Save Money by Recycling Hot Water

This revolutionary heat recovery system will slash your hot water costs by recycling energy.

As we know, a reduction in energy consumption is a must. We are trying to insulate and heat our homes in a more efficient way. We're trying to use greener forms of energy such as solar power and energy saving heat pumps, not only to save money but to provide a future for our children. Even with these systems, our hot water consumption has increased and still increases today! We're taking more showers and for a lot longer!

Vaportec Ltd has been producing and manufacturing heat exchangers globally for over 20 years. These heat exchangers are used in such diverse areas from heating swimming pools to cooling juice in wineries.

We thrive on challenges to try to reduce energy usage. 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.

The Showerex Energy Saver is simply installed in a shower waste pipe and transfers the heat from the waste "grey" water to the incoming mains cold water. This can represent a nominal saving of up to NZ $550* off your hot water usage every year.

*Nominal example: A family of four having an average shower using 10 l/min of water at 38°C for 10 minutes, once a day at $0.28 per kWh.

YHA uses Showerex to Save

You can recycle hot water and save money at the same time

By using Showerex, the YHA is able to recover the heat from grey water and use this to pre-heat the incoming cold water for their showers. Thanks to Showerex, the grey wastewater and the incoming cold water never mix.

The YHA are recovering approximately 40 - 45% of the heat from the wastewater and saving power on water heating in the process. By installing a Showerex on your shower, you too can save.
