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.
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.
This recycled energy is then used 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.
I've found the Vaportec products to be efficient & fit for purpose and would recommend them when suited for a particular application.
