Navien NaviCirc 30022965A Recirc Valve Kit, NPE-180A NPE-210A NPE-240A
Get instant hot water far away from your water heater, even without a recirc loop
NaviCirc provides instant hot water far away from your NPE-A series heater, even with existing pipes, without a dedicated return line. Many homes do not have a dedicated recirculation loop installed. Retrofitting a home to install the loop is often prohibitively expensive.
NaviCirc solves that problem with a smart, simple idea. With the NPE-A unit’s built-in pump, water circulates through the NaviCirc to preheat the hot water lines, using the old supply line as the return line back to the water heater.
• Designed and optimized for the Navien NPE-A series water heaters: NPE-180A, NPE-210A and NPE-240A. If the heater was manufactured before 12/14/2015, then it would need an upgraded PCB and front panel which you can buy here.
How it works:
The NaviCirc allows you to use the cold water supply line as the return line back to the water heater. The NPE-A unit’s built-in pump circulates water through the NaviCirc to preheat the hot water lines. For best results, install the NaviCirc recirculation valve at the accessible water fixture that is furthest from the water heater.

Frequently Asked Questions ("FAQ")
Q1: Will the NaviCirc work with my NPE-180S (or any Navien NPE-S series unit, or another tankless water heater model without a built-in recirculation pump)?
Q2: I have a Navien tankless water heater. I am disappointed by how long it takes for the hot water to get the sink faucets which are in two separate vanities. If I have two sinks in a bathroom, does each sink need a NaviCirc, or just the sink that is the farther from the water heater?
Q3: Does this work with NFC-175 unit and Navien HotButton? Page 35 of operators/install manual says it does. And what temperature does the valve close at?
