    This past Spring I was told by Taco that they would be coming out with a revised bumblebee pump that would be more powerful and have reverse acting capability "before the next heating season". I touched base with them today for an update and was told nothing would be forthcoming "until some time maybe next year"....Ugh.

    Thats a bummer. I am happy with the current one. Just gotta see for sure if it moves enough btus to the during a high demand. It does recharge DHW awefully quick, but idk how much that actaully says. I know some of you guys are looking forward to the reverse acting and that should be interesting if/when it actually comes to fruition. Thanks for the update.

    Figures. The first go-around was late by years, so looks like they decided to double down and throw away any hope of gaining any credibility. Since it is a different and bigger pump I wouldn't be surprised if they abandon the attractive price-point if and when it is ever released. Perhaps if they spent less time worrying about a cute name and concentrated more on product development they would have fewer of these embarrassing episodes.
