Method and System for Heating and Conserving Water through Valve Controlled Loop

Disclosed is a method and system for heating and conserving water through valve controlled loop. The method and system conserves water by allowing the water to enter a fixture only when a desired water temperature is reached and alerting a user about the desired water temperature.

The method and system conserves water by placing a temperature sensor in pipes before a fixture such as, but need not be limited to, shower head and facets. Then, the method and system allows a user to input a desired water temperature into the sensor.

When the water temperature reaches the desired water temperature, the method and system opens a valve that allows the water to enter into the fixture. Also, the method and sytem reroutes the water of temperature less than the desired water temperature back to a water heater until the valve opens. Thus, the method and system conserves

water by not releasing the water to enter the fixture, until the water is warm to be used.

The figure below illustrates a flow of the method and system for heating and conserving

water through valve controlled loop.

As illustrated in the figure, the method and system employs an install pipe infrastructure to insert a valve before a fixture that reroutes the water back into a water heater.
