Installation is very simple. The connections of the Showerex fit most standard waste pipes.
Ideal for new builds, bathroom renovations, and can also be retrofit on pile homes.
The Showerex is simply installed in a shower waste pipe and transfers the heat from the waste "grey" water to the incoming mains cold water without direct contact.
A typical New Zealand household can save over 35,000 litres of hot water every year and reduce their CO2 emissions by over 250kg each year just by installing a Showerex 1400.
Do your part to save the planet by installing a Showerex in your home and save money at the same time.

Showerex can dramatically reduce hot water usage, saving your business money. If your business has one or more showers, you need Showerex.
Showerex is an effective solution for many businesses including:
Typical annual return on investment varies, but is often above 40% and can be as high as 200% per annum with a 6 month payback period.
On low pressure systems including pumped and rural systems, Showerex can give you a much better and more enjoyable shower while saving you money.
"Our house uses a low pressure hot water cylinder in combination with pumped bore water. Therefore, by heating the high pressure bore water we required less low pressure hot water, thus reducing our hot water heating bill and producing a higher pressure shower."

The Showerex Heat Recovery system's unique design utilises a patented tube known as Spirex tubing.
In our unique design, the heat is transferred through the space between the inner and outer tubes, so the waste water and the incoming pre-heated potable water never touch.
Our research shows that the most efficient and economical way to reduce energy consumption for showers, is to extract energy from the "grey" waste water and recycle it to pre-heat the incoming cold water.
The time for the incoming cold water to start heating is extremely quick and so it starts paying for itself almost instantly.
Showerex can recover 40 - 45% of the heat from the wastewater and save power on hot water heating in the process.
