The SmartPlus-e SmartPlug is designed to upgrade your hot water recirculation system. It adds intelligence to your system by learning when hot water is used in the home. The pipe-mounted temperature sensor records daily hot water usage patterns during the course of a week. Recorded data is used to automatically run the 006e3 at the same times the following week. So hot water is always available when it's needed. If your usage pattern changes, the SmartPlug adjusts automatically. — No programming required.


  • Easy to install: Upgrades your system to provide "Smart" hot water.
  • Water conservation: The average residence can save up to 12,000 gallons* of water per year by eliminating the wait for hot water to arrive at fixtures and taps.
  • Comfort and convenience: Hot water is available in seconds. No timers or programming required.
  • Efficiency: "Smart" setting maximizes hot water comfort and energy savings.
  • Reliability: The SmartPlus-e SmartPlug and 006e3 provide whisper quiet operation and industry leading electronics for proven performance and dependability.

SmartPlus-e SmartPlug Control Options & Features:

  • "Smart" Mode: When set to "Smart" mode, the SmartPlug monitors and records the home's hot water usage pattern over a 7 day period. The SmartPlug will use the preceding week's usage pattern to automatically cycle the 006e3 ON, so hot water is always available when it's needed. The recording and repeating process is continuous, week after week.
  • "Pulse" Mode: When set to "Pulse" mode, the SmartPlug will continuously cycle the 006e3 ON for 5 minutes, then OFF for 10 minutes to maintain hot water at all fixtures.
  • Vacation Mode: After 36 hours of no hot water usage, the SmartPlug will automatically turn the 006e3 OFF and remain off until hot water usage is detected.
  • Exercise Function: While in vacation mode the SmartPlug will cycle the 006e3 for 10 seconds every 7 days to prevent any corrosion or scale build up
