3 Water Heater Accessories that Save Money and Prevent Loss

Rheem water heater

Our customers always ask us about different ways to save money with their water heaters.  We always recommend these accessories when we install new hot water heaters or repair existing ones. These accessories not only save money but can also prevent property damage or loss down the road.

Save water and energy with the WATTS Instant Hot Recirculating System
The Watts Instant Hot Water Recirculating System brings convenience and savings to your home, giving you hot water instantly at every faucet or shower when you need it. This unique product connects easily to existing plumbing. It saves up to 15,000 gallons of water per year and up to 10% of your water bill. This can also help prevent frozen pipes in the winter, depending on installation locations.

Stop Water Heater Leaks before they start with the FloodStop
A FloodStop is a leak detection system that is designed for residences. Installing a FloodStop on your water supply can help protect your home from flooding. When a leak is detected, FloodStop saves the day by sounding an alarm and automatically stopping the water supply to your water heater. All your other household appliances will continue to function normally. Every FloodStop kit comes with one motorized ball valve with ¾” NPT threaded fittings, a control unit, a leak sensor and an AC power adapter.

Water And Gas Safety Valves (WAGS Valves)
The Water And Gas Safety Valve, known as the WAGS valve, is created to cut off the water supply (as well as they gas supply in gas-fired heaters) in case of a water heater leak. The main objective of a WAGS valve is to reduce water damage and a possible gas leakage. A WAGS valve will work on all models of water heaters without an external power supply.

The WAGS sits in a drip pan under the unit and is activated when the water level exceeds ¾”. After the water and gas supply are shut off a red tag pops up to indicate its activation.

All water heaters will fail and leak eventually. Leaving your unit without a WAGS valve puts your home at risk. Legacy Water Heaters can install both a WAGS valve and drip pan to help protect your home from a property-damaging hot water heater flood.
