find Onix installed in thousands of quality projects every year.

  1. Can stand up to normal job site conditions 
  2. No special tools required 
  3. Tighter bend radius allows for entry into hard to reach areas 
  4. Can't be kinked 
  5. Temperature range from 180°F to -30°F 
  6. Resistant to UV degradation whether outside for a day or a year
