The Recoup Pipe+ HE is a stand-alone vertical waste water heat recovery system for showers (WWHRS). Integrated on the floor below the shower, it is connected to the Recoup Pipe+ HE is an ideal product for new build developments, apartment blocks, home renovation, or for commercial and leisure applications with showers on the first floor and above. The Recoup Pipe+ HE impressively high efficiencies achieve maximum SAP points and returns on investment. It has all the benefits of a ""double walled"" exchanger combined with our PVC outer, it boasts up to 67% efficiency, is KIWA assessed, WRAS approved and Legionella Control risk assessed. The product is a Waste Water Heat Recovery System (WWHRS) for showers. It uses the heat from hot water that goes into the shower drain to increase the temperature of cold water via a copper heat exchanging system to produce preheated water. The preheated water is then fed back to the properties heating system, the shower in use, or both. This then reduces the demand for energy to heat hot water. It is an excellent and efficient way of retrieving generated energy from hot water that would normally go down the drain. Being completely passive it works as part of the standard plumbing with no moving or mechanical parts there is no end user interaction or planned maintenance required; a genuine ‘fit and forget’ product. No commissioning is required so any qualified plumber can install. There are 3 recognised and simple installation methods providing flexibility both in system design integration and installation on-site. No special tools are required for fittings and only regular plumbing materials are required in addition. The Recoup Pipe+ HE is very easy to design in to any house type and can even be incorporated into plans late on if compliance is at risk, unlike most other energy efficient/renewable technologies. The technology can also benefit products such as solar thermal, ASHP and centralised plant as it assists with load demand at peak times meaning expensive back up is not used, or plant specification can be reduced. It is also excellent for Passive Haus where 80% of the energy costs are for hot water so it makes a dramatic impact. Once installed the Recoup Pipe+ HE will provide a homeowner savings on the cost of every shower, return on investment can be as little as a couple of years in a family home. These energy savings obviously have a big impact on CO2 reduction and with showering the biggest use of hot water in the home, WWHRS will continue to deliver for the lifetime of the property as well as being relevant and beneficial well into the future.
